Man United vs Blackpool – No relegation favours from Fergie
Neutrals up and down the country will be cheering on Blackpool in this relegation fight, especially as they travel to Old Trafford, but the noise will not be enough to keep them up.
Blackpool could lose and still stay up if other results go their way, but Ian Holloway will be hoping that his side can repeat West Ham’s final day victory in 2007 which kept the Hammers up.
We’re unsure what sort of side Sir Alex Ferguson is likely to field but we can be pretty sure that the Blackpool attack will have to beat Edwin van der Sar in his final appearance at Old Trafford.
Many believe, and rightly so, that Manchester United offer incredible value at 8/15 to win on Sunday, but this game takes on a cup final mentality for Blackpool and they are 9/2 to win.
The Tangerines haven’t won at Old Trafford since 1962 and the best the Blackpool fans can hope for is salvaging a point, the draw is 10/3, which may be good enough to stay up.
Only two players have ever scored at Old Trafford on the final day of the season (Carlos Tevez and Les Ferdinand) and Blackpool will have a tough time breaking down a defence that has conceded just 10 goals at home this season.
Manchester United are 13/8 to keep a clean sheet and 2/1 to win to nil.
Dimitar Berbatov is gunning for the golden boot and looks certain to start on Sunday – the Belgian is 4/1 to score the opener, 1/1 to score at any time and 4/5 to land the golden boot.
