Prediction, Odds & Betting tips for the Manchester United vs. Chelsea Premier League match

  • When: Thursday, April 28, 8:45 pm CET
  • Where: Old Trafford, Manchester, England

Manchester United meets Chelsea this Thursday in a match that will tell us a lot about the battle for the fourth place in the English Premier League standings. If the Red Devils lose, they are pretty much out of the race for the UEFA Champions League. On the other side, if Chelsea loses, the Blues might wind up in an uncomfortable position with five games to go. The stakes are high, a bit higher for the Red Devils than for the Blues, but that won’t change the situation on the field too much. Both teams will be after the win.

Manchester United vs. Chelsea Preview

Manchester United

The Red Devils have been terrible in the worst possible moment of the campaign. With three losses in the last four games, Rangnick’s boys have deteriorated their chances of reaching the UEFA Champions League next year. When looking a bit further back in the past, they have only two wins in the previous 10 events across all the competitions.

The defense is problematic for the Red Devils, who kept clean sheets only once in those 10 games. That issue escalated in the last three events, as United allowed at least two goals in each, nine in total.

After beating Norwich at home, 2-0, they lost two derbies, against Liverpool at Anfield, 4-0, and then against Arsenal at Emirates, 3-1. This was very frustrating for the fans who went after their favorites on social networks.


The Blues are hanging on well, having seven wins and three defeats in the previous 10 games. They managed to reach the FA Cup finals and are about the meet Liverpool for the trophy. Chelsea did suffer elimination from the UEFA Champions League against Real, but they gave everything to avoid it and failed.

Tuchel’s unit lost one game in the previous five, winning the remaining four. In three of them, the defense did a good job protecting its net, while the attackers scored twice or more in all but one of those events.

When looking at the games on the road, Chelsea is near perfection. Right now, the Blues have nine consecutive victories with five clean sheets, and in the latest seven, this unit netted two or more hits.

Manchester United vs Chelsea Head to Head

The first meeting of the year at Stamford saw a draw, 1-1. The efficiency of the games when these two sides have met in the last two years is low, and only one of the previous five head-to-head matchups was with three or more goals.

Manchester United vs. Chelsea Prediction

United won’t wait here because they have to go out and win all three points. That will for sure open the game and provide chances on both ends, meaning that we should see lots of goals. Chelsea plays its best football when they have open space ahead of their forwards, which will be the case here. Our pick here is for both teams to score due to all the circumstances explained above.

Our verdict: Both teams to score
