Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tips
When it comes to the Premier League, Chelsea have been simply brilliant. Manchester United, on the other hand, have been pretty disappointing. On Wednesday evening, these two meet in the EFL Cup, a competition that’s not as important for these two as the Premier League, but nevertheless, a competition both of these teams would like to win.
The reason why the clash between Chelsea and Man United is important is that it has the potential to change their form, for better or for worse. With a win over the Red Devils, Chelsea would stay confident and ready to do even better in the Premier League and the Europa League in the upcoming weeks. If it went the other way around, it could mean the end of their brilliant form. And if Man United managed to win this game, it would certainly give them the much-needed confidence boost.
You can be sure both teams will give their best on Wednesday to try and win this game. However, Chelsea look more capable of actually getting a win. This team has won their previous seven matches in all competitions. They’ve been superb in the final third this entire season and their defense seems to be improving constantly. Many pundits believe it’s all thanks to their manager Frank Lampard and his decision to give young, enthusiastic players a chance.
The trouble with youngsters is that they’re inexperienced, thus prone to losing their cool if things start going off the track. That’s why losing this match could have grave consequences. The Blues are currently flying really high, but the Red Devils could shoot them down.
That’s exactly what Manchester United fans are hoping to happen at the Stamford Bridge. The trouble is that their players just don’t seem good enough to keep up with motivated Chelsea. The Red Devils have troubles with injuries, plus the atmosphere in their locker-room is apparently very poor. Not to mention that their manager Solskjaer is among the top favorites for getting sacked.
For all these reasons Chelsea seem destined to win this match and get a sort of revenge for the hammering they received in the opening round of the Premier League back in August. The score in that match was 4:0 Man United. This time, it seems it’s going to be the other way around.
