It hasn't taken long for Anthony Martial to make his mark in the Premier League. Will he finish as Man United's top goalscorer? How about we dissect the lines to see what oddsmakers think?

Anthony Martial (+2250 to finish as EPL's top scorer)
Only 19-years-old, Martial hasn't looked afraid of the moment whatsoever since joining up with Manchester United. He's already found the back of the net three times in domestic action, which is a team-high alongside midfielder Juan Mata. Louis van Gaal is sure to keep giving the French youngster plenty of chances to prove his worth, which is why he's at the top of the pile when it comes to the Red Devils' top scorer props on the soccer betting odds board.


Wayne Rooney (+5000)
Injuries have prevented Rooney from finding his top form, but he recently returned to the squad and was able to notch his first league goal of the campaign. Since he's always had a knack for goals, Rooney is going to get his, but he's not the odds-on favorite to lead United in that regard this season, not with the likes of Martial and Memphis Depay in the fold now. Still, you could do far worse than a small wager on Rooney at these kind of odds.


Memphis Depay (+10000)
After scoring 22 league goals for PSV last season, Depay decided to join the ranks of United to link up with van Gaal, with the two familiar with one another from the national team. The 21-year-old clearly has an immense amount of talent and his time will come, but as of now he finds himself behind both Martial and Rooney on the list.


Juan Mata (+15000)
Last but not least we have Mata, who already has three goals to his name this season. A creative attacking midfielder who has eye for goal, it's highly unlikely he'll lead the Red Devils in goals this season, and the lines confirm as much. That's not to take away from what's been a very effective start from the former Chelsea star, however.
