Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview

Chelsea vs Manchester United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 20th October 2018

Kick-off time – 12:30 GMT

This could be Chelsea’s season again while there are so few people who believe that other than die-hard fans.

Manchester City are odds on favourites to retain the Premier League title again, and Liverpool are considered the only team that can genuinely challenge for the title.

However, the Blues have been impressive this season even though their exploits haven’t been documented as much as Liverpool or Man City.

Fans and teams alike expected the Blues to struggle in transition after naming a new manager, but the players have taken little time to settle into Maurizio Sarri’s style of play.

The Blues have now gone unbeaten in their first 11 games despite having played Liverpool twice and Arsenal once.

It will be interesting to see if the Blues can pile more misery on Jose Mourinho in this game.

Manchester United have gradually fallen out of the race for the Premier League title after a series of poor results, and they seem to still remain in some kind of battle that is affecting their unity.

They currently sit 8th in the Premier League table after 8 games.

They came from two goals down to beat Newcastle last time out and their fans will be hoping that such a performance can become a normal fixture now, however, they have failed to win at Chelsea in their last 8 attempts.

Manchester United have won 3 of their last 4 away games, while Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 11 games in all competitions.

Unsurprisingly, given Manchester United’s poor form and defencive record, Chelsea are currently trading odds-on to come out on top in this game.
