No Berba concerns at United

The Manchester United against Wolves clash has been overshadowed by Gary Neville's decision to retire. He felt like he had become a 'passenger' in the United team and he has started to pick up injuries quite regularly.

He is without doubt one of United's best right-backs of all time and he is Sir Alex's idea of a modern day role model. He shunned the flashing lights of Manchester City centre and the standard modern day's football lifestyle.

He is a family man and a Manchester United fan through and through.  Sir Alex wants to keep him in the United family and he has a coaching role at the club if he wishes to take up the opportunity.

As for Man United, they are looking for a record 19th league title in May. They are 4/9 to beat Wolves in ninety minutes and the way they have been playing of late, the win looks a formality. Twice Wolves have been denied something out of the game at the death against United this season.

Man United are resolute enough to stage a comeback when they look beaten. They have not played mesmerising football this season and their defence has looked ropey at times but they are getting results.

Man United are 17/20 to win the second half and they tend to gain momentum as the game continues.  They are 8/1 to score three or more goals in the second half and Wolves tend to capitulate in the latter part of their matches.

They lost 1-0 to Bolton this week when the on-loan Daniel Sturridge scored a last minute goal. If they lose against United, it would be their fourth successive league loss in the row.  A match goal to be scored between the 76th minute to full time is as short as 6/4.

Rooney was immense midweek against Aston Villa when he scored a brace. He has been out of form this season and he has struggled in front of goal. He is too short for me at 4/5 to score anytime but he is 20/1 to score a hat-trick. One player who has almost been faultless when next to goal is Berbatov.

He has scored three hat-tricks (20/1) this season and his most recent was against Birmingham. Wolves are struggling at the foot of the table and there is definitely some value with that price. Berba tends to score all his goals at once, I would not back him to be an anytime scorer at 4/5, the 7/2 to score two or more is the more sensible option.

Man United have conceded in their last three matches and it would be no surprise to see Wolves grab a consolation goal at home.

The best bet of the day has to be United -1 goal at 13/10. Now Chelsea have bought Torres and Luiz, Sir Alex knows that United cannot afford to be slack and I think Wolves are on the wane. Over 2.5 goals is too short for me at 8/11 but you can expect a United rout at Molineux.
