Chelsea v Manchester United Match Odds & Tips

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho returns to his former home of Stamford Bridge when the Red Devils travel to face Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Hosts Chelsea have been in fine form after overcoming a mini-slump, and are deemed favourites with the bookmakers given their impressive run of results in their own backyard this season

Chelsea could go level on points with Manchester City and Arsenal at the summit with a win, going five points clear of United in the process, but Mourinho is sure to make life difficult for his former club.

Chelsea are fifth in the Premier League table with 16 points from eight games, having won back-to-back outings ahead of their weekend meeting with United. The Blues boast three wins from four at home too, keeping two clean sheets, and don’t have any distraction from European football that could threaten the condition of the players.

Chelsea are 23/20 with Betfair to win against Manchester United. Three points adrift of leaders Manchester City and Arsenal, Chelsea could go level with the duo at the summit with a win over United, but the visitors aren’t going to lie down.

Manchester United find themselves two places and two points worse off than Chelsea in the Premier League this season, and have won one and drawn two of their last three.

Jose Mourinho’s men are coming off the back of a draw against Liverpool at Anfield that saw them use defensive tactics to ensure they weren’t defeated, and the Red Devils might adopt a similar approach at Stamford Bridge, rather than risk losing the game by trying to win. Manchester United are 11/4 with Betway to win against Chelsea, nevertheless.

United could go above Chelsea by a point if they win at Stamford Bridge, but it’s unlikely they will leave themselves too open given Mourinho is in charge.

As a result, Winner Sports are giving odds of 47/20 for Chelsea and Manchester United to draw. Potentially an outcome both sides would settle for if given the chance before the game.
