United looking to increase advantage over City

Updated: April 2, 2012

Manchester United have the opportunity to open up a five-point gap in the title race when they travel to Ewood Park to face a Blackburn side desperate to boost their survival hopes.

United were left very much on the back foot in their battle with Manchester City when they suffered a surprise 3-2 loss to Steve Kean’s men at Old Trafford on New Year’s Eve, but they have climbed to the top of the table in recent weeks and are now firm favourites to become league champions for a 20th time. With the experience of Sir Alex Ferguson and his oldest pupils, Scholes and Giggs, a win tonight surely puts them in an unassailable position at the top of the table.

2BET2 offers you the odds with United at 7/18 and Blackburn with 7 points from their last 3 games at 7/1.
