Liverpool and Republic of Ireland goalscoring great John Aldridge is focusing on this weekend's Manchester derby for his latest bet - and he is predicting a tense stalemate at Old Trafford.

Aldo has already won over €3000 in his weekly punt on this website, with all the cash to be handed over to Dublin's Temple Street Children's hospital at the end of the season.

All eyes will be on the clash between Manchester United and their neighbours City this weekend and Aldo is expecting a nervous clash between two teams pushing to seal a top four finish in the Premier League.

"I played in enough derby games to know they are tight affairs and it is often a good bet to predict a draw," says Aldo.

"United are the team in form and City look to be in big trouble after some of the recent performances, but I expect them to raise their game in the derby and get a point."

Aldo's bet for this week is as follows:

Manchester United and Manchester City to play out a draw on Sunday (possible winnings €162.50)
