Fergie may say he’s satisfied with one, but really he wants all three

| 30.03.2011

It would be the greatest achievement of Sir Alex Ferguson’s career were he to win the treble with this current crop of players.

Manchester United fans up and down the country will agree that watching the likes of Jonny Evans, Wes Brown, Darron Gibson, Michael Carrick and Darren Fletcher has been infuriating this season, but despite their supposed inability, Manchester United continue to challenge on three fronts.

Ferguson may have suggested he will consider the season a success if Manchester United lift just one trophy, but while they challenge on three fronts you can guarantee he will want all three.

The Premier League seems the most likely of the three given Manchester United’s odds of 4/7 to win it, but Manchester United are also favoured to lift the FA Cup at 1/1 and they are fourth favourites to lift the Champions League trophy at 6/1.

Should they negotiate their way past Manchester City in the semi-final of the FA Cup, Manchester United would be odds-on favourites to lift the FA Cup and should they beat Chelsea in the Champions League, they would play either Inter Milan or Schalke for a place in the final.

Ladbrokes are offering 16/1 that Manchester United win the Premier League/FA Cup/Champions League treble, while a domestic double is available at 2/1.

A Premier League and Champions League double is priced up at 7/1 and should Manchester United blow their great chance of winning the Premier League, they are 9/1 to win the FA Cup and Champions League double.

Manchester United travel to West Ham on Saturday after a break of 11 days since their last Premier League fixture, and Ferguson will be making sure there is no rustiness running throughout his side as they look to justify their 4/6 favouritism.

A £20 stake on Manchester United winning the treble would return £340. New customers can sign up here to get £60 in free bets.
