Manchester United-Swansea Betting Preview: United to put on a show in final home game for Fergie

Sunday sees the iconic Scot take charge of the Red Devils for the final time at Old Trafford our tipster is backing the hosts to win it in style with a 2/1 value bet
This week Sir Alex Ferguson announced that he would be retiring at the end of the season. After 26 years, the Scot will step aside and move to be on the board of directors. In his final Premier League at home, his team welcome the Capital One Cup Champions Swansea City to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon which is bound to be an emotional day.

Swansea come into this match with only five away wins all season. Furthermore, the Swans have only one win in their last eight away from the Liberty Stadium, with half of those games being losses.

Michael Laudrup’s men did win on their travels last time out, beating Wigan Athletic midweek 3-2. Unsurprisingly, though, Laudrup’s team at underdogs at 21/2 (11.50) with BetVictor to go against the script and win at Old Trafford.

Since winning the Premier League against Aston Villa last month, Manchester United are yet to record a win. They drew away to Arsenal in a lacklustre performance, then lost at home to Chelsea with a late goal.

You can be assured though that the squad will want to put on a show for Sir Alex Ferguson’s last match though, with his side a short 2/7 (1.29) with BetVictor to win. The same firm price the draw at 19/4 (5.75).

Despite scoring three goals midweek some Sunday league-level defending, Swansea have struggled to score on the road.

Laudrup’s men have failed to hit the net in five of their last eight on the road. Add that to a fact that United have kept a clean sheet in four of their last six home matches, both teams to score ‘No’ at 9/10 (1.90) with BetVictor seems like a fantastic price.

For those looking for more value, the handicap market is worth betting on. With Sir Alex Ferguson wanting to go out on a high, expect the players to dig deep and put on a performance in front of the home crowd, with Man United -2 handicap 2/1 (3.00) with BetVictor certainly worth investing in.
