Have a Chicy bet on Hernandez

Manchester have a new poster boy and he goes by many nicknames but on his shirt he is called 'Chicharito'. The Mexican striker named Javier Hernandez has already impressed the Old Trafford faithful.

He has been more than an adequate replacement for Rooney and he has scored five goals in his last six appearances at the club.

He is Even money to score anytime and 4/1 to score the first goal. Rooney's ankle is a cause for concern at Old Trafford and he may be out for another month. Hernandez has an opportunity to shine and he could be United's next answer to Solskjaer.

When looking at the 90 minute market, it is difficult to make a judgement in terms of a punt. Both Arry and Sir Alex will have half an eye on the midweek Champions League match. Man Utd are 8/13 to win at home, the draw is 11/4 and Tottenham are 9/2.

Manchester United are unbeaten in the league but they have not set the season alight. Man Utd have an outstanding record against the North London club but I think Tottenham could get something out of the game.

An Achilles heel for Sir Alex is United's willingness to succumb under-pressure when ahead. Tottenham are 6/1 to come from behind and won or draw and with the likes of Van der Vaart and Bale in the side, they are more than capable of scoring goals. Without an in-form Rooney, Man Utd are more than capable of faltering against Tottenham.

Redknapp was rumoured to be considering resting Bale, he is 7/2 to score anytime but with a match of this significance he should start. It is almost twenty-one years since Spurs won at Old Trafford.

Spurs have to win without Defoe, Dawson, Corluka, Woodgate and O'Hara. However in terms of their squad, they have a ridiculous amount of talent regularly sitting on the bench even with injury problems.

Robbie Keane, Bentley, Bassong and Dos Santos are just some of the players desperate to get a game.

Berbatov started the season on fire and he looked every bit a £30 million plus player but he has not scored in five matches.

He will be desperate to end that drought against a club and fan base that once adored him. Berba is too short for me at 10/11 to score anytime and he may not play the full match with the Champions League clash taking place next week.

Tottenham can be backed at 11/4 draw no bet and I fancy both teams to score at 13/20, but there is little value in that bet. Man United have looked vulnerable all season in defence and Tottenham's backline are seriously restricted in numbers.

If you want to take advantage of our enhanced Saturday afternoon Match Winner, you can back Berba to score first and Man Utd to win at 6/1. Hernandez is the form player but Berba will want to impress against his old club.
