Manchester United v Chelsea

Date published: 4/28/2019 11:23:02 AM

Two sides battling for a top four spot in the Premier League meet on Sunday as Manchester United face Chelsea.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men must win to keep their hopes of Champions League football alive after eight defeats in their last nine matches in all competitions.

Chelsea also need to win as they try to hold off Arsenal, who are just one point behind them in the race for fourth.

Neither side can afford to slip up but Chelsea do have a lifeline as they will have to win the Europa League to qualify for the Champions League.

Ander Herrera may, with the midfielder missing the last six games with a hamstring injury.

Midfielder Scott McTominay missed Wednesday's derby defeat after failing a fitness test and he remains a doubt along with defender Phil Jones.

Maurizio Sarri should be able to call upon Antonio Rudiger as he tries to shake off a knee injury.

The German hobbled out of the Blues' 2-0 league loss at Liverpool but is closing in on full fitness.

N'Golo Kante remains a doubt due to a rib injury suffered in Monday's 2-2 draw with Burnley, while Callum Hudson-Odoi is a long-term absentee after Achilles surgery.

Betting Preview

PaddyPower Pre-Match Odds: Man Utd 8/5, Draw 23/10, Chelsea 17/10

In a clash between two teams who have been consistently coming up short, Manchester United take on Chelsea at Old Trafford. 

Both teams are coming into this game out of form with the Blues failing to win any of their last two games and Manchester United picking up just two wins from nine games in all competitions. 

Looking at the prices though, the recommendation has to be to back the visitors. Chelsea may not have set the world alight with their football however, at least they have managed to put the ball in the back of the net. 

Chelsea have scored nine goals in their last five games across all competitions. Manchester United have only managed two in that same period of time. 

Looking at the head to head record, it is clear that we shouldn’t expect a goal fest. Five from their last seven encounters have seen to under 2.5 goals bet land.

What’s more, Manchester United will be keen to keep their back door shut after conceding four against Everton, three against Barcelona and more recently, two against City. 

With that in mind, that is the recommended bet in a fixture which doesn’t fill us with much hope.  

Recommendation
Under 2.5 Goals – Evs bet365

    Manchester United 1-1 Chelsea

    Date published: 4/28/2019 6:35:43 PM

    Chelsea boosted their Premier League top-four hopes and dented Manchester United’s after securing a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

    Both sides went into the game knowing their rivals for Champions League qualification, Tottenham and Arsenal, had been defeated this weekend.
    Having lost their last two league games, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer described this clash as must-win and his side started with the bit between their teeth.
    Former Chelsea man Juan Mata handed the Red Devils a deserved early lead, but the visitors levelled just before the break when David De Gea followed up his error against Manchester City on Wednesday with another mistake to allow Marcos Alonso an equaliser.
    That seemed to knock the momentum out of United and in the end the sides had to settle for a point apiece which keeps Chelsea in fourth spot – two points ahead of Arsenal and three in front of United.
    United made five changes after the 2-0 derby defeat in midweek as Eric Bailly returned to central defence in place of Chris Smalling, while Romelu Lukaku, Mata, Ander Herrera and Nemanja Matic replaced Matteo Darmian, Andreas Pereira, Fred and Jesse Lingard.
    There were three Chelsea changes from the 2-2 draw against Burnley on Monday as Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Emerson and the injured Andreas Christensen were replaced by Mateo Kovacic, Alonso and Antonio Rudiger.
    United started strongly and went close to taking the lead inside four minutes when Luke Shaw picked out the run of Lukaku and, while he got in behind Rudiger and David Luiz, he couldn’t get the shot away cleanly and Kepa Arrizabalaga was able to make the save.
    It was no surprise when the hosts did get in front on 11 minutes with Lukaku's sublime pass playing in Shaw down the left of the area and his pull-back from the by-line fell to Mata who fired into the net from 12 yards.
    Chelsea did edge their way back into the contest, but failed to test David De Gea as Alonso hit a 25-yard free-kick over the top, before Jorginho saw his 20th-minute strike from the edge of the penalty area sail over the crossbar.
    There was a scare for Chelsea in the 28th minute when Rudiger headed an attempted clearance from a corner into the back of team-mate Cesar Azpilicueta’s head, but no United player could pounce when the ball dropped invitingly in front of goal.
    A minute later Bailly got between two defenders and saw his downward header from a corner bounce wide of the goal.
    United looked set to go in at the break with a deserved lead only for De Gea to drop another clanger on 44 minutes when he failed to hold on to Rudiger’s speculative 30-yard strike and Alonso was on hand to tuck away the rebound.
    Marcus Rashford forced a decent save from Kepa on 50 minutes, while De Gea did well to snuff out a low cross into the six-yard box from Willian on 57 minutes.
    Play was interrupted by a spate of injuries as Rudiger went off injured for Chelsea, while United lost both Rashford and Bailly in the space of five minutes.
    Willian was not too far away on 72 minutes as he whipped a free-kick just over De Gea’s goal from 25 yards.
    Marcos Rojo had only been on the pitch for eight minutes when he was fortunate to escape with just a booking for a rash challenge on Willian which left the Blues’ man requiring some treatment before being forced off six minutes from time.
    Rojo almost snatched a dramatic winner for the Red Devils in the third minute of seven added on for injuries, but his header was cleared off the line by Pedro with Kepa beaten.
    Gonzalo Higuaín had the final chance with virtually the last kick of the game but De Gea blocked his shot from the right at his near post.
