Chelsea v Manchester United Betting Preview
Chelsea have won only two of their latest six home Premier League gamesChelsea (W12 D5 L8) are currently fourth in the table, nine points adrift of third-place Leicester but also 10 back of Man City. Defense remains a concern as Frank Lampard's men conceded at least once in 20 of the 25 Premier League fixtures they’ve contested since the start of the season. Last time out, Chelsea recorded a 2-2 draw at Leicester in the Premier League. Prior to that, they knocked Hull City out of the FA Cup with a 2-1 away victory. As to direct encounters, the Blues have been beaten twice by Manchester United this season by an aggregate score line of 6-1 and are winless in their last five competitive meetings against the Red Devils.
Tammy Abraham should benefit from the winter break, as he played through the pain of an ankle injury in recent weeks. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic are doubtful for Frank Lampard’s team, meaning that Willian, Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odi are likely to start as offensive midfielders. One of N'Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic will have to settle for a place on the bench, with Jorginho looking a sure starter in the middle of the park. At the back, Andreas Christensen has started the last four league matches alongside Antonio Rudiger and may well see off the challenge of Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori at centre-half. Goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga is being tipped to earn a recall on Monday.
Man UTD are W3-D2-L0 in their last five matches against Chelsea in all competitionsManchester United (W9 D8 L8), like Chelsea, have only won one of their last five in the league, and now sit in ninth position in the Premier League standings, six points behind Chelsea ahead of kickoff. The Reds Devils have failed to score in four of their last five Premier League matches, including the last three in a row. They've never gone four games without scoring in the Premier League era. In the last month, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men showed some spirit in defeat at Liverpool, but then suffered a damaging home loss versus Burnley, before being held to a 0-0 draw by Wolves at Old Trafford. Anyway, they are usually best away from home when they face the top teams, having won twice at Manchester City this term. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men recorded a 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening weekend of the 2019-20 Premier League season before also beating the Blues 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup in October.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will not have Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford at his disposal while January signing Odion Ighalo will be in the matchday squad on Monday to make his debut (probably during the second half). As a result Daniel James is expected to support Anthony Martial up front, with Mason Greenwood providing a further option up front. Nemanja Matic returns from suspension to feature alongside Fred and Bruno Fernandes in a central area while Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon William will start as wing-backs. Luke Shaw should play as centre back in a three man defense, alongside Viktor Lindelof and Harry Maguire.
