Is a repeat of 1999 on the cards for Manchester United?

As we enter the business end of the season, Sir Alex Ferguson’s Manchester United are in the same position as always – right in the thick of it. Ahead of their Champions League last 16 second leg match against Marseille, Man United are still in three competitions and thus the treble is still well and truly on.

Manchester United currently sit top of the Premier League table, three points ahead of Arsenal but having played a game more. United’s recent form in the league will concern Fergie slightly, but they are still odds on to win the Premiership at 4/6.

Man United are also favourites to win the FA Cup and with bet365 you can currently get odds of 11/10 on the Red Devils lifting the trophy at Wembley. They face City in a Manchester derby in the semi-final next month, which will all but decide the destination of the silverware.

Then there’s the Champions League. United are expected to overcome Marseille easily enough tonight, but things will start to get tougher from the quarter finals onwards. Barcelona are clearly the team to beat and Chelsea and Real Madrid are both ahead of Man United in the betting, who are priced at 9/1.

So, Manchester United are still fighting on three trophy fronts and bet365 price Fergie’s side at 22/1 to land all three. bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth “Sir Alex’s side are in pole position to land the Premier League / FA Cup double, but his side look a million miles away from Barcelona on current form.”

How many trophies do you think Manchester United will win this season? Don’t forget to have a bet on tonight’s match by clicking below and bet365 have the Man Utd v Marseille clash as their outsider of four to produce the most Champions League goals during midweek.
