With Manchester City slipping up against Sunderland, Monday night’s visit to Blackburn offers a great opportunity for Manchester United to stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League.
However, Blackburn haven’t proved the easiest of opponents for United in recent years, highlighted by a 3-2 win for Steve Kean’s side at Old Trafford earlier this season.
That loss was part of winter slump that saw the champions lose three in a row but since that run United have taken 28 points from 30 and scored at least twice in nine out of ten of those games.
Five of those goals have come from Mexican Javier Hernandez and while Chicharito may not have hit the heights of his debut season and has often started on the bench, he has been on-hand with some crucial late strikes including winners against Everton, Swansea and Stoke.
Nine of his ten in the league have been last goals and it’s 7/2 for Hernandez to have the final say at Ewood Park so new customers using the £25 free bet they receive when registering with bwin would win £112.50 if he does.
Another United striker who’s been restricted to a back-up role will strike fear into Rovers defenders should he get on the field, as Dimitar Berbatov has seven goals from the last three games between these sides.
Nine of his ten in the league have been last goals and it’s 7/2 for Hernandez to have the final say at Ewood Park.
It’s 4/1 for the Bulgarian to come on and score last again, with the duo likely to start ahead of him, Danny Welbeck and Wayne Rooney, priced 6/5 and 7/10 respectively to score anytime.
Blackburn have been no slouches themselves in the goalscoring department with only the top six on target more often than Rovers this season.
Yakubu has been at the heart of Kean’s side’s success in front of goal with 15 goals since joining in September including two goals at Old Trafford.
That double included the opener and you can back the Yak to open the scoring again here at attractive-looking odds of 8/1.
