Chelsea vs Manchester United Prediction, Betting Tips and Preview

Chelsea and Manchester United go head to head in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon and we expect a true football battle for the points. Major bookmakers once again surprised us with very good betting odds and plenty of different games to play and therefore you should seriously consider to put this match among others on your betting tickets.

Chelsea are not in good form this season and they have already lost as many home Premier League games this season. The Blues will be desperate to bounce back in a positive manner after suffering the defeat at Roma in midweek in a Champions League. Last season, Chelsea mopped the floor with United in a 4-0 win, but the true question is can the Blues do that again?

On the other side Manchester United play very well this season and they are highly motivated for this game. Romelu Lukaku failed to score in October and it can be a problem for the Red Devils. Away from home in the Premier League they have dropped points on three occasions this season. United like to play strong football in defense line and have kept a clean sheet in 10 of their last 12 Premier League matches. The Red Devils are very dangerous on the end of the match and have scored 10 goals in the last 10 minutes of Premier League games this season.

When it comes to their mutual encounters Chelsea have lost just one of their last 15 home Premier League games against Manchester United. The Red Devils have an awful record winning away at Chelsea in the league and all players are highly motivated for this game. Manchester United have had 147 shots on goal in the Premier League this season, whilst Chelsea have had 133. Read our betting preview and take your chance to win a big with our prediction and betting tips.

Antonio Conte: "We are struggling a lot, because we are facing a lot of important problems. To solve these problems is not simple. In this moment you can see if you are a winner or a loser."

Jose Mourinho: "It's a big thing because it's a big match, because it's a big opponent, because it's the champions. It's one of these matches between the top teams in the country. But from the emotional point of view, it's just one more game."

  1. Fellaini both in and out of the starting xi? Do me a favour.

      “Almost all of them will not play”…He is not fully fit, but we expect to see him in starting XI

      • Cheers – it was a good call on the match and if mourinho had shown more cajones it may well have been 1-1!
        V good call on city game👍🏻
