The season starts now as new-look Manchester United welcome QPR to Old Trafford with the latest Man Utd odds and free bets released this morning.
The transfer day deadline captures of Danny Blind and Radamel Falcao, in addition to the earlier signing of Angel Di Maria have given United a new edge to them and restored the belief that they can challenge after a difficult start to the season.
The Louis Van Gaal era at United may have seen lavish signings but as of yet results have not matched the outlay with the club yet to win in the league this season and already out of the capital one cup.
FALCAO at 4/1 ANYTIME!
Paddy Power enhance price from 4/5
Paddy Power have announced they are ENHANCING the price of Rademel Falcao to score ANYTIME for Manchester Utd v QPR – Boosted from 4/5! More details below!
The captures of Falcao and Blind look to set to give the club a big lift however with the pair along with Luke Shaw and Marcos Rojo, two more summer signings, set to make their debut on Sunday.
The debate as what formation and what strikers Van Gaal will use will continue right up to kick off on Sunday. The early signs however is that the Dutch coach will continue with the 3-5-2 system with Rojo at the back alongside Jonny Evans.
The Agentine defender won’t get to play alongside Phil Jones just yet however with the England defender set for a month on the sidelines with a torn hamstring.
Jones will be joined on the sidelines by Ashley Young however Ander Herrera and Rafael are both in line to feature. Herrera could line up in midfield alongside Blind and Di Maria with Rooney, Falcao and Robin Van Persie vying to start up front.
QPR for their part would love to have the same striker problems that Van Gaal has. The newly promoted side sold their star man Loic Remy to Chelsea just before the close of the window meaning that the relatively unproven Charlie Austin is their main man up front.
QPR, 1-0 winners over Sunderland last time out, a result that left them one point and two places above their weekend hosts, have a poor recent record against United losing 12 of their last 13 games.
Harry Redknapp’s only absentee for the game is Alejandro Faurlin while he can hand a debut to summer signing Sandro.
