Man Utd have started pre-season in good form

United had a good start to pre-season, scoring four goals against Liverpool and Melbourne Victory on their tour of Australia.

The Dutch boss is keen to maintain that momentum and take it into the new season after their disappointing campaign last year.

But early signs appear to be positive and punters have responded accordingly.

And this despite the continued absence of the star man and best scorer of last season, Cristiano Ronaldo.

His future still remains up in the air as he trains alone in Lisbon away from the squad on their trip Down Under.

Betfair says United attracted 27% of all individual bets on the next Premier League winner market.

This percentage is more than Manchester City (11%) and Liverpool (7.4%) combined.

This support is despite the Red Devils going 25-1 to win the title this coming season.

Spurs are next best backed, with 22.5% of all bets placed on Antonio Conte’s men.

They have spent heavily in the transfer market as they look to test themselves against Europe’s elite in the Champions League this term.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min are set to lead the line alongside new boy Richarlison and Spurs are third favorites to win the league with Betfair at 14/1 – ahead of Chelsea at 16/1.

West Ham have 3.8%, Newcastle 2.2% and Nottingham Forest surprisingly follow with 2% of all individual bets.
