- Saturday, October 24, 2020 - 17.30: Manchester United v Chelsea
Who is the Manchester United v Chelsea Favourite?All the best betting sites are just about siding with Manchester United on this one, with home advantage and a win last weekend, as well as over PSG on Wednesday night perhaps the contributing factor.
United are priced at 7/5 with PariMatch, with Chelsea priced at 9/5. The Blues have drawn their last two fixtures, including a 3-3 thriller against Southampton last weekend. Lampard will be buoyed by Werner bagging a brace though and he’ll certainly be one to watch.
The draw can be backed at 13/5.
Head-to-HeadManchester United have generally had the better of the West London side in recent years, with the side winning both league games last term, as well as a 2-1 win in the League Cup.
In the fixture last year, United got their season off to a great start with a 4-0 win. That can be backed again at 66/1 with BetVictor, although we do expect a much tighter contest.
Chelsea did get the better of the Red Devils last time out, with many critical of Solskjaer’s team selection as they were dumped out of the FA Cup in the Semi-Finals 3-1. That was their only win in seven against United though so it will be a tough game and one in which the hosts will be fully confident in.

Our Manchester United v Chelsea PredictionsBoth sides will be looking to make a statement after a season that has already had a number of ups and downs. For United, it’s a chance for them to put the demons of the 6-1 loss to Spurs behind them by beating a top six side, and we can see them doing so.
A United win and BTTS looks a worthwhile punt at 16/5, while there are a number of VAR specials which certainly look appealing. A goal to be disallowed through VAR at 9/4 looks a worthwhile bet, and perhaps one that could be placed on any game this weekend.
Elsewhere, Werner to score and Manchester United to win 2-1 looks an interesting punt for the Score/Win market.
It is a game that could go either way, and it really does depend on which Manchester United side and which Chelsea side decides to turn up. Stars on both sides have been accused of failing to show up this season, but if they do then it could be the difference.
A draw may be a safe bet, but we can see the home side just edging this one. A Draw - Manchester United HT/FT bet would be our top punt priced at 11/2.
