Manchester United vs Chelsea Betting Tips, Odds, Predictions


We would normally expect a huge impact at the top of the table when seeing Manchester United vs Chelsea on the fixture list.  

It is only the home side that are in the top four and now need just a point to secure a Champions League spot for next season.

Correct Score Predictions

Manchester United’s strong form at Old Trafford has been built on a rock-solid defence. The Red Devils have not conceded a goal in any of their last six home games. 

Chelsea’s 1-0 defeat at Manchester City on Sunday was the 14th time they have failed to score in a league game this season. Only three sides have scored in fewer top-flight fixtures this term than the Blues. 

It is clear to see why the home side are odds on favourite to win. With a strong defence hosting a weak attack a 2-0 scoreline is a likely outcome. That’s at 8/1 with Bet9ja.

 1×2 Predictions

After losing on the opening day of the season to Brighton, Manchester United have taken 42 points from a possible 48 at home. That average of 2.47 points per game is only bettered by champions Manchester City (2.74). 

The Red Devils have won their last four home games and are unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League games against Chelsea. 

The Blues’ terrible season means they will finish in the bottom half of the table for the first time since the 1995/96 campaign. 

They have lost 11 of their last 16 road trips in all competitions. Also winning none of their 15 Premier League games against sides starting the day above them in the table.

The hosts are worthy favourites in the 1×2 market here and it is wise to side with them to claim all three points at 8/13 with Bet9ja.

Draw No Bet Predictions

Manchester United carry the value in the draw no bet predictions. They haven’t lost at home in the Premier League since August. United haven’t lost any of their last 28 home matches in all competitions.

They’re the value in this market. A Manchester United draw no bet means that if United win, the bet wins but if the sides draw, the stakes are returned. The odds are unsurprisingly low at 1/4 with Bet9ja.

BTTS Predictions

The best home defence comes up against one of the worst attacks here. Manchester United have only conceded an incredible eight league goals at Old Trafford this season. 

Chelsea have hit the back of the net just 36 times in the English top flight this term. Only Wolves, Everton and relegated Southampton have scored fewer.

Since returning to the club Frank Lampard has seen his side fail to score in five of his nine games in charge. Here they will be up against David De Gea. The Premier League Golden Glove winner has kept 17 clean sheets.

As was the case at the other Manchester club on Sunday it looks unlikely for Chelsea to find their scoring form here. NG carries the real value here at 5/4 on Bet9ja

Our Analysis of the Manchester United vs Chelsea

Manchester United come into this clash having had an encouraging campaign under Erik Ten Hag. 

A six-year wait for a trophy ended with the League Cup. A single point from their two remaining fixtures will also see a return to the Champions League next season. There is still the small matter of the FA Cup final with rivals City on June 3rd. 

Chelsea can’t wait for this dreadful season to end. The Blues started the campaign under Thomas Tuchel and soon abandoned the Graham Potter experiment. 

They are now left with club legend Frank Lampard looking after things until the expected arrival of Mauricio Pochettino this summer. 

Lampard has had seven league games in charge. In that time, only rock-bottom Southampton and relegation-threatened Leeds have picked up fewer than the four points his Blues have accumulated.

Manchester United have the players to increase their winning run at home to five and extend their unbeaten Premier League run over Chelsea to 11 games. 

David de Gea will look to match his best-ever clean sheet record of 18. While Casemiro, fresh from netting the winner in his side’s last game, will have fond memories of his last meeting with the visitors. He bagged a late equaliser to salvage a 1-1 draw in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge.

Top Scorers Predictions for Manchester United vs Chelsea

In the goalscorer market, it is a good idea to use a process of elimination. Given the stats above it would not make sense to look at any of the Chelsea players. 

Manchester United’s top scorer Marcus Rashford missed the game against Bournemouth at the weekend because of illness, so he may be absent here too.

Having started the last two games including scoring in the last fixture at Old Trafford, Anthony Martial is expected to keep his place. 

The French international has only scored five league goals compared to Rashford’s 16. However due to his lack of game time Martial’s minutes-per-goal average of 177 is very similar to that of United’s top scorer (172). 

He’s at 8/5 to score anytime with BetKing.

United to Secure Top Four Place And Add to Chelsea’s Blues

The home side are the clear favourites here and will be expected to take care of business against a side very low on confidence. The Red Devils are unbeaten in 27 home games in all competitions winning 23 of them. 

Sunday’s loss to a heavily rotated Manchester City side made it just one win in 10 league games for Chelsea. Expect that to continue here with another home win at Old Trafford.
