The latest Manchester United odds, with a Liverpool repeat this weekend priced at 80/1

With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side struggling and managerial rumours rife, Planet Sport gives you the lowdown on the Manchester United-related betting markets.

It's not the best of times to be a Manchester United fan but there's no reason for Red Devils die-hards to be wallowing when there are a host of United-related betting opportunities to take advantage of.

Yes, you've just been beaten 5-0 by your biggest rivals - and at home for good measure - but for anyone who saw it coming (and Paul Scholes was one of them) there was good money to be made from backing an emphatic Liverpool victory.

Could lightning strike twice? Well, a 5-0 defeat to a Tottenham side whose season is already one of extreme peaks and troughs, is priced up at 80/1 with Planet Sport Bet.

Still have faith in Ole? A United title win is 66/1, while the odds on Declan Rice moving to Old Trafford are 2/1.

Planet Sport takes you through these and other Manchester United-related bets on another headline-making week for the red half of the city.

Tottenham to beat Manchester United 5-0

Man Utd disappointment vs Liverpool Oct21

The battle of the Premier League's most pessimistic fans. No, we'll lose 5-0, no we will.

United's Reds capitulation overshadowed Spurs' 1-0 defeat to West Ham somewhat, but make no mistake, the defeat was felt just as keenly.

The Hammers now sit two points above their London rivals, while the blank means Harry Kane has scored just once in eight Premier League appearances this season - and that a half-hearted effort when even he thought he was offside against Newcastle.

There's little room for optimism when it comes to facing United, either, with just four goals for the striker from 15 appearances.

Tottenham have never beaten United 5-0 in their history but then Liverpool had never won 5-0 at Old Trafford either before Sunday.

Declan Rice to join Manchester United

With Paul Pogba likely to be on the move next summer, the Englishman looks the ideal replacement.

United have been interested in Rice since Jose Mourinho's time at the club and believe they hold a clear advantage over their rivals due to Rice's England links with a number of their squad.

The midfielder formed a successful partnership with former West Ham loanee Jesse Lingard last season, though doubts persist as to whether Lingard will still be at Old Trafford come 2022/23.

Much will depend on the identity of the man in the Old Trafford dugout, however, which brings us on to...

Zinedine Zidane to be the next Manchester United manager

Zinedine Zidane Real Madrid May21

Currently out of work and resting, the appointment would certainly be welcomed by the vast majority of United fans.

Zidane has won three consecutive Champions League finals, two La Liga titles, two Spanish Super Cups and two FIFA Club World Cups. He is not short on silverware.

What he is short on, is Premier League experience.

However, Zidane's love of Madrid would appear to be the most significant barrier to United attracting the former Real manager.

Paris Saint-Germain or France are the roles Zidane is biding his time for, with the national team role favoured as it would allow him to remain living in the Spanish capital.

The reservations explain Zidane's 10/1 quote and the short price about Antonio Conte. He boasts a CV to rival Zidane's and is currently without a club, while Brendan Rodgers heads the Premier League managers in with a shot of the job.

However, Conte is known to be reluctant to take jobs with the season already under way, while Rodgers' Liverpool past may make it hard for him to win over the United fans.

Manchester United to finish inside the Premier League top four

For all United's struggles, their ability to finish inside the Champions League places remains in little doubt.

Sitting three points outside the top four is nothing to worry about at this stage of the season but defeat to Tottenham on Saturday could see them slip as low as 12th come the end of the weekend's fixtures.

It's another one that depends on how you look at it.

An optimist would say this is a squad that contains Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Paul Pogba, David de Gea, Raphael Varane, Marcus RashfordLuke Shaw and Bruno Fernandes.

A pessimist would say it is also a team that saw Fred and Scott McTominay line up in the centre of midfield against Liverpool.

Cristiano Ronaldo to win the PFA Player of the Year award

This week it's Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, last week it was Steve Bruce, the week before it was Nuno Espirito Santo and before that it was Mikel Arteta.

The nature of the game means that for all the winners, there have to be losers and by virtue of their defeat to Liverpool, Solskjaer is the biggest managerial loser of them all at the moment.

Next week, should United beat Tottenham, it will be Nuno again.

Similarly, it goes for players. Mo Salah is the flavour of the month having taken his tally to ten with three goals at the weekend.

But it wasn't so long ago that Cristiano Ronaldo was hogging the headlines for his dramatic introduction to the Premier League.

Three goals in his first two games had the media raving and he has followed that up with a goal in each of his Champions League appearances.

The goals have dried up in the Premier League but whether it take a new manager, a new system or a new hairstyle, Ronaldo will be back scoring again before long.

Whether that will help him wrest the early initiative from Salah remains to be seen, but this is a player who doesn't like to be overshadowed.

Manchester United to win the FA Cup

United have not won the FA Cup since 2016, are trophyless since 2017 and have already seen the Premier League title disappear over the horizon.

Twelve-time winners of the competition, they held the FA Cup aloft just once since 2004, while Arsenal have won it five times in the same period.

That they have to target a trophy the club has often treated as an inconvenience shows just how far they have fallen since the days of Sir Alex.

Nevertheless, they fit neatly into the won't go down, won't win the league, will play a pretty strong side category of recent winners, Leicester City proving a good example last term.

United's defeat to West Ham in the Carabao Cup demonstrates what happens should they face a decent side early on. But with their Champions League interest not guaranteed to last into 2022, let alone the latter stages, it could be a chance for the Ole to redeem his season, or a new man to make their mark.

Manchester United to be relegated

Of course, it could all go horribly wrong. Should United persevere with Solskjaer through a tough run of fixtures that sees Tottenham, Man City, Chelsea and Arsenal sandwiching a clash with Watford, the rot could already have set in.

Ole is cast aside but with player disharmony rife, the new man struggles to impose his will and the slide continues.

Survival rests on a visit to Crystal Palace on May 22 but with time running out a Wilfried Zaha backheel condemns United to the drop.

On the plus side, United start the 2022/23 season as favourites to win the Championship.
