Chelsea vs Man Utd Odds: A must win for both sides!
When? Saturday 22nd October 2022
Where? Stamford Bridge
Broadcast: Sky Sports PL and Main Event
Last Result: Man Utd 1-1 Chelsea 28th April 2022
Both Chelsea and Man Utd have had mixed starts to their Premier League seasons. Chelsea have begun to turn things around under new boss Graham Potter and look a much better side at this stage of the season. Potter is yet to face a real test as Chelsea boss in the Premier League. Hosting United will be very much that.
United struggled at the beginning of the season but now look comfortable under Erik ten Hag. They have a great record against the ‘big six’ under ten Hag. They will pose a real threat to Chelsea.
Chelsea’s Potter has all the spells
It was a tame and dreary start to Chelsea’s season under Tuchel. There was a lack of excitement, despite all of the massive signings. Since he’s been replaced by Potter, it’s like a curse has been lifted and in true wizarding style, Chelsea are back.
They have had some miraculous results in Europe, beating AC Milan (the Italian Champions) home and away! They need to build on this big game form as they are set to take on another of Europe’s top clubs.
Chelsea will likely control most of the ball as the home side but will they be able to turn possession into goals? Graham Potter has already bested ten Hag this season while he was at Brighton. Can he do it again?
Our Chelsea Pick
The Chelsea vs Man Utd odds have the hosts as favourites, but with a good return. Chelsea are 21/10 to win. Our pick in the blue corner is a bet builder on 888sport.
- Chelsea to win
- Both teams to score
- Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score
Can ten Hag defeat another London side?
There are three London sides in the Premier League’s ‘big six’. Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham. United have played ⅔ of these teams so far. They defeated Arsenal 3-1 at Old Trafford and most recently beat Spurs 2-0. The last piece of the puzzle so far is Chelsea away. United will have to bring another top performance to Chelsea if they are to win.
The Cristiano Ronaldo saga continues as he was pictured leaving Old Trafford through the tunnel before time in their win against Spurs. The Portuguese international seems to be causing ten Hag problems, but he is quick to assure that everything is okay. Will he have a place against Chelsea?
Our Man Utd Pick
As previously mentioned, the Chelsea vs Man Utd odds are in favour of Chelsea, which means betting on a United win is more lucrative. Our pick will be a bet builder from 888sport:
- Man United to win
- Lisandro Martinez to be carded
These odds offer fantastic value and with Martinez facing off against quick wingers and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, there’s a good chance he’ll be booked.
Chelsea vs Man Utd Odds: Our Predictions
We can see this game being controlled by Chelsea possession wise, but being won by Man United. Their ability to breakaway so quickly will be too much for Chelsea’s defence. Casemiro will anchor his team from midfield and play a crucial role with his long passing ability.
