After producing one of their best results of the season, Manchester United will attempt to translate that momentum into a much-needed away win as they take on Blackpool at Bloomfield Road tonight.

On Saturday, United dominated from start to finish in a 5-0 demolition of Birmingham City, with Dimitar Berbatov leading the way with his third hat trick of the season.

The win moved United two points clear at the top of Premier League table, and if they can secure all three points against Ian Holloway’s side, they’ll be five points up on Arsenal with the same number of games played, six clear of Manchester City with a game still in hand, and ten clear of Chelsea with the same number of games played.
