Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge firmly on the brink after Manchester United’s start to the Season. A come from behind win at home to Newcastle seems to have saved his blushes for now and there is nothing like a match against his former Club to get more fascinating comments from Jose in a pre or post match press conference.
Chelsea vs Manchester United has been a top fixture in the Premier League for a long time now and this Saturday’s match is no different with contrasting starts to the season as Chelsea sit 7 points clear of Manchester United and still unbeaten.
Chelsea have a great recent record against Manchester United and there is a similar score line which has become synonymous with this fixtures. Chelsea beat Manchester United 1-0 in FA Cup Final last season and also by the same score in Premier League at Stamford Bridge. The year before saw a 1-0 win for Chelsea in FA Cup and a 4-0 win in Premier League.
Chelsea sit joint top of Premier League winning 8 out of their 10 fixtures. Hazard has been their star so far this season, but it’s a team effort which has got the Blues flying high. In contract Manchester United have lost 3 game so far conceding 14 goals in their 10 games.
Chelsea are 7/10 (1.70) favourites to win the game and continue their fine start to the season. For Jose to cause what would be a shock win for Manchester United, they are priced 27/7 (5.85) to win the game. Draw can be backed at 14/5 (3.80).
We can’t see anything but a Chelsea win in this match, but we have a few bigger priced odds to give value bets.
Looking at recent history Manchester United have struggled at Chelsea, so we fancy Chelsea to win and under 3.5 goals at 27/20 (2.35). We would also put up Chelsea to win to Nil at 9/5 (2.80) which has happened in the last 3 matches at Stamford Bridge.
In goalscorer market Edin Hazard is 4/1 (5.0) to score first. The Belgian is in top form and plays well in big games, so worth a play here.
Finally, following trends a 1-0 correct score win 27/5 (6.40) for Chelsea (repeat from FA Cup Final and League match last year) is a tentative selection to put up.
Good luck with your bets.
