Chelsea vs Man UTD Betting Preview
Chelsea have picked up 14 points from the last 18 available to rise into fifth position in the table. They are now just six points behind United, and will see this as the perfect opportunity to close the gap on the Red Devils. The Blues played out a disappointing 1-1 draw away at Southampton last time out but managed to earn an important 1-0 victory at Atletico Madrid in Champions League last Tuesday. As a result, Thomas Tuchel has won six and drawn two of his first eight games in charge, with six clean sheets in the process.
Manchester UTD have had mixed results in recent weeks, but a 3-1 home win over Newcastle kept them second in the Premier League table. The Red Devils have won just two of their last six home fixtures in the top-flight, including draws in three of their last five but their away performance are extremely good. Ole Gunnars Solskjaer's men eased past Real Sociedad in their European knockout tie (4-0 in the first leg and 0-0 on Thursday). They have two days less to recover compared to Chelsea but Solskjaer was able to rest many regular starters. As to direct encounters, the Red Devils have won three and drawn one of their last four matches at Stamford Bridge.
- Playing at home is always a big advantage, so Chelsea are favorites at 5/4 with William Hill.
- The Draw can be backed at 12/5 with Bet365
- A victory for Manchester UTD is available at 5/2 with Betfair.

Chelsea (3-4-2-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Werner
Thiago Silva is out for the Blues as he continues his recovery from a muscle injury. As a result, Andreas Christensen will start at the heart of the back, flanked by Cesar Azpilicueta and Antonio Rudiger. Up front, Olivier Giroud appears to be more in favour than Tammy Abraham at present while Timo Werner and Mason Mount are favorite over Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz to support the French striker. In midfield, N'Golo Kante is pushing for just his second league start under Tuchel but the German manager is expected to select Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho.
Manchester United (4-2-3-1): De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, McTominay; Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood; Cavani
Paul Pogba is sidelined due to a thigh problem, while Edinson Cavani has also been struggling with a fitness problem recently. Mason Greenwood could feature on the right as Daniel James is a doubt with a muscular problem, with Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes completing the offensive midfield trio. The potential absence of Scott McTominay (knock) will see Fred and Nemanja Matic start again in the middle of the park. At the back, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire will almost certainly return to the United defence after benchings in midweek

Our Chelsea vs Man UTD PredictionsWe're expecting a very close and very competitive 90-minutes between these two teams. Chelsea, while impressive against Atletico Madrid in midweek, looked vulnerable at times against Southampton last weekend. Man Utd are undefeated in their last 19 away matches in Premier League and we expect the Red Devils to make it 20. The Correct Score could be 1-1 or a narrow win for the Red Devils.
