Where To Put Your Money vs Villa

United will be desperate to correct their midweek slip-up at Wigan when they host struggling Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Sunday and they are long odds-on at a best of 1.25 with Betfred and Paddy Power to get back to winning ways.

The Premier League leaders suffered a shock 1-0 defeat at the DW Stadium, allowing second-placed City to cut their lead to five points with five games to play.

They now find themselves under unexpected pressure, but this represents a golden opportunity for they look to widen the gap once more.

Sir Alex Ferguson side, who had stormed to eight consecutive wins ahead of Wednesday’s upset, have only lost twice at Old Trafford this season and have not dropped a point there since New Year’s Eve.

They have also conceded just one goal in that period, and Alex McLeish’s men are currently 15th in the table and six points clear of safety but have won just one of their last 10 league encounters.

The Midlanders were held 1-1 at home to Stoke on Easter Monday and have only won on one of their last 26 visits to Old Trafford.

That’s grim reading for their fans, especially as the  Red Devils have scored three or more in six of their last eight PL games at home against the Villans.

They have also won every won all nine Premier League games that Paul Scholes has started this season, and the evergreen midfielder is expected to feature again after being rested in their midweek defeat.

It really should be a case of how many United win by, and I expect them to put two or three past Villa without reply.

A 2-0 scoreline is a 6.5 shot with Betfred, while 3-0 can be backed at 7.5 with the same firm and Paddy Power.

Asheley Young looks a bit of value to net the opener at 7.5 with bet365, and is a big looking 2.63 with Boylesports and Betfred to net anytime.

    I was wondering what that Chelsea fan is saying to Beckham.

    Maybe Arry or mankini knows.

  22. James21 says:

    Damn Getting my threads mixed up. Just posted part of above comment on the right thread FAO MG.

  23. UnitedThoughts1 says:

    Young behind Rooney for me:

    Rafa Rio Evans Evra
    Scholes Carrick
    Valencia Rooney Nani

    Early breakthrough and off we go! Start the game with pace and get into them
    Attack! Attack! Attack!

  24. Redbilly says:

    I hope this still applies: Aston vanilla, anyone can lick em :-) fingers crossed

  25. i love manchester united says:

    god how i wish our team had tevez and ronaldo in it again.

  26. JC says:

    Loved (and still do) CR7 but you’re surely having a laugh about cunTevez, if not it’s time to put the pipe down pal.

  27. mancdub says:

    United to win both halves 6/4 with Paddy Power. The only sensible bet out there. It’s not worked out a couple of times lately though. Wigan and Blackburn. But generally I do ok with it.
    Stay away from the bookies kids. It an extremely expensive hobby. Stick to drugs. It’s cheaper :)

  28. JacquesTheRed says:

    In a way I am happy at the poor performances we have been putting in lately. Our manager, great as he may be, is not always right. Does anyone really think that Welbeck is better than Berba?

  29. Manutdheartattack says:

    The constant chopping and cutting is what has got us this year. Some of it is explained by injuries, but. Decisions like not even having scholes as a sub makes you scratch your head. Same to why Rafael was out. Sometimes just leaving a winning combo alone is what we need

  30. Barracuda says:

    The villa game could be a tricky one. Lets hope Mcleish goes for a defensive tactic rather than a high tempo pressing game, which clearly we have no answer to.

    2 – 0 welbeck and nani scoring

  31. bobkoh says:

    Truly squeaky bum time for me as I’ve been traumatised by the Wigan result. It was a collective downgrade in performance. Rooney could have kept up with Shaun Maloney to prevent him taking that shot. If Roo scores on Sunday, all is forgiven though. Come on, the Red Devils!

  32. Albert Ross says:

    3 points required.

    No potential cash windfall from any bet I could place has more importance than the 3 points.

    Come on United, bring it home!

  33. Albert Ross says:

    Well done lads!
