The Red Devils may decide to stick an extra defensive body in that area of the field in order to try and quell the threat; however, the prices on Hazard and Oscar to score look very appealing.The Belgian international is 4/1 to score at any time, while Oscar has been very well backed with Bet365 around the 7/2 mark.last_img
