Beat the bookies with Aldo

Aldo backing Arsenal to beat Manchester United this weekend

Liverpool and Republic of Ireland goalscoring great John Aldridge had a near miss in his sundayworld.com bet last weekend, with Tottenham letting him down in their Capital One Cup final defeat against Chelsea.

Aldo backed both teams to score in the Premier League match between Liverpool and Manchester City, as well as the Wembley showdown between Chelsea and Spurs, but the last of those four teams failed to break their duck.

The FA Cup quarter-finals are on the agenda this weekend and Aldo is backing Arsenal to get a rare away victory against Manchester United on Monday night.

"It should be a great game at Old Trafford and I expect both teams to score, but I fancy Arsenal to get a result," Aldo tells us.

"The way Liverpool are playing at the moment, I would not fear facing either of those two later in the competition. My old club look like the favourites for the FA Cup right now."

Here is Aldo's bet for this week in association with our friends at Paddy Power, with all winnings going to Dublin's Temple Street Children's hospital: 

€50 on Arsenal to beat Manchester United on Monday and both teams to score in the FA Cup quarter-final tie (possible returns €330.00)
