Tottenham have their best chance to beat Manchester United, but they won’t



Manchester United play host to Spurs (5.40pm KO, Live on ESPN) and everything suggest that they are bankers at at 1.57 with bet365 and Betfred to secure another three points.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s side have a terrific record against the Londoners and come into the game unbeaten in their last 6 matches in all competitions despite not playing at their best.

They have won 17 and lost none of their last 22 Premier League games against Tottenham, and the Lilywhites have managed to score eight goals in 20 Premier League visits to Old Trafford.

Wayne Rooney, who had a run out against Newcastle in their capital One Cup win in midweek, has scored seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances against Spurs and five in the last five.

That makes him of obvious interest in the first goalscorer market at 5.5 with Boylesports, but Robin van Persie who was rested in midweek and has made a great start to his career as a United player looks even better value.

The Dutchman has scored five goals in his last six Premier League home games against Spurs, and the 5 on offer with Paddy Power abut him bagging the opener looks a massive price. The advice is to snap it up!

United to win 3-1 is my idea of the outcome and that is a 12 shot with bet365.

Over 2.5 goals also looks a gimme at 1.67 with Betfred and Paddy Power given that both sides like to play free-flowing attacking football.
