Chelsea vs. Manchester United Predictions

Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips for Chelsea vs. Manchester United at English Premier League

  • Where: Stamford Bridge, London, England
  • When: Friday, April 5, 03:15 AM

The situation in Chelsea is slightly improving, but still, the season so far has been terrible, and the fans aren’t willing to wait anymore. Sure, the Blues are posting much better results than before, yet that isn’t enough for the army of supporters. United still hopes to reach the fourth position and the UEFA Champions League, but that’s unrealistic for the moment with the way Ten Hag’s unit plays.

Chelsea vs. Manchester United Preview

Chelsea

The Blues haven’t lost for the past five games overall and the previous seven in the Premiership. Now that’s solid, some would say. But three ties and four wins aren’t what the fans expected, particularly 2-2 against Burnely at home this weekend. 

This was the fifth game in a row that saw at least four goals and both teams netting, suggesting that while Chelsea’s attack stabilized and started delivering, the defense is still mediocre without consistency and, some would add, quality.

And it really is like that because since the season began, Chelsea’s back line couldn’t find its groove, let alone create long-term chemistry. In the end, that is the main reason why Pochettino’s team isn’t higher in the standings.

Manchester United

Again, we are going to mention that Erik Ten Hag isn’t the right guy for Manchester. Occasional streaks of success deceive United’s fans, and these periodic bursts are usually followed by a sharp decline in form and results.

A win over Liverpool in the FA Cup was immediately erased with a tie against Brentford on the road, 1-1, causing a flurry of negative comments on the web regarding United’s manager. The reason for that was that with this result, the team’s chances to reach the fourth spot practically vanished. 

Following a fantastic series of six road wins, the Red Devils failed to post a triumph away from Old Trafford for the past two events, losing at the Etihad to City, 3-1 and playing without winners in Brentford.

Chelsea vs. Manchester United Predictions

Given the state of the respective defenses, we are taking both teams to score as the pick here. Chelsea’s backline is terrible, and to be honest, United’s isn’t much better. 

Our verdict: Both teams to score
