Aston Villa's twin strikers Kevin Phillips and Juan Pablo Angel have a variety of reasons for fancying themselves to score at Old Trafford tomorrow.
In Angel's case, it is because he has yet to hit the target for Villa against Manchester United in ten attempts.
In Phillips' case, it is because he has so frequently found the net at Old Trafford and is in confident mood after extending his pre-season form into last week's campaign opener against Bolton Wanderers.
But it's also a fair bet to suggest that no forward would ever turn up the chance of a goal in a week when their club has been linked with a move for another striker.
In Villa's case, after two months of speculation that they are about to sign Liverpool's Milan Baros, talk has turned to Juventus striker Fabrizio Miccoli.
Villa are reported to be in competition with Portuguese giants Benfica to provide a new home for the unwanted Miccoli who played at Fiorentina last season after joining them in a deal which ended up with his rights being coowned by Juve and La Viola.
Juve general director Luciano Moggi said: "We need to sell a striker and that would be Miccoli. In a couple of days' time, we will know whether he will go to Benfica or Aston Villa."
Miccoli's permanent departure from Juve was all but sealed last summer when he criticised them for choosing to retain the servies of the great, but ageing, Alessandro Del Piero rather than his own.
But, even if the 26-year-old Italian international were to stay in Turin, he would struggle to break into the starting line-up, given that Del Piero, David Trezeguet, Marcelo Zalayeta and Adrian Mutu are ahead of him in the Stadio Delle Alpi pecking order.
Of more immediate concern to Villa is tomorrow's match at Old Trafford, where they have not won in 22 years and have managed only one draw on their last eight visits.
Manager David O'Leary, whose side have leaked seven goals in his two matches there as Villa boss, expects it to be as tough as ever but at least his two front men are in confident mood.
"I don't want to put any extra pressure on myself but my goal-scoring record is pretty good at Old Trafford," Phillips said.
"It's always a big game when you play at Old Trafford and it will be a totally different game from Bolton, because they let you play.
"My first game, from a personal point of view, couldn't have gone any better but, hopefully, as a team, we can build on the positives from Saturday and go into the game having learned from it."
Angel firmly believes he has to break his United duck sooner or later on the ground where he made his Villa debut in a 2-0 defeat in January 2001.
"The run has to end some time," he said. "You never know what's going to happen. I just have to have the chance. I haven't had that many chances before against Manchester United, if I'm honest.
"Every year is different and I hope to break it this year and score against them. But the most important thing for me to do is to help the team out, work hard for the team and hopefully get success all together.
"I saw pretty much the whole game of their win at Everton last weekend and they look very strong.
"It's one of the games that will test you. It is going to be very difficult, because they are really going to be up for it this year."
