For our Premier League predictions today we’re looking at the weekend’s tastiest clash on Sunday, as Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. With Chelsea looking to climb into the top four, and United looking to feign a title challenge, we bring you our Premier League tips, betting info and predictions below.
Chelsea have gone eight games unbeaten in all competitions since Tuchel came in, winning six of those. However they hadn’t really faced a big test until they met Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday, which they won 1-0 thanks to some Giroud magic. This will be Tuchel’s first big test in the league though, with the result having a huge bearing on our Premier League predictions going forward. The defense has been solid under the German coach, as Chelsea have only shipped two goals in the eight games that Tuchel has taken charge of.
Since their shock loss to relegation doomed Sheffield United at the end of last month, Manchester United have gone seven games unbeaten in all competitions. However, there have been a few draws in there, including a disappointing 1-1 against struggling West Brom. Bruno Fernandes is still the standout talent in the side, with the likes of Martial needing a change in role if he’s to improve. Our Premier League predictions for the season put United in the top four, but see the title challenge fading fast. They do tend to step up for the big games, so let’s see what the weekend brings.
When these sides met in October, it was one of United’s famous 0-0 games against top four opposition – an Old Trafford clash to forget. Prior to that, Lampard’s Chelsea knocked United out of the FA Cup back in July. these sides last met in the league at Stamford Bridge almost a year ago to the day, with united running out 2-0 winners on the day. It’s the first time Tuchel has met Solsjaer’s United as Chelsea manager, but he has met them four times in the Champions League, with each manager holding two wins apiece in the personal H2H.
Below we’ve provided you with the results from the last five fixtures between Chelsea and Manchester United, and below that, three interesting statistical highlights. We’ve used all of this information and more to bring you this Premier League prediction weekend here at BettingTips.net.
Having analysed the above information, our Premier League predictions today point to a Chelsea win on Sunday…maybe
Chelsea are undoubtedly the team in bett form at the moment, however they have yet to face their first big Premier League test under Thomas Tuchel. The Blues have the added advantage of having played their Champions League tie on Tuesday, while United have to host Real Sociedad on Thursday evening. Thankfully, Solskjaer’s side have a 4-0 lead, so he can afford to rest almost all of his key players. What’s key to this is Chelsea’s defense vs United’s proven hesitancy against better opposition this season. United have had four 0-0 draws this season, with three of those being against direct top four opposition (the fourth one was against Arsenal). If we combine that stat with Chelsea’s recent defense, the logical tip for this one is a home clean sheet at odds of 3 with Bet365.
