Man Utd vs Chelsea Predictions and Top Betting Tips

Man Utd vs Chelsea will be an interesting game based on the performances of the two teams in recent weeks. Here are our predictions.

Both Teams To Score Prediction: Yes

This is the usual thing that happens in the h2h matches between United and Chelsea. We normally see at least one goal per team and an extremely competitive match. Apart from that recent win that United got last season, almost every match in recent years has been a draw. It is a fact that Man Utd are one of the weakest teams in attack in the Premier League this season but Chelsea have been involved in massive scorelines lately. Their defense is terrible, which makes us believe that Man Utd will find the net at least once here.

Match Result Prediction: Draw

Chelsea have a single win at Old Trafford in the last ten years, and the teams play against each other 2-3 times per year. The fact remains that Man Utd are significantly weaker than Chelsea right now when it comes to scoring goals. Chelsea have been scoring extreme numbers in recent weeks and four of their last five games ended with at least five goals at full time. We do not expect this to happen against United, who have become a lot more defensive in recent weeks. This is always an extremely close and competitive match.

Correct Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw

Even with Chelsea's strong attack and bad defense, we do not see how this match could have a higher scoreline. It is possible but Man United have real problems in attack. Three of the last five games between these two teams ended with this exact scoreline – 1-1. At the same time, five of the last six were draws too. When we compare the Man Utd vs Chelsea line ups, we definitely think that the visitors have the advantage right now and their squad is finally starting to play good football.

Man Utd Predicted Line-up vs Chelsea

Nothing will change at United without solid rotations in the squad. Their performances have been abysmal and only two teams have allowed more dangerous chances and shots at their goal than United this season. Some players may return for this game, which is a huge positive, but they will still be without Casemiro, Eriksen, Malacia, Martinez, Mount, and Sancho. We think that there will be changes and here is our predicted line-up:

Onana – Dalot, Maguire, Varane, Shaw – Mainoo, Amrabat – Fernandes, Garnacho, Antony – Hojlund

Chelsea Predicted Line-up vs Man Utd

Chelsea have been in a similar position when it comes to injuries. At one point, they had 12+ injured players for a long period. But since their star athletes have returned, Chelsea started to win points again and look far more dangerous in attack than United. Nevertheless, Chelsea will be without Chalobah, Chilwell, Chukwuemeka, Fofana, Gallagher, and Nkunku in this fixture. Here is our predicted line-up:

Sanchez – Colwill, Silva, Disasi, James – Fernandez, Caicedo – Mudryk, Sterling, Palmer – Jackson
