Betting Tips for the game
Manchester United produced a mediocre performance and ended up losing 2-0 against rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford in the midweek action. This result added more to the worrying trend as United have now lost seven of the last nine matches.
Chelsea could only muster a point against Burnley on Monday night after being held to a 2-2 draw. The game witnessed Maurizio Sarri being sent to the stands due to protestation, as Burnley frustrated the home team with defensive tactics and physical approach.
United were able to pick up a 2-0 win over Chelsea in the recent game with the Blues. Maurizio Sarri has never been able to beat United as a manager. Chelsea’s last trip to Old Trafford was with Antonio Conte at the helm and they lost 2-1. Our betting tips and predictions would go with a win for Chelsea.

There is an unmistakable improvement from Chelsea over the last few weeks and they have come up with some strong performances. Manchester United have gone through a polar opposite in terms of form, as a run of seven losses in nine games has led to many questioning Solskjaer’s appointment on a permanent basis. United’s lethargic performance in recent weeks is likely to give motivation for Chelsea, who now have top four in their own hands. Our preview would go with a win for Chelsea.

Manchester United vs Chelsea draw odds: 3.30
Manchester United win odds: 2.62
Correct Score odds
Chelsea have come up with a return of just four goals in the last six away matches, but it is not down to a lack of performance. The games against Liverpool and Cardiff witnessed the Blues coming up with strong offensive performances. United’s lethargic attitude will be more profound in the second half, when most of the goals are expected. Our correct score prediction would go with a 2-0 win for Chelsea.

Over/Under 2.5 Goals odds
Even though Chelsea have been unable to score in five out of the last seven away league matches, the poor defensive attitude and display from Manchester United over the last couple of weeks will give them confidence. United have not scored in three successive matches and they have conceded nine goals during this period. Chelsea may not be able to score much. Hence, our total goals prediction would back under 2.5 goals.

First Goalscorer odds
Eden Hazard remains the biggest attacking threat for Chelsea even if his future is in the limbo. The Belgian has two goals in 12 appearances against Manchester United. The record may not be great, but Hazard has just been going through his best season. The 28-year-old could have scored a brace against Liverpool in the recent heavyweight game. Our first goalscorer prediction would back Eden Hazard.
