United Red Hot Favourites To Win First Trophy Of The Year

The line-up for the EFL Cup final is known and William Hill make Manchester United the 2/5 favourites to lift the trophy with Southampton 15/8. The Red Devils are 5/6 to win in 90 minutes with Southampton 3/1 to do so.


Manchester United are still fighting on four fronts and are 500/1 to win the “quad” this season and 7/1 to do the EFL Cup and FA Cup double.


“After a slow start, Manchester United are hitting gear and looking ominously like the side of old. It will take a lot from Southampton to stop them from picking up the first trophy of the Mourinho era,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.
