Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tips

Struggling Manchester United visits an in-form Chelsea after sacking their manager, and this match can be important for the road to their season redemption. Manchester United’s interim coach Michael Carrick won an important match to help them qualify for the UCL knockout stages in an unconvincing first half display.  

Chelsea has been on fine form and blistered away their opponents with their only dent coming from the 1-1 draw against Burnley, a match they should have killed off in the first half. 

Both teams played in the Midweek and won their matches to qualify for the knockout stages and they will meet this weekend to rekindle an age-long rivalry. 

Manchester United has lost to all the top 4 teams they have faced this season, but would they lose again to Chelsea? Here are our thoughts.  

Chelsea Form and Team News

Chelsea has been the most in-form club in Europe and they are dreadful to play against. They trashed Juventus 4-0 during the week and thrashed Leicester City 3-0 last weekend. They have won 4 of their last 5 matches and conceded only 1 goal. In general, this season, they have only conceded 4 goals which show their defensive resilience.   

On the team news, they have been battling with a few injuries this season, though it is just a dent in their performances. Timo Werner, Pulisic, and Lukaku returned from injury though Lukaku isn’t fully match fit and might not start against Manchester United. 

Other notable injuries are Kovacic, Kante, Chilwell, Jorginho was subbed off last time and might not start but that is yet to be known.     

Manchester United Form and Team News

Manchester United at the start of the season was looking like title contenders but that doesn’t look like the case after the run of 12 games. The  Red Devils have won just 1 of their last 5 EPL matches, losing thrice and drawing once. 

This bad run of form has seen them drop down to 8th position with many goals conceded. On the team news for this upcoming clash, they have some injuries and suspension which might impact them on this game.

Captain Harry Maguire is out of this clash due to suspension, Luke Shaw, Pogba, Greenwood,  Cavani, and Varane are all out due to injuries.

Our Tipsters Angle

In the last 5 matches between Chelsea and Manchester United, Chelsea has won once and lost twice while drawing the rest in all competitions. However, this match has seen double straight 0-0 scorelines which is something we need to put into consideration. 

Both teams played in the midweek and while Chelsea has many backup plans in their squad, the same can not be said about Manchester United and it would be interesting to see which way this match would go. 

Below, we have evaluated the team stats and strengths, and here is our prediction for this match:

Tip 1: Chelsea Win 

This is a home game that would test Chelsea again against the top clubs in EPL. Having failed to win either Man City or Liverpool, the outcome of this match might speak volumes on how strong they are against English big teams.  

Chelsea looks stronger and with the possible start of Lukaku, struggling Manchester United might have too much on their hands to deal with. Chelsea has the firepower to score goals from anywhere as their defenders look more dangerous than the forwards. 

 At the Casumo Sportsbook, Chelsea to win or draw is available at odds 1.58.

Tip 2: Chelsea Win, Chelsea Most Corners, and Man Utd Most cards (Casumo Pre-Pack Bets)

Chelsea is the stronger side with a more experienced manager and they play more like a unit than Manchester United. Checking the statistics of their past matches, Chelsea has won almost 80% of all their match corners while Manchester united has committed most fouls leading to cards. 

Casumo Sportsbook has this interesting pre-pack bet feature at an interesting odds of 3.40 and we think it is a good value to go with it for this match. 


Chelsea under Thomas Tuchel is a hard team to beat due to how they orchestrate their defense and attack. While a motivated Manchester United might be hard to break down, we think Chelsea has what it takes to win this match in front of their home fans. 

Michale Carrick is expected to field a similar starting eleven that beat Villareal except for Maguire who is on suspension. But Manchester United has CR7 and that is a game-changer for this match, and it can go either way.
