Manchester United can capitalise on Spurs defeat to Bournemouth in brushing away their recent complacency and is a must win game under all circumstances. Although Spurs are third, puts Spurs in sight of falling outside the top four. Ole’s men will be instructed not to lose and are very short at 4/11 in a fairly localised game they should win.

Huddersfield can close out their disappointing Premier League campaign playing for pride, but for a side that have netted just 20 goals in 36 games makes you wonder where the firepower will come from. With their leaky defence, which has seen them average conceding just over two goals per game, but to their credit have nothing but pride to play for. With Manchester United’s failure to win in any of the last three in the league, confidence on United is sparse.

Team News

Diakhaby and Mbenza should continue to feature in the starting eleven, however Billing, Duhaney and Laurent Depoitre are potential doubts for today.s clash.

David de Gea will look to put his recent errors behind him, with the united gaffer starting with de Gea once again

Marcos Rojo could start in defence if Smalling or Jones recover from injury, but may still be left to settle for a place on the bench.

Alexis Sanchez could feature dependent on Ole’s final strategic set up.

Potential Huddersfield Starting XI: Lossi, Smith, Schindler, Kongolo, Durm, Grant, Hadergjonaj, Mooy, Stankovic, Bacuna and Mounie

The Verdict

What has happened at United since the appointment of Ole and the confidence booster the club got. From a complete turnaround on form to a side heading back towards a complete lack of confidence.

It will be game over almost if United are unable to win for them to go into the last day of the season with a top four up for grabs in what could well be a highly anticipated final matchday of the season in recent years.

Trying to make a case for United at a decent price has to go down the road of goals as their goal difference is inferior to their counterparts in neighbouring positions, meaning even if they won, and either Spurs fail to win on the final day and Chelsea slip up in their remaining two games, Arsenal are still in front of the red devils on points and goal difference.

United need goals and Huddersfield have not been great at keeping goals out. The bookies have the pricing correct on the Asian Handicap offering Manchester United at evens to win by two or more. European equivalent prices for the same bet is as short as 5/6 emphasising the importance of knowing the array of markets available for effectively the same outcome.

I am confident United will win, but a question mark whether they can net two clear goals is the issue. As mentioned, they need the goals and play the second leakiest defence in the Premier League. The Asian handicap is just 1/2 on United winning by one goal as the insurance on this, but 77/100 with BetVictor United win by 2 or more, with a half stake loss if they win by exactly one.

I wanted to take the -1.5 Asian handicap and go in at 68/67 with the same firm, but would rather take a slightly shorter price and a half stake refund, if they fail to win by more than one and will go max stakes.
