Community Shield betting preview: Manchester United v Manchester City
It’s an all-Manchester Community Shield clash on Sunday as United take on City in the season’s traditional Wembley Stadium curtain-raiser.
Premier League champions United have won three of the last four Community Shield finals and could give debuts to summer signings like David de Gea and Phil Jones as they look to secure an early season victory over their cross-city rivals.
FA Cup holders City – who haven’t played in this fixture since 1973 – could also have new talent on show, including forward Sergio Aguero, as they look to prove that last season’s Cup success was no flash in the pan.
Bet365 make United the 13/10 favourites for the match, with City priced at 21/10. The draw is offered at 23/10. Carlos Tevez, Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney are 11/2 joint-favourites to open the scoring, with the same trio of players available at 7/4 to net at any time during the match.
