The news of Sir Alex Ferguson stepping down has dominated the headlines this week, but before we move onto Manchester United’s game at Old Trafford I want to look at Aston Villa’s clash with Chelsea.

Paul Lambert has done a great job in getting his side back on track and successive league wins has lifted them to the magical 40-point mark. Gabby Agbonlahor’s late winner completed a fine afternoon for travelling Villa fans at Carrow Road and they return home for Chelsea next.

Chelsea have had a ton of games this season and they were in action on Wednesday against Spurs where they were held to a 2-2 draw. Spurs twice came from behind, yet it was the Blues that were the happier with the point as it leaves them in pole position for a top four finish.

Villa will still have nightmares about the earlier meeting between the clubs in a game that saw Chelsea score eight in an 8-0 triumph. Fernando Torres even got the scoring started that day and I was impressed with his link up play against Spurs during the week. His confidence in front of goal is still lacking though.

The last time Villa were at home they served up their own mauling when they tore Sunderland apart. They are playing with self-belief once more and they are capable of battling for a point on Saturday.

Sunday’s late kick-off will be Sir Alex Ferguson’s final home fixture of what has been a phenomenal era at the club. United were well below par in their last game here, but that won’t be the case this time around.

United have beaten Swansea twice in their three Premier League meetings and I’m expecting a third by the final whistle. Michael Laudrup’s side have been excellent this season and their style of play should make for an open game.

Robin van Persie is back to scoring ways and it would be fitting if United’s big summer signing got the scoring underway. He’s played a pivotal role in United’s season and six goals in five games shows his goal drought is well and truly over.

This should be a comfortable win to end the Ferguson era at Old Trafford and I like the 1.84 on BETDAQ for United in the HT/FT double result. In terms of a correct score I would have a bit on the 2-0 and 3-0 at 7.4 and 8.8 respectively.

Betting on BETDAQ – Alan’s Punts:
Aston Villa v Chelsea – Back the draw at 3.85
Man United v Swansea– Back the Man Utd HT/FT double result at 1.84
