Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United are the most successful English football club in history, with the Red Devils having won the championship title on twenty occasions, although they’re currently playing second fiddle to neighbours Manchester City and arch-rivals Liverpool.

United enter the 2019/20 football season off the back of a sixth-placed finish in the English Premier League last time around, with most people expecting them not to challenge for the title but instead be involved in a scrap to finish in the top four so that they can return to the Champions League.

The fact that the bookmakers are prepared to offer 40/1 about Manchester United winning the 2019/20 Premier League title tells its own story, while most bookies have odds-against quotes of around 6/5 that the north-west giant finish in the top four of the table.

Will Manchester United Win the Premier League Title?

While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has spoken about making Manchester United a title challenger, the bookmakers don’t expect the Red Devils to be anywhere near the top of the table for the 2019/20 campaign and it’s also hard to see them challenging for the 2020/21 crown. The reality is that they have lost major ground to teams like City and Liverpool, while Spurs also seem in a stronger position.

Manchester United are 40/1 to win the Premier League and it appears that their best chance of winning silverware is by triumphing in either a domestic cup competition or alternatively going all the way in the Europa League. Doing this would also help them return to the Champions League the following season.

Red Devils Currently Favourites to Win Europa League

Jose Mourinho led Manchester United to a Europa League triumph during the 2016-17 season and perhaps Solskjaer will do the same three campaigns later, with bookmaker bet365 going 11/2 about the Red Devils winning UEFA’s secondary club competition.

It’s hardly ideal for United supporters to be competing outside of the Champions League although the bottom line is that they’re a big fish in a smaller pond as far as this competition is concerned, with the Europa League bound to become a big priority if it appears that the Red Devils are going to miss out on a top four spot.

While Manchester United are currently favourites to win the Europa League with most bookies, it’s worth noting that there will be eight teams dropping into the competition from the Champions League after the group stage of that tournament is complete.

United 9/1 to Win FA Cup for the 13th Time

Manchester United have a proud footballing history and that includes winning the FA Cup on twelve occasions, with the most recent of these being the 2015-16 season where they defeated Crystal Palace in the final. It was the only piece of silverware that Louis van Gaal won during his time at Old Trafford and Solskjaer will not want to go through the current campaign potless if he’s to stay in charge.

Bet365 currently have 9/1 that the Red Devils win the FA Cup this season, with that 2015-16 triumph the only time they have won this piece of silverware since 2004 and it would give the fans some much-needed cheer after witnessing rivals Manchester City land the domestic treble during the 2018-19 season.

Could Manchester United win EFL Cup Instead?

United are among the favourites to win the EFL Cup and they might be able to take advantage of the fact that other leading English clubs are likely to field second-string teams for the duration of the competition. The Red Devils might have a disjointed squad with lots of high-earners still on the books, although it gives the manager options with team selection.

Being in the Europa League means that United won’t come into the EFL Cup until the third round of proceedings and that means just a handful of games stands between them and a chance to win this piece of silverware. It was a competition that a Jose Mourinho-led team won in 2017 thanks to a star performance from Zlatan Ibrahimovic against Southampton in the final.

Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Get Sacked by United?

Twelve months ago, it might have seemed implausible that Solskjaer would be permanent manager of Manchester United coming into the 2019-20 season, although the Norwegian took the Old Trafford hot seat on a temporary basis after Jose Mourinho’s acrimonious departure and promptly delivered the sort of results which means the awarding of a contract.

Whether or not Solskjaer serves out his time at United is open to debate. The previous season ended in a disappointing fashion and the famous Champions League win over Paris Saint-Germain was followed by a flat couple of performances against Barcelona where the Red Devils were roundly outplayed.

Several bookmakers have a Premier League Sack Race market and Solskjaer is trading as one of the favourites to be the first top flight manager out of a job. It’s clear that he’s not in a particularly secure position considering that the United post is a high-profile role and that expectation levels are high when it comes to delivering results.

Who Will Be Next Manchester United Manager?

The big problem for Manchester United when sacking Jose Mourinho is that they didn’t have a clearly-defined idea of who his replacement was going to be. Solskjaer was initially hired as an interim coach and the absence of available options meant that the Norwegian was given the role on a full-time basis although it’s hard to argue that he has the requisite experience for such a big job.

Mauricio Pochettino has long been linked to the possibility of arriving at Old Trafford and the Argentine is clearly involved in some kind of power struggle with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy, with the former Southampton coach regularly suggesting that he might leave White Hart Lane when the time is right.

Pochettino has implemented a long-term plan at Spurs which is paying dividends, while we’ve also seen Zinedine Zidane linked to the Manchester United hot seat in the past, although the Frenchman has returned to his beloved Real Madrid for the time being and seems set on remaining there in some shape or form.

Another manager to be linked to Manchester United is Gareth Southgate who has done a successful job with the England national team but he might choose to remain part of the FA set-up even if he eventually stands down as Three Lions coach. There is also Phil Neville who has shown himself adept at managing the England Women’s team and will clearly have designs on coaching at Old Trafford.

Michael Carrick is Solskjaer’s right-hand man and he’s another former Manchester United player who could eventually be open to taking the role on a full-time basis, although the Red Devils might opt for someone more experienced and Max Allegri keeps cropping up as a possible option.

Who Will Be Manchester United Top Scorer?

Several bookmakers offer betting on the leading Manchester United scorer in the Premier League this season, with Marcus Rashford trading as the 13/8 favourite with bet365 after it emerged that Solskjaer is going to give the England striker plenty of game time for the 2019-20 campaign.

Rashford hasn’t yet been particularly prolific since emerging into the first-team at Old Trafford, although he should get well into double figures this season and the same can be said of Anthony Martial who is surprisingly big at 5/1 to score the most goals for the Red Devils.

The Frenchman appears to have taken up a central striking role during several of United’s pre-season friendlies and you could do worse than consider him at a meaty 66/1 to be Premier League top scorer, with Martial having previously been touted as the next Thierry Henry.

Paul Pogba appears likely to stay at Old Trafford and the Frenchman is a 7/2 chance to plunder the most goals, with the midfielder likely to be on penalty duties for United and the introduction of VAR could see the team awarded plenty of spot kicks for the duration of the campaign.

Alexis Sanchez would be a big price at 12/1 if we were certain that the Chilean would be playing for United next season and also if we knew that he would play a central role for the team. However, his time at Old Trafford has not been a happy one to date, with Mourinho signing him on an apparent whim and Solskjaer has a puzzle to solve with the former Barcelona and Arsenal forward.

Bet on Which Trophies Manchester United Will Win

Several bookmakers offer customers the chance to bet on Team Outright Wins, which means that you can decide whether or not Manchester United will bag silverware during the course of the season and which trophies will find their way into the Old Trafford cabinet.

Unfortunately for Red Devils supporters, it appears that United are far less likely to be potless come the end of the 2019-20 campaign than actually win anything. At the time of writing, they are trading at 2/7 to not win any silverware this term compared to the 5/2 that they lift a major trophy.

United start the campaign with four bites of the cherry, although the fact that they are trading at 40/1 to win the Premier League means we can practically rule out their chances of becoming English champions, with the domestic cup competitions representing a more viable proposition.

For those optimistic supporters, you can get 66/1 that Solskjaer or another manager steers the team to an FA Cup and EFL Cup double, with the club keen to land some kind of silverware to boost their credibility as a global brand.

Perhaps the EFL Cup will prove the easier competition to win and you can get 50/1 that Manchester United will claim the first domestic silverware of the campaign before also landing the Europa League at the end of the season.

For those wildly optimistic supporters, odds of 1000/1 are available that Solskjaer pulls several rabbits out of the hat to land the quadruple of Premier League, FA Cup, EFL Cup and Europa League. Similarly, you can get 500/1 that they emulate City’s achievement of twelve months previously by securing a domestic treble.

Manchester United’s Recent History in a Nutshell

As mentioned, Manchester United have fallen on hard times in recent seasons. While they have won the English championship title on twenty occasions, the most recent success occurred at the end of the 2012-13 season when Sir Alex Ferguson’s amazing era ended and the Scot passed the reins to David Moyes.

Since then, it has been a largely troubled six seasons for a club who had experienced so much success under Ferguson. This was a manager who had engineered 13 titles in the space of 21 campaigns and it was the sort of act that Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho found hard to follow.

Van Gaal did enjoy that FA Cup triumph in the 2015-16 season, while Mourinho will point to the fact that he steered the Red Devils to a cup double a season later, with United landing the Europa League trophy and also the EFL Cup during the same campaign.

However, there’s little doubt that United have now been leapfrogged by noisy neighbours Manchester City, with Liverpool have also stolen a march and it’s possible that the Red Devils might have to scrap for a place in the top four along with Arsenal and Chelsea this term, while Leicester and Wolves will be ambitious when it comes to a top six players.

Manchester United’s Key Players for the 2019/20 Season

It’s clear that Manchester United have identified that they need to build for the future. While the squad hasn’t been reshaped the way that Solskjaer would like it, the Red Devils have captured Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Daniel James during the summer of 2019 and both players look set for a bright future.

Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial have been picked out by the manager as forwards who are set for bright futures at the club, while Paul Pogba looks set to remain at Old Trafford despite the Frenchman proving to be a divisive player among supporters despite having star quality.

It remains to be seen whether United will recruit a central defender although Victor Lindelof looks set to become a permanent fixture in the team and there’s plenty of good things to say about David de Gea who continues to demonstrate that he’s among the best goalkeepers in the world.
