Although 13 is considered as unlucky for some, that is certainly not the case for Manchester United and after getting the better of Crystal Palace at the weekend, Erik ten’s Hag men have wracked up that many home wins in succession.

A record that has stretched across all competitions and with progress to the EFL Cup final also being secured in the same week, the 2-1 win over the Eagles could almost be considered as the ideal exclamation point.

Almost but not quite and with Casemiro being sent off for the chokehold he applied on Will Hughes, the Brazilian midfielder will now be ruled out for the quickfire double header with Leeds and the subsequent clash with Leicester.

Victory that came at a cost for the Red Devils and their upcoming opponents know all about applying a personal cost of their own. One that now former manager Jesse Marsch has had to pay the ultimate price for.

With a run of seven league outings without a win, the hierarchy at Elland Road were getting more jittery by the week. Add Everton’s installation of Sean Dyche as manager – one that has already born fruit and those same Yorkshire jitters would soon become a pull of the trigger.

One that will only be justified if Marsch’s successor manages to step in and keep Leeds above water at the end of the season. If a change in personnel pulls off another great escape in the same vein as 12 months, then the decision is a smart one.

Then again, if the next firefighter fails to put out the flames, one will wonder if the timing of the sacking was the act that ultimately proved costly. Have the club waited too long to call football’s emergency service?

For now, it is simply a set of caretakers that will take this ailing team to Old Trafford, and they will have to hope for some form of bounce to go with it. At the same time, they must make sure that too heavy a defeat does not drop them into the bottom three.

Something that could be easier said than done when you consider the Red Devils’ current swagger at home and with their attacking talents primed and ready to go, do not be surprised if home win number 14 is soon around the corner.

With that in mind, our latest bet builder is now up for grabs, and it looks like this:

Manchester United to win

Marcus Rashford to score two or more goals

We've combined three picks into a builder bet

For my latest bet builder offering, the spotlight is being shown on Marcus Rashford and after scoring against Crystal Palace at the weekend, I am backing him to double those efforts in midweek.

A brace of goals that should lead Erik ten Hag’s men to victory and with Leeds embarking on a new era, I have marked them down for a consolation goal at the same time. Time to add these three components together and this construction is priced at 10/1.
