A United fan won £1250 after betting on a 4-0 MK Dons victory the other night

Holly Griffiths is now considerably better off after an improbable series of events.

A MANCHESTER UNITED fan won £1250.00 the other night after correctly tipping Manchester United to lose 4-0 to MK Dons.

Cheshire-based Holly Griffiths made the bet unwittingly, as she thought she was placing money on United to win 4-0 but made a substantial error somewhere during the process.

Luckily for her though, the bet was proven right regardless, and she was left considerably better off as a result.

Moreover, Griffiths wasn’t the only one to predict this improbable outcome, as the tweet below illustrates.
