Chelsea v Man Utd – Premier League Betting Guide: 20th Oct 2018

Saturday 20th October 2018
Chelsea v Manchester United 12:30

After a late rally in their last game against Newcastle (won 3-2), Man Utd and under-fire boss, Jose Mourhino, were given another lifeline but with a trip to Chelsea next for the Red Devils then things don’t get much easier.

With the added sub-plot of Mourhino returning to his old club again then there will be plenty of interest in this fixture that sees Chelsea as the firm favourites in the match betting at 1.65, with the Draw 3.75 and Man Utd 5.25.

The Blues are unbeaten from their opening 8 games – with 6 wins and 2 draws, while United have had a stuttering start to the campaign with only 4 victories in their first 8 matches.

This fixture last season saw the Londoners record a 1-0 home win – a repeat of that can be backed at 7.50, while Chelsea are also unbeaten in the last 5 repeat fixtures and have only lost 1 of their last 16 home league games over the Manchester club!

There has been a fair few draws though (4 of the last 10 have ended all square), while when the sides meet they are generally low-scoring encounters, with 6 of the last 8 going Under 2.5 goals. A repeat of 2 or less total goals scored in the game is on offer at 1.90 and is sure to attract interest.

It’s also a fixture that both teams have a habit of scoring in – 5 of the last 7 head-to-heads have seen goals from both sides. This is on offer at 1.80.

Having said that, a slight word of caution on this score as United have netted just 1 goal from the last 4 repeat fixtures. In fact, Chelsea have also won 3 of the last 4 repeat fixtures ‘to nil’ so the 2.75 on offer on this happening again might catch the eye of some too.

However, we’ll stick with a low-scoring game here and opt for Under 2.5 goals @1.90. This bet has paid out in 3 of the last 4 repeat fixtures and also in 75% of the last 8 league meetings between the teams.

BEST BET: UNDER 2.5 GOALS @1.90
