It turns out that Cristiano Ronalo‘s late and brilliant run at Craven Cottage, which was capped with a crucial winning goal, is just one of the two occasions we’ve won in London during our past ten visits.
United head to Upton Park with the odds against us then, particularly when considering our recent results away to West Ham in particular. We lost 2-1 last season, despite going a goal up and being awarded a penalty that should have made it 2-0 to us, and the season before that we lost 1-0 courtesy of a Reo-Coker goal.
Ferguson isn’t worried about playing anyone at the moment, but are you?
“With the form of the team as it is I would be prepared to take them anywhere at the moment,” said Ferguson. “I was not aware of the record. It happens. We have had good runs down there in the past. But it doesn’t concern me. We are in good form so why should we not want to play anyone?”
If you fancy our chances to win, put your free £10 bet on a United win and collect over £16. If you reckon it’ll be another 1-0 win for United, your free £10 bet would earn you £70. If you think we’ll see a repeat of last year’s 2-1 scoreline, although this time United walking away with the three points, your free £10 bet would win you £90.
Your free £10 bet would also see a return for £50 for betting Ronaldo first scorer, £55 for Tevez, and £60 for Berbatov.
