Bookies expect Van Gaal to make his mark on United this season
Louis Van Gaal is rated at 5-1 with leading bookmaker Coral to be named LMA Manager of the Year in his first season with Manchester United. The Reds are 5-1 to win the Premier League title in which they are third best in the betting behind 15-8 favourites Chelsea and 12-5 shots Manchester City.
The fixture list has been kind to the Dutchman whose side are 4-9 to go unbeaten in August and 9-4 to win all three games against Swansea, Sunderland and Burnley in the opening month of the campaign.
“We believe Manchester United will be much better this season under Van Gaal in which we rate them as third best in our betting. They are odds-on to go unbeaten in August as they will be short priced favourites to avoid defeat in their opening three fixtures,” said Coral’s John Hill.
