Punters Not Backing Man Utd Ahead Of Spanish Trip To Villarreal

Villarreal are being backed to compound Manchester United’s misery in the Champions League ahead of their crucial Group F clash on Tuesday.

Michael Carrick will be in the dugout for the Red Devils who sit on top of the group on seven points alongside Tuesday’s opponents, but it’s the hosts who have been backed into 15/8 from 11/5 for the win since the 4-1 defeat at Watford that triggered the sacking of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

BoyleSports Football Ambassador Natalie Sawyer also expects United to find it difficult to bounce back in Spain.

“It’s been a long time coming unfortunately for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer,” she said.

“He has his legendary status and you do feel some sympathy towards him, but it just needed a change. Whether Michael Carrick is the right change remains to be seen and this isn’t going to be easy.

“The players should have stepped up a long time ago. We saw Bruno Fernandes asking the fans to blame the players after the Watford match, but where was that a few games ago?

“They needed to step up before if they wanted to save Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job and they can’t just rely on Cristiano Ronaldo like they have done.

“Villarreal would have been scratching their heads after coming away from Old Trafford with nothing and as much as you may look for a new manager bounce, it’s going to be tricky for Manchester United.

“Villarreal have already had draws with Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid this season, so a draw would be a good result for United.”
