We enjoyed a 9/1 windfall from our Liverpool vs Man Utd selections last month, picking out the Reds to lead at half-time and full-time, under 2.5 goals and United to have most booking points.
Here’s our advice on how to get a nice return at Stamford Bridge:
CHELSEA TO WIN
The Blues will feel they owe United one, having lost 4-0 at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season and losing 2-1 in an EFL Cup tie here at the end of October. Frank Lampard’s side have since shown the better form and head into this contest six points clear of the Red Devils in the Premier League table. United have not won a league fixture at Stamford Bridge since 2012 and the absence of leading scorer Marcus Rashford makes this a tough task.
CHELSEA TO HAVE MOST CORNERS
Only Manchester City have earned more corners than Chelsea in top-flight matches this term, while United are down in ninth place in this department, trailing the Blues by 166 to 133, so this has to be a percentage pick for our Build A Bet tips.
OVER 49.5 BOOKING POINTS
Clashes between these clubs are usually very competitive and there has been no shortage of yellow cards issued in recent encounters. Seven cautions were handed out at Old Trafford back in August, while 12 players were booked over two league meetings last term.
‘NO’ IN BOTH TEAMS TO SCORE MARKET
Seven of Chelsea’s last nine home league games have seen at least one team fail to score, while the same applies to all of United’s last six top-flight fixtures. On this occasion, we expect the Red Devils to struggle up front. As already mentioned, Rashford is a big loss, while Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay are also still out. Surprise short-term signing Odion Ighalo will go straight into the squad, but the former Watford striker had only started pre-season training in China before the sudden move and missed the club’s warm-weather camp in Spain due to travel restriction concerns. With Anthony Martial failing to assert himself in a central role, United remain lightweight in attack for now.
