Chelsea v Manchester United Tips & Betting PreviewEnglish Premier League
Chelsea are 13/10 to return to winning ways when they host Manchester United on Sunday, following their midweek Champions League defeat.
While the holders suffered their first loss of the season on Tuesday, going down 2-1 to Shakhtar Donetsk, United battled back from 2-0 to beat Braga 3-2 and effectively book their place in the next stage of the Champions League.
Man United 21/10
United perpetuated their recent tradition of conceding an early goal in that match and at 10/11 Chelsea are fancied to bag the first goal.
This fixture last season saw Sir Alex Ferguson’s team rescue a point having trailed 3-0 in the second half. Their recent performances haven’t showed enough to justify backing them for a result in west London – but they do suggest a similar amount of goals could be seen at the Bridge so get on the over 3.5 line at 19/10.
With the Blues fancied to draw first blood they are also tipped in the HT/FT market. The league leaders might have suffered a blip in Ukraine but they have been good value for their early season dominance and have looked every bit the title contenders.
In case United do pull out a shock – and make no mistakes, on current form a United win would be a shock – back Robin van Persie at 6/4 to score anytime as a saver.
