Aguero 11/2 To Open Up

The Daily Star’s Chief Football writer, Danny Fullbrook, thinks City will beat United 2-0 (10/1, Coral) and Peterborough can draw.


Man City v Man United, Sun 8th Jan, 13.00, ITV1
Then armchair fans can settle down for the stand out game of the weekend in terms of headlines – Man City v Man Utd.

It is just about the last opponents that Sir Alex Ferguson would want to face at the moment after losing two games on the bounce (a third loss is 11/10 at Paddy Power). It means both managers have to think seriously about the strength of teams that they put out for this game so I think both will be very mixed and City will be missing the Toure brothers anyway.

But City’s reserves are stronger than United’s and it is for that reason alone that I go for a home win (11/10, Paddy Power) with Aguero scoring first, 11/2 courtesy of Betfred, in a 2-0 home win (10/1, Coral) which will shatter Fergie’s team.

Peterborough v Sunderland, Sun 8th Jan, 15.30, ITV1
Later on Sunday afternoon it is Fergie junior who takes centre stage at London Road with Peterborough when they take on Sunderland.

Darren Ferguson’s team are a good side and I think that Martin O’Neill will rest a few players and therefore their could be an upset – a home win is big at 3/1 (bet365).

But for me I don’t think it will go much further than a draw, 11/4 at . I fancy Sunderland first half and then a draw in the second, a 14/1 chance (Boylesports), with a 1-1 scoreline, 13/2 at Skybet.

Arsenal v Leeds, Mon 9th Jan, 19.45, ESPN
Finally the FA Cup stretches to Monday night when Leeds will play Arsenal for the second time in two years.

Again this all rests on what type of team Arsene Wenger puts out. A lot of his former reserves are now in the first team so if he makes changes his side will not be as strong as in the past.

But watching Thierry Henry return to the club will be amazing and worth the entry ticket alone.

Leeds could quite easily get a draw from this game, a sizey 5/1 (Boylesports), but that is the most they could hope for and a 0-0 (22/1, ) or 1-1 (11/1, Ladbrokes) is the most likely, but maybe the script is written for Henry and you could back him to score in a 2-1 Arsenal home win which is my favourite result. The correct score is 9/1 with Blue Square while Totesport make Henry 9/2 to open the scoring.
