Aldo back for another bet
Liverpool goal scoring great John Aldridge is not used to throwing his support behind Manchester United – but he fancies Jose Mourinho’s men to get a win against Chelsea on Sunday.
Aldo is raising money for Dublin's Temple Street Children's hospital in his weekly sundayworld.com bet and he is turning his attention to United's showdown with Chelsea at Old Trafford this week.
"I really fancy United to get the win against Chelsea," he tells us.
"The two defeats Chelsea have inflicted on United this season will have hurt, especially for Mourinho as he must be so annoyed to see that team that stopped playing for him last season running away with the title.
"So I reckon United will be well up for this game on Sunday and it wouldn't surprise me if they find a way to get the win against a Chelsea team who will probably be more than happy with a point as they close in on the title.
"Chelsea have proved to be the masters of grinding out a win, but they rely on Diego Costa and Eden Hazard too much and that will trip them up occasionally.
"So while it pains me to do so, I'm backing Manchester United to beat them on Sunday."
Here is Aldo's latest best, in association with Paddy Power:
€50 on Manchester United to beat Chelsea and both teams to score (potential returns €275.00)
