A draw would be good enough for United at Leicester in the Super Sunday Match of the Day
The point would ensure we secure a top-four finish in what is sure to be an intriguing last day of the resumed season.
But I want us to finish with a flourish – and win handsomely, which is the United way, thus finishing third in the Premier League behind champs Liverpool, and runners-up City.
With the firepower of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and the fast-emerging talent of teenager Mason Greenwood, we are more than capable.
And with our defence no doubt run ragged by Foxes’ talisman Jamie Vardy, the odds-on favourite at Betfred for the Golden Boot, our marksmen will need to be up for it.
Rashford, Martial, Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes are all 5/1 with us to score first, with Vardy favourite at 7/2. How about Harry Maguire getting one back on his old mates? Well he’s 11/1 to score anytime at Betfred.
With Chelsea currently fourth entertaining surprise package Wolves, it will be fascinating to see how the drama unfolds this afternoon.
All indications are that United will be third and Chelsea fourth, but if Chelsea and Leicester both win then we’re down to fifth.
Lots to play for at the top then, but as for the bottom – well, the stakes are also very high indeed.
The Betfred odds indicate that it will be Watford and Bournemouth who will be playing in the Championship, with Villa escaping the drop. Latest odds on this topic, and associated markets – right here.
Whatever happens regarding the trap door I’m convinced Villa’s star man Jack Grealish will be off in the summer. Whether he ends up at Old Trafford will depend on the Paul Pogba situation and the fact is our priority now is the defence, as we are strong in the midfield area.
Turning to City and the complete mismatch at the Etihad. Well, it surely has to be a goal feast, with the Blues’ stars looking to catch Pep Guardiola’s eye ahead of the glamour Champions League last-16 second-leg tie against Real Madrid on August 7.
City to score five or more against the Canaries, which is my prediction, is 5/2 at Betfred. If you think the Blues will triumph 9-0 I’m making that a 200/1 special.
That would be a highly significant result as the nation’s top scorers will then have made it 106 goals for the season, matching the 2017-18 season record also held by, yes, you’ve guessed it, City!
