Premier League: Manchester United vs. Blackpool Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Manchester United vs. Blackpool Live Stream: The Red Devils head to Blackpool for a re-arranged fixture knowing victory could stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points with 15 games remaining.
United remain the only unbeaten team in the EPL; the Old Trafford club hasn’t lost in 27 league games since going down 2-1 at home to Chelsea last April. The Red Devils have, however, been flimsy at times on the road this season and have posted eight draws from ten matches.
All eyes will be on Manchester’s man of the moment, Dimitar Berbatov, who has 17 goals for the campaign so far. On Saturday the 29-year-old Bulgarian striker scored a hat trick as his side thrashed Birmingham 5-0, and tonight he will get a chance to continue his run of form against the Tangerines.
“Dimitar was marvelous,” United boss Sir Alex Ferguson told reporters. “He could have scored more and we were a bit wasteful at times with our finishing but you can’t complain at that performance, that was the important thing.”
Blackpool, meanwhile, will be looking to bounce back from the 2-1 loss against Sunderland. But Ian Holloway’s men, who despite being tipped to strive, have been one of the surprise packages of the season after winning promotion.
Defender David Carney wil not play tonight for Blackpool as he is still on international duty with Australia at the Asian Cup, but netkeeper Richard Kingson has been cleared to play after a head gash. Rio Ferdinand faces a late fitness test for United, with Jonny Evans and John O’Shea on standby in case the 32-year-old centre-back is not passed fit.
The game starts at 19:30 GMT.
UPDATE: Dimitar Berbatov struck twice to help United beat Blackpool 3-2 at Bloomfield Road.
