Anthony Martial is the answer to a puzzling Manchester derby.
At best it's only the second-most important game either club plays in the next nine days.
So many questions.
If we offered Pep Guardiola or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer the choice between defeat today (4.30pm) or European doom, what’s the call?
Will Pep decide to shield Kevin de Bruyne? Does Ole opt to shelve Harry Maguire? Or even Bruno Fernandes?
Would a reboot of The Good Life work with Priti Patel playing a shorter, more sadistic version of bourgeois buzzkill Margo Leadbetter?
All surely a definite 'maybe', but only time will tell.
What we know right now is United are W6 D2 L3 vs the Big Six, and 8/13 City money-buyers could be in for a sweaty time.
Two bets stand out. Martial is undervalued at 9/4 (Fred) ‘anytime scorer’ on his numbers.
And the stats look ultra-solid for a nibble of ‘United score a penalty’ at 9/1 (Bet365) – their raw home data puts 2/1 nearer the mark.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin can help Everton make the most of any overdue change of fortune at Chelsea (2pm).
So far the luckless Toffees’ most notable achievement of 2019/20 is conceding a Christian Benteke goal.
But they are transformed going forward under Carlo Ancelotti – and Chelsea boast just six clean sheets in 22 homes.
Calvert-Lewin is flying for the new boss, punt him ‘anytime scorer’ at 9/4 (Bet365).
Gylfi Sigurdsson is the fun ‘anytime’ longpoke at 8/1 (Fred).
It’s Ronaldo vs Lukaku behind closed doors when Inter Milan go to Juventus (7.45pm) in Serie A – don’t miss Cristiano Ronaldo ‘anytime scorer’ at a very juicy 11/8 (Unibet)
Jamie Vardy will be back when Leicester host Aston Villa (tomorrow, 8pm), a boost for the Foxes, who have forgotten how to score a goal.
It’s slipped Vardy’s mind too. Not a Scooby since Christmas.
Few sides are better placed than Villa to jog his memory, but his prices are daft.
Back the Villans’ Wembley nearly man, big Bjorn Engels , to serve up something unforgettable at 18/1 ‘anytime scorer’ (Bet365, 888sport).
Last week: Winners at 21/10, 2/1 & Evs.
