Beat the bookies with Aldo - Manchester derby special

Liverpool goal scoring great John Aldridge does not enjoy backing Manchester United for success - but he believes they will get a big win in their showdown with Manchester City on Saturday.

Aldo has been handed a weekly bet by our colleagues at Paddy Power, with all winnings being donated to Dublin's Temple Street Children's hospital at the end of the season.

All eyes are on Old Trafford for the most eagerly anticipated game of the fledgling season and Aldo believes one key factor will swing the tide in United's favour.

"Jose Mourinho has tended to a slice of luck when he has needed it most in his career and he has got another big break ahead of his first Manchester derby as United manager," says Aldo.

"Sergio Aguero is such a key player for City and his suspension has come at the perfect moment for United. I reckon his absence will tip the balance in their favour."

Here is Aldo's best for this weekend:
