2017-18 EPL: Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tips

November 5, 2017 by Posted in Soccer Tips

It is ‘Jose derby’ time in English Premier League as he takes his Manchester United side to his old stomping ground Chelsea. The hosts will be keen to bridge the gap with the top two and get back into the title race while the visitors will look to stay in touch with the league leaders. This match would be played at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, November 5th.

Season so far
Chelsea’s title defence already looks out of control as they find themselves 4th in the table after 10 matches with 19 points. Antonio Conte’s men haven’t been able to establish their supremacy at home which was the cornerstone of their success last year. This season so far, they have won only twice in five home matches as defence continues to stutter for consistency. Injury to midfield lynchpin N’Golo Kante isn’t helping either as the Blues look desperately for getting back into the title mix.

United’s season started well but the recent poor form threatens to derail their title hopes. They currently are second with 23 points from 10 games, but they need to improve in big games. Mourinho’s penchant to ‘park the bus’ in big games could hurt their chances, especially with Manchester City running away at the top. Last weekend, he salvaged some pride by scoring a plucky 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur but the doubts over United’s title credentials remain.

Key Stats and battles
Chelsea won three and lost just one of their last six meetings against Manchester United. At home, in 15 Premier League matches, the Blues have won nine and lost just once. This corresponding fixture last season saw Chelsea winning 4-0.

Chelsea remain favourites to win the match and odds of $2.50 (William Hill) indicate the same. United are primed to win at odds of $3.20 (bet365), but the visitors do not look good to win. Back the Blues to win this match.

TIP: Chelsea to win – $2.50 at William Hill

Both sides will look to shut shop and reduce the number of goals which means the possibility of a low scorer are high. Back under 2.5 goals at odds of $1.61 (bet365).

TIP: Total goals UNDER 2.5 – $1.61 at bet365
