Premier League betting – Chelsea v Man United
Chelsea v Manchester United betting odds, tips & free bets
Chelsea have the perfect opportunity to get their league form back on track when they host Manchester United on Tuesday evening. Although it would take something special for the Blues to retain their league title they could put a dent in their rival’s ambitions. On the other hand the Red Devils could make a serious statement with a win on Tuesday but they haven’t won at Stamford Bridge since 2002.
Chelsea may have turned the corner after a good win last time out over Copenhagen in the Champions League. In doing so manager Ancelotti reverted to a 442 formation partnering Nicholas Anelka and Fernando Torres to good success. Striker Anelka got the plaudits on the night after scoring 2 goals and the Frenchman is a great price at 7.0 with bet365 and Paddy Power to open the scoring. It still remains to be seen if Ancelotti will stick with this system against the league leaders though or if he reverts back to a 433 in the comfort of home surroundings. Fernando Torres is still awaiting his first Chelsea goal but the striker is best priced at 2.62 with sportingbet to score at any time. Chelsea are favourites for the big clash and best priced at 2.25 with Boylesports to win the game despite falling out of the title race and into 5th place in recent months.
Manchester United are enjoying a good season and are in prime position in the league going into the business end of the season. The Red Devils have only lost once in the league all season but their away form has been a bit shaky after winning just 4 of their 13 games. Wayne Rooney also looks to be finding some form again after scoring in consecutive league games and the England striker is a good bet at 3.1 with bet365 to get on the score sheet at any time. Clashes between the two sides have been fairly close over the last few seasons and that could continue again with a 1-1 draw looking like a good pick at 7.0 with William Hill. A half time/full time of Chelsea/Draw is definitely worth a look with odds of 16.0 at unibet.
