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.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
