Manchester United are already reaping the rewards of Harry Kane’s injury according to Ladbrokes.
The Reds have seen their odds of finishing inside the Top 4 this season cut to 2/1 (from 9/4), while Tottenham’s odds have drifted out a touch to 1/5 (from 1/6).
Since Ole Gunnar Solskjær took over at the Red Devils, they’ve won all 6 games, with their last victory coming against Top 4 rivals Tottenham.
This form has taken them into 6th, 6 points behind Chelsea in 4th with Arsenal sandwiched between the two teams.
Spurs will be without Kane for at least a month with ligament damage whilst Son Heung-min is away on international duty. Whilst continuing to keep up with the pace of the Premier League, they also have a Carabao second leg tie against Chelsea on Thursday to focus on.
They’ll be hoping that even with some important player they can keep up their good league position with games against Fulham, Crystal Palace and Watford to come.
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “With the team flying again under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, punters clearly think United will be the big beneficiaries while Kane is injured and Son is competing in the Asian Cup.”
