Man Utd continue their hunt for a 20th league title and with Man City facing Arsenal at the Emirates straight after this match Man Utd have what looks a fairly straight forward opportunity to open up an eight points gap on their rivals. QPR pulled off a shock last week against Arsenal though, can they pull off an even bigger shock this week at Old Trafford? The ValueChecker wikis should provide the answers.
Nani is apparently closing in on a first team return after injury and if he makes the starting line up in this match it might be a good idea to consider bets that involve Man Utd scoring more goals than you would have predicted if Nani wasn’t playing.The Man Utd ValueChecker wikis show that Nani proved an important player for Man Utd in the 10/11 Premiership season, not only providing his team with 9 goals but also a huge 18 assists, expect the number of goals Man Utd score to go down whenever Nani doesn’t play for Man Utd. Nani’s scoring record wasn’t as impressive the previous season with just three goals but he set up 11 goals that season proving that Nani has a massive influence on Man Utd’s ability to score goals.
In the unlikely event that Dimitar Berbatov plays he would be an outstanding bet in the goalscorer markets according to the Man Utd ValueChecker wikis. In the 10/11 Premiership season Dimitar Berbatov scored 16 goals at home from 12 starts and 2 sub appearances, compare that to just 4 goals from 12 starts and 6 sub appearances away from home. Berbatov is clearly a player who thrives in front of his home support and if he is a surprise inclusion it’s time to back him to score anytime and probably first as well.
As for the QPR ValueChecker wikis, they show that Man Utd might just be a good bet to win this match to nil. Despite some great attacking play on their way to promotion in the 10/11 season, QPR were actually relatively poor in front of goal. They failed to score in 10 matches which was on par with many mid table sides and won by just a 1 goal margin in a further 13 matches. QPR’s struggles in front of goal in the Championship seemed to come more often than not away from home. In the 10/11 season 9 teams scored more away goals than QPR despite it being QPR than won the league. They failed to score in 7 of their away games and scored just 1 goal in a further 7 away league matches. Despite some improved striking options this term they still don’t score enough goals and Man Utd have a great chance of keeping a clean sheet in this match.
