O'Neil 79-1 to beat Man Utd and win the National!


Recommended Posts

Martin O'Neil's Aston Villa are 7-1 to beat Man Utd and namesake Jonjo O'Neil's fancied Butlers Cabin is 9-1 to win tomorrow's Grand National.

A £5 double would pay £400 if you're looking for a quirky double on the weekend's most compelling sporting events.

On Sunday two teams in poor form meet at Old Trafford and the stakes could not be higher for either side.

Between them they've leaked 16 goals during their last 3 league games and mustered just one victory.

Villa are fading out of contention for Champions league qualification having picked up just 1 point from their last 15 available and recent history between the 2 sides does not give Villa fans cause for optimism.

The point gained by Villa in their goalless draw against the champions earlier in the season was the first point taken from this fixture in the last 12 premiership games between the 2 sides, home or away. Less shamedly Villa have failed to register a victory versus Man Utd at Old Trafford since the Premiership began.

Things get worse for Villa when you consider Man Utd have won all of their games against sides occupying 5th-8th in the Premiership since 2006/7. Man Utd's record against sides this season that fulfill this profile is played 3 won 3, conceded 0 and all 3 games have been won HT/FT. Similarly, last season Man Utd won 5/8 to nil and 6/8 HT/FT.

Despite boasting the Premierships 3rd best away record Villa have failed to score and lost 3 of their last 4 games against top 4 sides and have failed to score in 9 of their last 13 league games against Man Utd.

Villa have failed to register a draw away from home this season so avoid putting an "X" on your weekly coupon.

However do not discount the impossible. Man Utd are missing Rooney, Scholes and Vidic through suspension and Berbatov is injured. Tevez played in Argentina's 6-1 humbling by Bolivia on Wednesday night so in what is likely to be a nervy encounter have a small punt on Villa to defy the stats and keep a clean sheet at Old Trafford which is a around 7-1 on Betfair.

Back to the Grand National and Villa fans that attended the game against CSKA a few weeks back may want to consider outsider Eurotrek ;-)
