Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Preview
Venue: Old Trafford
Watch: Sky Sports Premier League
Manchester United will be trying to be do everything they can to chase down their rivals, Manchester City, as they aim to defeat Chelsea this Sunday. Jose Mourinho took the questionable decision to leave out key players such as Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial within their recent fixture against Sevilla. However, the Red Devils may have rested these players for this particular fixture, as it will probably decide who finishes second in the Premier League this year.
Chelsea on the other hand, will be using this fixture to catch up with their Manchester rivals, as they sit just three points below the Red Devils. The Blues are currently in magnificent form considering they nearly left Stamford Bridge victorious against Barcelona, if it wasn’t for Andreas Christensen’s error. Furthermore, in Chelsea and Manchester United’s last meeting, Alvaro Morata headed the Blues to victory in a convincing display by the Blues.
- Ibrahimovic has returned to training for Manchester United this week, therefore, he may be in contention for selection ahead of this fixture.
