Sharp Gomez should gobble up Gladbach

Bayern Munich v Borussia Monchengladbach

Mario Gomez has been in sparkling form since his return from injury and given Jupp Heynckes a real headache.

Mario Mandzukic had enjoyed an outstanding start to the season but has been upstaged by Gomez and it’ll be interesting to see if Heynckes is tempted to play them together against Monchengladbach.

That Bayern win is predictable enough – they are long odds-on for a reason. But for an interest take Gomez to score first. He’s sharp as ever and got some points to prove.

Recommendation
M Gomez first scorer

Man Utd v Burton

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • United have conceded in just one of five league games
Expert verdict
Holders Manchester United have started the season in excellent form and the title-chasing Red Devils should have little trouble overcoming poor-travelling Burton in the third round of the League Cup at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho fielded a strong team throughout last term’s competition, which saw his side oust Northampton, rivals Manchester City, West Ham, Hull and Southampton on their way to silverware. Burton have won just two of their last 12 league away games.
