Manchester United vs Chelsea Betting Tip and Predictions. In the big derby match of Round 19 in Premier League, Manchester United host Chelsea at Old Trafford.
Manchester United are playing very poor in the recent period and that’s the reason why Louis van Gaal could leave the club. There are some rumors that the match against Chelsea could be his last match as a Manchester United manager. Home side failed to win in their last 6 matches in all competitions, while they lost in the previous three Premier League matches against not too strong teams: Bournemouth 2-1, Norwich 1-2 and Stoke City 2-0. The match against Chelsea doesn’t come in the right moment, especially if we take a look in their previous matches. United failed to beat today’s opponent in their last 10 matches in all competitions. Rooney miss the previous match against Stoke on Boxing Day and he could be in the first eleven against Chelsea.
Chelsea failed to win in the previous round against Watford. They had a penalty in the ’80 minute, but Oscar failed to score. Costa, who hit the net twice on that match, got booked and he will be out due to suspension, so Remy should replace him. Their new manager, Guus Hiddink, made some changes in Chelsea’s performance, but it wasn’t enough to beat Watford. He will have another chance to win for the first time as a Chelsea’s manager. Willian, who assisted Costa for the second goal, is optimistic and believe that they can improve their performance and get back on the winning way. “This situation is difficult for us but I think we can go and win game by game and finish the league in the top four.” – he said for the official Chelsea website.
