Coral’s bet of the day
- Manchester United will look to bounce back at Northampton
- Marcus Rashford has struck twice this season for the Red Devils
- The teenager netted the winner against Hull City
- Rashford was on target in the defeat to Watford too
- Northampton have won just two of their 11 games in normal time this term
- The hosts drew first seven matches of the campaign in 90 minutes
Rashford to score first at 14/5
Coral’s latest bet of the day comes from the live televised EFL Cup round 3 clash between Manchester United and League Two outfit Northampton at the Sixfields Stadium.
The Red Devils have endured a run of three defeats in all competitions but will be confident of bouncing back against a side currently three divisions below them, and their young attacking talent Marcus Rashford can be backed at 14/5 to open the scoring.
Man Utd’s teenage frontman has been in fine scoring form of late, despite his team suffering from several disappointing results, and he is set to be unleashed once again as Jose Mourinho’s men make a midweek trip to Northampton.
Clinical Rashford to open proceedings
Rashford is set to enter his latest match-up as Man Utd’s leading goalscorer in all competitions this year and the 18-year-old has bagged 10 goals in 23 appearances since making his senior debut.
The in-form teenage talent was on target in the win over Hull City, netting the decisive strike very late on to secure three points, then went on to dispatch in the disappointing defeat to Watford last time out.
Man Utd have also never lost to their next opponents, so recent history bodes well for the travelling Red Devils, while their young marksman Rashford will look to make an impact on his latest appearance. Northampton have also won just two of their 11 games this term in normal time, drawing the first seven.
So, make sure to back Rashford to score first in this EFL Cup clash at 14/5 as Coral’s latest bet of the day!
