Manchester United Favourites to Win at Home on Thursday

Manchester United will look to shrug off a number of disappointing losses on Thursday when they play host to Zorya in Europa League Group Stage action.

Man Utd got their Europa League group stage results off to an inauspicious start after they lost to Feyenoord. Thanks to that result, Manchester United currently sits last in their group, behind Feyenoord, Fenerbahce and Zorya.

The good news for Man Utd is that they rebounded back into form last weekend after they annihilated the defending EPL champions from Leicester City 4-1. Paul Pogba turned in his best performance as a member of Man Utd in the match, as the team seemed to get a spark after Wayne Rooney was left on the bench for most of the match. Manchester United looked overwhelming in that contest, and they will be looking to carry the momentum forward into their match against Zorya on Thursday.


As mentioned, Man Utd is the big favourite to win at home on Thursday. Here are the current betting odds:

Man Utd, 2/11
Draw, 13/2
Zorya, 22/1

As you can see, Zorya is a 22/1 underdog to win at Old Trafford on Thursday. In short, the oddsmakers are telling you that Zorya will need a small miracle to win.

The anytime goalscorer odds are topped by the names that you would expect, including:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, 8/13
Marcus Rashford, 5/6
Wayne Rooney, 1/1
Paul Pogba, 6/4


After a very strong start to the season, Manchester United has sagged over the past 4-5 weeks though it appears as though they might be returning to form. Don't expect Zorya to offer up too much resistance on Thursday.
