He wants to be a big-time Charlie

All may not be well at Blackpool at the moment. Their Premier League honeymoon period could be over. I do not think they are certainties for relegation (5/2) but their captain and best player Charlie Adam has his sight set on a move to Liverpool.

Adam put in an outstanding display against Sunderland at the weekend but if he starts the game, it looks likely to be his last in a Blackpool shirt. Holloway is infuriated with Dalglish and the way he has conducted himself in this drawn out saga.

Liverpool's offer of £4 million is derogatory and if Bent can move to Villa for £18 million, he is worth every penny.  Holloway looks like the stress of the Premier League could be getting to him. His outbursts have become more absurd and he is regularly verbally attacking his fellow managers.

Blackpool are 7/1 to spring a surprise and get three points at home and they will not roll-over. The draw is 7/2 and the Man Utd win is 2/5. The outcome of the game depends on whether Adam starts for the Tangerines. He should play and he looks like a player that will always give his all!

He is a big price to score anytime at 5/1 but the player who has really impressed me this season is D.J. Campbell.  He is a journey-man football player that seems to have found himself at Blackpool. He is good enough to play at this level and he is 11/4 to score anytime.

Blackpool may have made a superb start to life in the top flight but I can see Man Utd landing the three points on Tuesday. However, it may take them some time to break Blackpool down and the Draw/Man Utd double result at 10/3, holds some appeal.

If you fancy Blackpool to get something out of the game, then you can back them with the draw in the double chance market at 15/8. A point at home to United, would be an excellent result for Holloway's lads.

Man Utd will be looking for Berbatov to inspire them to a win. This season, Berbatov has started to justify his hefty transfer fee. He has bagged a lot of criticism in the past but Sir Alex has stuck by him and he is arguably a far greater danger than Rooney.

He regularly seems to find the back of the net and he is 16/1 to hit another hat-trick and just 8/11 to score anytime.  Rooney does not look like he can hit the dizzy heights he has reached on previous campaigns and I would not back him to score anytime at 8/11. The value lies with Berbatov.

If you think Man Utd are going to take Blackpool apart,  Man Utd -1 goal is 19/20 and they have the players to put that market to bed in the first half. Man Utd are 10/11 to score in both halves but a bet that appeals to me more is both teams to score at 8/11.

For the Premier League romantics, the Blackpool ninety minute win is 7/1 but realistically Man Utd have to be an away from home Tuesday banker.
