Premier League – Manchester United vs Chelsea Prediction and Betting Tips. In the big derby of Round 33 in Premier League, Manchester United host Chelsea at Old Trafford. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Manchester United vs Chelsea.
Manchester United stand at the 5th position in Premier League and their primary goal is to finish in the Top 4 and play in the Champions League next season. Few days ago, they played against Anderlecht in the Quarter-finals of Europa League and that’s the second way to qualify in the elite European football competition if they win it. Home side don’t need special motivation against Chelsea, because this is the big game and both side will be fully motivated to take three points. Jose Mourinho’s men are little tired, because they played match 4 days ago, but they have to make good result against leader if they want to qualify in Champions League. There are some rumors that their top scorer Zlatan Ibrahimovic will left the team if they failed to qualify in the that European competition. Big blow for home side is that their play-maker Juan Mata is still injured, while their first goalkeeper De Gea is doubtful.
Chelsea stand at the top of the table and they are on a good way to win the title, but they have to take very seriously the upcoming games, because Tottenham have only 4 points less and one match more. Visitors have to give their best in order to win this game. They will be satisfied with every result, except defeat, but the victory would give them enough confidence until the end of the season. Their top scorer Diego Costa is not in the good form, but Eden Hazard is playing amazing, so they both could the most dangerous players for home defenders. Chelsea didn’t lose against Manchester United in the last 12 matches in all competitions. They beat them 1-0 in the first part of the season, so they will be more than satisfied if they manage to repeat that success.
Home side will be without Jones, Mata and Smalling, while De Gea is doubtful, but he probably will start the match. On the other side, visitors will have full squad available.
