After an eventful week Manchester United face off against Swansea in the penultimate game of Sir Alex Ferguson’s tenure after 27 years in charge.
Unsurprisingly, the league champions go into this game as favourites with the best price on a Man United win available at 1/3 with Bet365, the draw can be backed at 19/4 with Bet Victor and a Swansea win is 11/1 at Stan James.
Sunday’s game will be Fergie’s 1499 game in charge and his 849th win looks all but nailed on. Swansea have only won twice since their League Cup victory against Bradford in February and, with a mid-table finish assured and top scorer Michu out injured, do not look as if they will threaten United’s superb home record.
Best Betting Promotion: If there is a goal in second half injury time, Paddy Power will refund any losing first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets.
United’s games at Old Trafford this season have seen on average 3.39 goals per game compared with a league average of only 2.76 and have scored 9 goals in their last 6 games there despite failing to score against Chelsea last weekend. It is worth noting that the only games Sir Alex’s side have failed to win at Old Trafford this season has come again Man City, Chelsea and Tottenham.
Swansea’s 3-2 victory at Wigan on Tuesday was the first time that Laudrup’s team have score in 4 games and halted a run of 7 games without a win. Swansea have never beaten United at Old Trafford and with injuries plaguing The Swan’s at this late point in the season it appears that backing the away win would be throwing money down the drain.
Of the 12 matches at home this season where United have been leading at half time they have gone on to win all 12. The Man United half time/full time is best price 20/23 with Bet Victor.
Robin Van Persie already has 25 goals in the Premier League this season and is best price 13/5 with Sky Bet to score 2 or more goals against Swansea.
All 3 meetings between the teams since Swansea’s promotion have seen less than 2.5 goals scored and under 2.5 goals is best price 31/20 with Bet Victor.
