Investing in Manchester United to score the Leeds goal looks like an angle to exploit and I headed into the individual player markets looking for some value.

I’d be amazed if Paul Pogba isn’t unleashed at Elland Road after resting midweek. He’s looked fit and motivated to impress since returning from injury – yes, his contract is up soon. The French midfielder tore Leeds apart at Old Trafford earlier in the campaign, bagging four assists as their man-to-man style failed miserably to contain him. He will be a big threat driving from midfield in this one and the 4/5 with Sky Bet for him recording two or more shots is very fair considering he averages 2.7 shots per 90 minutes in his 830 minutes of action this season.

It’s also time for Harry Maguire to start stepping in upfield.

Incredibly, despite scoring six goals in his last 13 caps for England, he hasn’t scored for United in over a year. The signs are there that could be about to change, as he has registered three shots on target in his last three matches.

Now he faces a team that loves to take set pieces. Leeds have scored 11 Premier League goals from set pieces this season, excluding penalties. United’s run of 138 corners without scoring in the Premier League could be about to end. I will support Maguire to have a shot on target at 5/2 with Sky Bet and to score a header at 20/1.

SCORE PREDICTION: 1-3 | BETTING ANGLE: Paul Pogba will have two or more hits (4/5 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)

JONES KNOWS THE BEST BET: Paul Pogba will have two or more shots and Harry Maguire will have a shot on target against Leeds (11/2 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)

JONES KNOWS THE BEST BET: 1pt over Harry Maguire for scoring with a header (20/1 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)

What happens when one of the best defenses meets the worst? Probably a home win.

Bruno Lage’s side have conceded the fewest free play goals in the Premier League this season (10) – conceding just one in the last 12 league meetings. Meanwhile, Leicester have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 17 Premier League away games and have conceded 41 Premier League goals, 16 more than at this same stage last season.

Wolves also haven’t lost a game when scoring this season. So it’s a home win.

Wolves are a powerful side and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to find out that Leicester are most likely going to struggle to keep them away from set pieces. Whatever the Foxes try in terms of defensive setup, it keeps failing. Craig Dawson’s winner for West Ham last weekend means Leicester have conceded 14 Premier League goals from set pieces (excluding penalties) and 11 from corners this season.

The goalscoring odds at any time surrounding Max Kilman (10/1), Roman Saiss (13/2), Conor Coady (11/1) and Leander Dendoncker (13/2) are all worth a look, but I’m more focused on the shooting market surrounding Dendoncker as a confident game.

Joao Moutinho’s absence has also opened the door for Dendoncker to play in midfield and his strength is penetrating the box, picking up stray balls as evidenced by his goal against Tottenham. He’s had five shots on goal and six touches in the penalty area in his last three games, which sparked my interest in 11/8 with Sky Bet for him to have two shots on goal in this one.

SCORE PREDICTION: 1-0 | BETTING ANGLE: Leander Dendoncker will have two or more hits (11/8 with Sky Bet – Bet Here!)

Jones knows the best bets…

P+L for the season = +44
