Two second half goals from Dimtar Berbatov and a Javier Hernandez strike helped Manchester United overcome a desperately unlucky Blackpool side in a pulsating Premier League game last night .
Blackpool had taken a deserved two goal lead by half time and maintained that advantage with less than twenty minutes to go .
It took the introduction of Ryan Giggs and Hernandez to change the course of the match, with Hernandez’s introduction for Wayne Rooney emphasising how out-of-sorts the England forward appeared from his left-wing station.
United are now five points clear of Arsenal in the race for the Premier League title and ten points clear of Chelsea and bookmakers reacted by cutting the odds of United winning the title to a best price of 8/11 with the betting exchange Betfair .
United still have to play Chelsea twice in the Premier League however and the Blues appear to be returning to form judging by their emphatic 4-0 away win at Bolton on Monday night .
The result leaves Blackpool still six points clear of the relegation positions but Ian Holloways side have now lost five of their last six Premier League games .
Manchester United remain unbeaten after 23 Premier League games and next face Aston Villa at Old Trafford with odds available of 11/1 on Betfair to remain unbeaten all season .
Berbatov is surely a good thing for Premier League top scorer barring injury . With 19 premier league goals , Berbatov is five clear of nearest rival Carlos Tevez and is generously priced at 8/11 with Coral .
