FA Cup: Back Gerrard to stick the knife into his old rivals

More misery. More gloom. More concern.

Life at Manchester United has been anything but a bowl of roses this season.

First, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer was thrown out in November and now questions are being asked of Ralf Rangnick.

The German watched on in horror on Monday night as United served up an awful performance against Wolves, who headed home with a thoroughly-deserved 1-0 win.

Being dumped out of the FA Cup by Aston Villa seven days later does not bear thinking about for United supporters, who will no doubt given Villa boss Steven Gerrard a hot reception on Monday night.

Gerrard often thrived on the big stage at Old Trafford as an opposition player with United’s most hated rivals Liverpool.

Can the legendary former Reds skipper engineer a Villa victory in his first FA Cup as a manager?

There are big odds available for those who think this may happen.

The standard win for Villa in 90 minutes can be backed at 9/2 with bet365 while several bookies, including  Coral and Ladbrokes, are offering a price of 50/1 for United to be leading at half-time and Villa to be in front at full-time.
