Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview

Chelsea find themselves floundering down in 11th with just 40 points from 28 games. They are currently closer to the relegation zone than they are to the top four.

While things have been slightly more positive in Manchester, United are still well off the pace. Erik ten Hag is suffering from second-season syndrome, with his side 11 points off the Champions League spots.

They head to London off the back of a dismal 1-1 draw against Brentford. They were completely dominated for 90 minutes and were lucky to go ahead in injury time before Mason Mount’s celebrations were cut short due to a Kristoffer Ajer equaliser.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered a similarly poor performance and result, surrendering the lead twice against 10-men Burnley to earn just a point.

It was United who earned the bragging rights in the reverse fixture at Old Trafford, accumulating a 4.11xG en route to a 2-1 victory.

However, the last three meetings between these sides in the capital have ended all square and Chelsea are without a win on home soil since 2017.

Latest Premier League Matchday 31 Betting Odds

Chelsea go into the tie as 1.95 favourites on home soil. United, following their poor showing at the Community Stadium, are 3.45 underdogs. The draw is priced at 4.00.

Given the weakness in both defences, it’s not too surprising to see both teams to score is heavily backed at 1.37. The goals line is set a 3.5, with the over at 1.92 and under at 1.78.

Chelsea’s shining light Cole Palmer is leading the odds to break the deadlock at 6.00, with the Dane Rasmus Hojlund favourite to open the scoring for the visitors.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Chelsea to win and both teams to score – 2.80

It’s against the recent history of this fixture but we’re backing the hosts. Yes, the result against Burnley was poor, but they are the more in-form side.

United were awful against Brentford and could easily have lost by two or three. We fancy both teams to find the net but Chelsea have the momentum.

Bet Builder: BTTS, over 2.5 goals, Cole Palmer and Alejandro Garnacho to score anytime – 7.50

Palmer has been a genuine bright spark in a poor Chelsea season with 13 Premier League goals to his name already. He also scored in the reverse fixture and has four in his last three appearances.

Garnacho has been equally bright for United, although not quite as prolific. However, he gave the Chelsea full-backs headaches at Old Trafford and will likely be at the heart of everything positive that United do. 

Chelsea vs Manchester United Predicted Lineups

Chelsea: Petrovic, Gusto, Diasi, Badiashile, Cucurella, Caicedo, Fernandez, Gallagher, Pamer, Sterling, Jackson

Man United: Onana, Dalot, Maguire, Martinez, Wan Bissaka, McTominay, Mainoo, Garnacho, Fernandes, Rashford, Hojlund
