Chelsea v Manchester United betting preview and form guide
Chelsea can consider themselves more than lucky to sit in 4th place after their recent poor form. If the big names bellow team such as Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester United hadn’t been in such terrible shape this season, they would definitely be out of top five at the moment. The Blues have collected 41 points from the opening 25 rounds and have just two points more than the 5th-placed Sheffield United. In terms of form, Frank Lampard’s men have suffered an awful 1-0 loss on the road at Newcastle nearly a month ago and followed that with back-to-back draws against Arsenal and Leicester. The only positive thing about Chelsea at the moment is their home form as they are unbeaten in three competitive games while keeping two clean sheets.
As for Manchester United, they have suffered another dip in form recently and proved once again that you can’t rely on them. It’s clear for everyone that something doesn’t work well in the locker room, as they start to struggle almost every time after a couple of positive results. If we take the most recent games as an example, we can see that they managed a couple of victories over Newcastle, Burnley, and Norwich between the end of December 2019 to the middle of January 2020. However, they now enter the fray on the back of a three-game winless streak in the Premier League, including a bore 0-0 draw against Wolves at Old Trafford a fortnight ago. They have also been poor while on the road this season, having won just three of their twelve league trips. Their recent away form reads three defeats in four Premier League games, having scored just twice in the process.
Although both teams are far from challenging for the title at the moment, this game could help them to secure a Champions League spot. We expect to see a thrilling battle and it will be interesting to see if Chelsea can finally get a victory against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team, or if Manchester United will increase their head-to-head record over the Blues.
