Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson says he is expecting a real battle when his side face Aston Villa on Monday.
United go into the game on the back of just one defeat in their last 22 league games and victory against the Villans will almost guarantee them the Premier League title.
With such a strong record, it is hard to look past the Red Devils going into the game and punters may choose to use their free bet to back the home side to take all three points.
However, it certainly won't be easy against a Villa side who have improved massively in the last few months but are still in huge danger of being relegated from the top flight.
Ferguson admits he has been impressed by how Paul Lambert's team have come on and says he is expecting an extremely tough game on Monday.
"We expect a scrap. The least you expect is for a team to fight for everything when they're down there," he said.
"Villa showed against Stoke that they have a bit of life about them and they should have won their game against Fulham last week. When I saw the structure of those teams, they looked really positive selections.
"A lot of teams in that situation may pick a team to get something out of the game. Paul Lambert picked a team to win. There is a distinction."
