TOFFEES FAVOURITE TO STICK ONE PAST UNITED FIRST
With Manchester United setting a new record of eleven Premier League games in a row without conceding a goal, bookies Paddy Power are asking who will be the first to breach the toughest defence in the division.
United’s next opponents, Everton on Saturday, have the first bite of the cherry and are Evens to be the first team to bag a goal in over 1032 minutes against the champions.
The Toffees are followed in the fixture list by a visit to West Ham’s Upton Park. So often a bogey ground for United, West Ham have won the last two matches at The Boleyn Ground and are 2/1 to be the first team to breach United’s defence. Fulham follow at 7/1 whilst United’s next match against one of their Big Four rivals, Liverpool on March 14th, is 14/1.
Its 12/1 that all of United’s opponents will have been made to look like fools come April 1st with United still not having conceded a league goal by that time.
At the moment it’s hard to see anyone putting one past United’s Nemanja Vidic inspired defence but football is football and so often goals come when you least expect it.

2/1 West Ham a
