PSV v Man United: Memphis boosted to make old side pay

| 15.09.2015

He may have failed to register in the Premier League so far but with Wayne Rooney ruled out through injury Memphis looks likely to be the biggest threat as the Champions League resumes.

The Dutchman bagged a brace and set up one more as United beat FC Bruges 3-1 on his Red Devils’ European debut and the former PSV man has been boosted to leave victorious on his return to Eindhoven this week.

Ladbrokes have increased the odds of the 21-year-old scoring in a Manchester United win from 11/4 to a more tempting 7/2.

And with this match qualifying for the bookmaker’s Sharp Shooter special there could be plenty of people backing the United winger to net first.

As mentioned, Memphis has struggled in front of goal in England but a return to Holland could give him a huge confidence boost after netting 25 goals in 41 games for the Eredivisie outfit last season.

The forward is priced as the 11/2 joint favourite to open the scoring and after firing first on six occasions last season he looks a solid bet to repeat the feat on his return.

And, should the United man get the ball rolling the first 25 minutes, Ladbrokes will pay out at a hefty 11/1 as part of its generous Sharp Shooter offer.*

PSV have kept a clean sheet in just three of their last 11 Champions League games and with Memphis more than familiar with the side’s players and tactics no one looks better placed to fire United to victory.

Not convinced by Memphis? United new boy Anthony Martial is riding high on a wave of confidence after netting the final goal against Liverpool on his debut and with the Frenchman also priced up at 11/2 to open the scoring here backing him to continue his dream start to life as a Red Devil could also prove a shrewd bet.
