Torres 25-1 for Golden Boot

FERNANDO TORRES was back among the goals at Sunderland on Saturday and the Chelsea forward can now be backed at 25-1 with bet365 and Betfred to win the Premier League’s Golden Boot this season.

Torres still has a long way to go - he is only on four for the league campaign - but the fact he took (and scored) a penalty at the Stadium of Light suggests the Spaniard is beginning to find his confidence under new boss Rafael Benitez.

Hills make Torres 7-1 to score at least 21 league goals and 7-2 to notch no more than six, while bet365 have the former Liverpool and Atletico Madrid at evens to reach a 14-goal tally for the season.

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.
