Our Tipster’s Angle

It promises to be a tight encounter between two titans of English football. Manchester United have played at a very high level this season and will fancy their chances to get a positive result against their rivals from London.

Tip 1: Manchester United To Win or Draw

Manchester United is in a decent vein of form in the Premier League. They have won five, drawn four, and lost only one match in their last ten league fixtures. The Red Devils have also dominated in this fixture as they have won three and drawn three of their last six fixtures. They would also gain confidence from the fact that they are unbeaten away from home in the league this season. Apart from that, Chelsea have just two wins in their last five home matches. Hence it looks likely that they would grab at least a point away from home at 1.68 odds available in the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Total Goals Under 2.5

It is always a cagey contest when these two sides lock horns. Under 2.5 goals were scored in three of the last five head to head matches played at Stamford Bridge. In the last five fixtures that Chelsea played, only one fixture has resulted in more than 2.5 goals. Also, just one match had over 2.5 goals in the last five home matches that Chelsea played in the Premier League. Apart from that, under 2.5 goals were scored in four of the last five away matches that Manchester United played in the Premier League. So it looks most likely that this would be a low scoring encounter and under 2.5 goals would be scored at 1.82 odds available on Casumo sportsbook.


A victory is very important for both sides for different reasons. Whereas a win for Chelsea would go a long way to secure a place in the top four, Manchester would need a win desperately to keep their title hopes alive. It promises to be another tantalizing encounter between the two historically great teams in the premier league. Summarizing a couple of bets mentioned above.

  1. Manchester United Win or Draw @ 1.68
  2. Total Goals Under 2.5 @ 1.82
