Robin van Persie: Has been a revelation for United

It has become a feature of recent championships that bookmakers call the outcome before it actually happens, although Betfred came a cropper last season when they paid out on Manchester United, only for Manchester City to overhaul their rivals over the final six games.

Paddy Power have decided it will not happen, paying out ahead of United's meeting with Everton following Manchester City's defeat by Southampton on Saturday night.

United went on to beat David Moyes' Toffees at Old Trafford to open up a 12-point lead at the top of the table.

Ryan Giggs and Robin van Persie found the net for the Red Devils.

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
