Chelsea vs Man United – Betting Preview
This Sunday Premier League fans will enjoy the clash of Chelsea vs Manchester United. When two leading teams in the league meet, fans know that there will be a fantastic display.Chelsea, after a five-match winning streak, is second in the league, just one point behind Manchester City. United on the other hand are seventh in the league, nine points behind Chelsea.
The bookies are favoring Chelsea to win with odds of 4/5 to win, United are real outsiders with odds of 7/2.
This is no surprise when one realizes that Chelsea has conceded the second-fewest goals in the league and have managed three straight clean sheets.
To be in with a chance United need to focus on defending as their defense is weak due to the absence of Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney. There is huge pressure on Danny Welbeck to score goals as he currently ranks second on the team in goals.
On the other hand, Chelsea has scored nine goals in their last four matches. While they don’t have any stars, most of the players can be counted on to score goals.
Unfortunately for United fans things seem stacked against them, they haven’t beaten a top club on the road this season and this is unlikely to change this weekend.
