Chelsea vs Man United: Tradition Tells Us 7/5 on Home Side is not to Be Missed
Reigning Premier League champions Chelsea play host to title contenders Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
Games such as this one are always tough to predict but a deeper look into the team’s form, head-to-head results and overall playing approach this season can offer some rather revealing information.
Chelsea are enduring a tough season which saw Antonio Conte’s side lose some of its grit and character from last season. The Blues are struggling to produce a result due to the fact the Italian manager is pushing his men to the limit across different competitions which wasn’t the case last term when Chelsea only had Premier League to worry about.
On the other side, Jose Mourinho is determined to continue his ‘second season’ success and has his eyes set on the main prize. Still, in contention for the Premier League trophy behind leaders Manchester City, United would in normal circumstances be expected to launch a full-fire attack at Stamford Bridge. Still, it’s unlikely to happen as Mourinho keeps devaluing his side’s attacking potential by adopting a more cautious and pragmatic approach – especially when top-four contending matches are concerned.
And with recent history telling us the home side holds a firm upper hand – with last three matches between the two sides getting won by hosts – we are prone to back Chelsea at 7/5 at the Sun Bets to outdo Manchester United.
