Chelsea 6/4 to beat Manchester United in Sunday’s Premier League showdown
Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea to beat Manchester United
Odds: 6/4 @ Bet365
The Premier League returns this weekend for its final games before yet another international break. Following the Champions League matches in midweek, a number of England’s top sides will be looking to take their form into the weekend, with Manchester United one such side. However, their hosts in Chelsea were hammered 3-0 by Roma in the week, and they will be looking for a way to bounce back as quickly as possible this weekend.
Chelsea have struggled this season following their title-winning campaign last time around and they currently find themselves in fourth in the league with 19 points, nine short of early pace-setters Manchester City. Their 3-0 defeat to Roma realised the fears of many of the fans with their attack poor and their defence even worse in the week. A win on Sunday is vital if they are to maintain their Premier League title defence, but Manchester United will provide a very stern test.
A 1-0 win over Tottenham last weekend helped to ease the tension that had been building following a 0-0 draw with Liverpool and a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Huddersfield. Their win over Benfica in the Champions League steadied the ship further, and they are once again looking like the league’s best option to catch City at the top. However, Jose Mourinho tends to utilise more defensive tactics against the top sides preferring to not to lose the game, but a draw does not favour either side if City beat Arsenal in the earlier kick-off. Due to their home advantage, we are backing Chelsea with odds of 6/4 from Bet365.
