It’s not often you get the chance to back United at 1.85 to win at home, but you can get that price with Paddy Power and Victor Chandler for them to beat arch rivals Chelsea on Sunday.

That looks a terrific punt – especially as they have started the season on fire and have an excellent record against the Stamford Bridge mob.

They won four of their five meetings last season, and have won five and drawn two of their last eight meetings at Old Trafford.

Sir Alex’s young guns have been scoring goals at will in a flying unbeaten start to the new campaign, and as well as playing some fantastic football have run themselves into the ground to close down the opposition and make it tough for any side to breach their midfield and defence.

That attitude and fitness is going to be a major plus in this game, as Chelsea’s squad is ageing and looking more vulnerable by the minute.

Ok, they are still a decent side, but they will be missing Michael Essien and possibly Drogma and the £50 million they spent on Torres has proved the worst buy ever.

Torres can’t score to save his life and doesn’t have the pace to threaten defences like he used to.

He is the complete opposite to Rooney, who is looking sharper and hungrier than ever and has bagged two hat-tricks already this season.

Wazza is like an unstoppable runaway train as far as goalscoring is concerned, and he will be relishing getting stuck into Terry and Co.

He is as short as even money (2) in places to score anytime during the 90 minutes, but Victor Chandler go a standout 2.38 and that price simply must be taken.

Bet365 are offering a free In-Play bet on the match, so I have been busy scouring the markets to try and take advantage of where they are top price.

To qualify all you have to do is simply place a pre-match bet on the game, then once the action starts place another bet on any In-Play market. If your first In-Play bet loses, Bet365 will refund this stake up to the value of your largest pre-match bet.

The Stoke firm are going top priced 10 about Ashley Young netting the opener, and that price looks huge considering that he is as short as 7 in places.

Young can score from distance, is a good finisher and should be fresh after being rested for Wednesday’s draw away to Benfica.

The advice is to take the 10 while it lasts.

Finally, I’m hoping plenty of you took my advice last week and backed United to beat Bolton 5-0 at the 41 on offer with Stan James.

I don’t think it will be quite as clear cut on Sunday, but still expect a comfortable victory for United and plenty of goals.

Split stakes on 3-0 at 19 with Paddy Power and 4-1 at 34 with Bet365 will hopefully produce another bumper payout.
