Premier League: Chelsea vs Manchester United

Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tip and Predictions. In the last match of Round 9 in Premier League, in a big derby, Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. Read below betting preview, betting tips, useful info and betting predictions for the match between Chelsea vs Manchester United.


Chelsea started this season in Premier League very solid and after 8 rounds they are standing at the 5th position. Their ambitions are to win the title, but there are many other good teams who want the same, so it won’t be an easy job. Home side were played very good against “weaker teams” and the most of them Chelsea beat, but when they faced with stronger opponents they failed. For example, Arsenal smashed them at Emirates 3-0, while at home they lost against Liverpool. The match against Manchester United is very important for them and they can’t afford to lose this one. It won’t be an easy job, but they have improved their performance and won two matches in a row in which they didn’t concede a single goal. Last season both matches between Chelsea vs Manchester United were finished without winner (1-1, 0-0). Interesting fact is that six of their last seven matches were finished under 2.5 goals.

Manchester United stand at the 7th position and they can’t be satisfied with their recent performance. In the last five Premier League matches they have managed to win only once. Visitors invested in team too much this season, they brought new manager Jose Mourinho, midfielder Pogba and striker Ibrahimovic, so this position is unacceptable and the club management expect better results. Three days ago, Manchester United played against Fenerbahce in the group phase of the UEFA Europa League and smashed them 4-1. Good news for Mourinho, is that Paul Pogba woke up and scored two goals. Visitors are not too much interested in that European competition, but that victory was very important for them and it will give them enough self confidence for the clash against Chelsea. Luke Shaw has recovered from an injury and he will be in the contention for the game against Blues.

Team News

Home side miss Terry, Zouma and Ginkel, while Mikel, Ivanovic and Fabregas are all doubtful. On the other side, visitors have almost full squad available, except Schneiderlin and Jones who are still injured.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Predicted Lineups

Chelsea: Courtois, Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill, Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso, Willian, Costa, Hazard.
Manchester United: de Gea, Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind, Herrera, Fellaini, Martial, Pogba, Rashford, Ibrahimovic.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Prediction

Both teams want to win this game, but their main goal is to stay unbeaten, so I don’t expect that they will attack from the first minute. I expect very tough match between Chelsea vs Manchester United and maximum 2 goals.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tip: under 2.5 goals @ 1.70 (Bet365)
