Betting Preview: Manchester United vs Chelsea: Draw Likely
Two top-four contenders, Chelsea and hosts Manchester United, meet at the Theatre of Dreams for what could be a deciding game in who finishes in the Champions League places at the end of this Premier League season.
Alongside the North London duo of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Chelsea are fighting for just two spots in the top four of the Premier League with title chasers Liverpool and Manchester City already through to next season’s Champions League football.
The wheels have fallen off Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but he can still steer the Red Devils into the top four at the end of the season.
Solskjaer lost just one of his first 17 games in all competitions since his appointment in December but his Manchester United players are a shadow of themselves going by their results in the last eight games.
The Red Devils have lost six of their last eight games in all competitions ahead of the Chelsea game on Sunday evening.
According to the betting tips from bet365, Manchester United have winning odds of 2.70 while the likelihood of a draw is at the odds of 3.50.
Both sides played a 2-2 draw in the first league meeting of the season held at Stamford Bridge last year and a repeat of that outcome is a big possibility.
Chelsea have lost all four of their away games against the top six in the Premier League and an unlikely win at Manchester United is at the odds of 2.70 according to bet365.
