Man Utd are Yet to Lose on their Travels
Chelsea played out a disappointing 1-1 draw away at Southampton last time out, a game they really should have won on the balance of play. Despite dominating the first half, Chelsea found themselves behind at the break to a neat finish from Minamino. Hudson-Odoi came on for Abraham at half time but only last around 30-minutes before being substituted due to a poor performance. Before that harsh substitution, Chelsea equalised from the penalty spot through Mount but were unable to finish off the Saints and had to settle for a share of the spoils.
Man Utd played host to Newcastle in their last league game, where a goal from Rashford put the home side in front on the half-hour mark. Newcastle equalised through star player Saint-Maximin before the break, but United regained their advantage in the 57th-minute through James. A third goal from the penalty spot for Bruno Fernandes made sure of the points for the home side and keeps some pressure on the league leaders Man City.
Chelsea have won five and drawn one of their last six matches in all competitions and face Atletico Madrid in the Champions League next. Man Utd have won four and drawn two of their last six outings in league and cup, and next up for the Red Devils is the 2nd leg of their Europa League tie against Real Sociedad.
Man Utd lead the head-to-head record between these two clubs with 69 wins, 48 draws and 53 defeats from their last 170 encounters with Chelsea in all competitions. Chelsea have draw one and won one of their last two games against United, but the Red Devils have secured four wins from the duo's last seven meetings in league and cup, including victories in each of their last three trips to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea could be without Kai Havertz, Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Thiago Silva this weekend, but will be hoping some pass late fitness tests.
Paul Pogba, Edinson Cavani, Dony van de Beek, Scott McTominay and Phil Jones could miss the trip to London for the visitors, though late fitness tests will be handed out to Cavani, van de Beek and McTominay.
Chelsea vs Man Utd Three Best Bets
We're expecting a fantastic game of football between these two Champions League-chasing sides. Man Utd have that excellent away run that seem them unbeaten on their travels in the Premier League this season, while Chelsea are performing very well for their new manager and look a lot tougher to breakdown at the back. With all that in mind, United look like they will come away from Stamford Bridge with at least a point but the game itself is expected to be tight and tense throughout, so we might not be treated to a whole host of goals.
- Double Chance: Man Utd to Win or Draw @ 4/6 with Betfred
- Anytime Goalscorer: Bruno Fernandes to Score @ 17/10 with William Hill
- Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals @ 10/11 with bet354
Double Chance: Man Utd to Win or Draw
Man United have secured four wins and two draws from their last seven games against Chelsea in all competitions, with the pair playing out a 0-0 draw when they last locked horns in October. The visitors have won their last three trips to Stamford Bridge and are yet to lose a single game on their travels in the Premier League this season. Man Utd haven't lost any of their last six matches in league or cup heading into the 2nd leg of their game against Real Sociedad.
Anytime Goalscorer: Bruno Fernandes to Score
Bruno Fernandes scored from the spot when Chelsea beat United 3-1 in the FA Cup last season. The Portuguese midfielder has scored 15-goals in the Premier League alone this season, seven of which have come from the penalty spot. With 7-goals in his last eight games in all competitions, Bruno Fernandes is in top form in front of goal, whether it be penalties, free-kicks or long shots, the Portuguese international is Man Utd's biggest threat in front of goal this season.
Total Goals Under/Over: Under 2.5 Goals
Under 2.5 goals were produced when these two sides last met, a 0-0 draw in October, and four of their last seven encounters have featured fewer than three goals. Five of Chelsea's last six matches have produced under 2.5 goals and Tuchel is clearly working wonders with the host's defence since taking over from Frank Lampard. Two of United's last four outings have also featured under 2.5 goals and that includes their last away game in the Premier League, a 1-1 draw with West Brom.
