Ruthless Red Devils cut for glory after easy win

WAYNE ROONEY and Robin van Persie were in the goals again on Saturday as Manchester United were cut to 8-15 for the Premier League after a 3-1 success over struggling Sunderland.

Both United strikers found the net as Sir Alex Ferguson’s side maintained their six-point lead over arch-rivals City, who won 3-1 at Newcastle. Roberto Mancini’s men are 9-4 with Ladbrokes to retain their title.

Bottom club QPR held on to claim their first win of the season against Fulham and Harry Redknapp’s team are out to 8-11 to be relegated.

Aston Villa have drifted to 4-1 for the drop with Boylesports and Ladbrokes after triumphing 3-1 at Liverpool, who are 12th and 10-1 with the Magic Sign to finish in the bottom half after suffering their fifth league defeat of the season.

Getafe v Villarreal

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • Villarreal have failed to score in their last three La Liga away games
Expert verdict
Villarreal are the lowest scorers among the teams who started the weekend in the top nine of La Liga and a lack of firepower could mean they settle for a draw at lowly Getafe. Ten of Getafe’s 11 points have been secured at home and they can hold their own against the Yellow Submarines, who have notched just five goals on their league travels.
