Chelsea v Man Utd Betting Offers and Tips

The games come thick and fast in the Premier League on Sunday. Straight after the mouth watering match between Man City and Arsenal, it’s time for another battle between clubs from London and Manchester as Chelsea host Man Utd at Stamford Bridge.

These two sides have plenty of shared history. They’ve been competing against one another for major domestic honours for years and there’s always a real sense of occasion when they meet.

The rivalry between the two clubs has only intensified over the past year as it pits Antonio Conte against Jose Mourinho.

The two men fell out on the touchline when they met at the Bridge last season and with plenty of bad blood between them, they’ll both be desperate not to lose on Sunday.

Tight, Nervous and Quite Possibly a Stalemate

Conte and Mourinho are considered two of the very best managers around. They’ve both won the league title in multiple countries and would be considered for the biggest jobs in the football world.

They are not, however, exempt from criticism from their own fans.

Chelsea’s horrible start to this season (which included a 3-0 humiliation in the Champions League this week) has led some Blues’ fans to suggest that a chance in manager might be necessary just months after Conte won the Premier League title.

Man Utd fans aren’t quite at the point of calling for Mourinho’s head but many are unhappy with the overly defensive football that United have been playing of late.

Both sets of fans want to see their team get the ball forward and try to secure a handsome win over their rivals on Sunday. Unfortunately, they’re both going to be disappointed.

Neither Conte nor Mourinho will be prepared to give an inch so you can expect both teams to be set up first and foremost not to concede.

The fear that the two managers have for their opponent’s ability to score on the counter attack will keep attacking intent to a minimum and it would be no surprise to see this end in a draw at $3.20 with Palmerbet.

Chances will be at a Premium

Neutral soccer fans would be advised to tune into the Man City v Arsenal game if they’re looking for goals. If they’re looking for two committed teams doing all they can to keep the opposition at bay, the Chelsea v Man Utd game is for them.

When at their best, both the Blues and the Red Devils are very capable of shutting down space and keeping things tight in the back.

You can capitalise on a defensive performance from both teams in a few ways.

First, try a bet on the game’s first goal coming after 31 minutes at $2.10 with Centrebet. Second, a bet on the first half ending 0-0 is well worth a punt at $2.60 with William Hill.

Another potential route to profit from a match in which both teams are primarily concerned with stopping one another is by betting on the referee being busy.

Man Utd have some quality pacey options in attack while their midfielders are capable of bursting forward and adding to their goalscoring threat. Chelsea will have to stop United’s best players so we’re expecting the home side to pick up four or more yellow cards at $6 with Centrebet.

Another tempting option when it comes to bookings is betting on a Chelsea player being shown the game’s first yellow card at $2.35 with William Hill. There is certainly a lot of frustration at Chelsea which could well spill over onto the pitch.
