Former Gunner enrages fans by backing Man Utd to win the title

| 25.03.2011

Tony Adams has risked the wrath of Arsenal fans up and down the country by backing Manchester United to win their 12th Premier League title.

Manchester United are currently the strong favourites to win the Premier League title at 4/7 but with a trip to the Emirates followed by the visit of Chelsea to Old Trafford, many believe Sir Alex Ferguson’s side can be overhauled at the top of the league.

“My heart says the Arsenal but my head says United, they’ve just got too many players who’ve won it before,” said Adams.

“When you have done it and you’ve crossed the line, you know when to peak and when not to peak and when to win games.”

Arsenal are currently 11/4 in the Premier League betting and with no European or domestic cup competitions left to play for, the Arsenal squad should be fully focused on a title charge.

The Gunners are five points behind Manchester United but hold a game in hand on their rivals, and with a mouth-watering tie between the two scheduled for May 1st, we could have a potential title-decider on our hands.

One factor that may have influenced Adams to rule his heart with his head could be the fact that Arsenal’s game in hand is a trip to White Hart Lane, and with Tottenham Hotspur chasing fourth spot for the second time in two years, it could become the game of the season.

Sir Alex Ferguson knows his side still have plenty of work to do if they are to claim the league title, and with ties against Chelsea in the Champions League and Man City in the FA Cup the distractions are there for Manchester United.

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