Chelsea vs Man United prediction and odds: Romelu Lukaku back to haunt his former club

255

Thomas Tuchel will be looking for Chelsea to maintain their form and continue their early dominance in the Premier League when they welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Chelsea are the heavy favourites here at 11/20 with Grosvenor Sport while United are longshots at 5/1 while a draw is 13/4.

Unless their is a seven-goal swing in goal difference between them and Man City, Chelsea will remain top regardless of the result but they will want to regain their four-point lead just to get some breathing space against title challengers Liverpool.

With United close to confirming Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager, their caretaker manager Michael Carrick has the challenge of facing the most in-form side in the Premier League.

The Red Devils are in desperate times with the side failing to meet expectations under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer but they could have a strong short-term solution to Rangnick, but they will have to wait until then.

The players, however, will want to impress and making themselves known against the league leaders would be the perfect way to do just that.

They will have a tough task on their hands though.

Team stats

Chelsea boast the second highest average in the Premier League in terms of total corners with 11.4 per league game, behind Southampton. Meanwhile, United average 10.6 total corners per game which is probably why over 10.5 corners is 17/20 with Grosvenor Sport.

Both teams to score is 3/4 but with Chelsea finishing just three of their 12 league matches that way and United the same in seven league matches, I will be backing no on both teams to score at evens.

Player(s) to watch

Romelu Lukaku is still in the process of a comeback and will more than likely feature on the bench, similar to the Juventus match midweek.

However, the striker will be more than determined to not only comeback from injury in style but to haunt his former employers and at 59/50 to score anytime, it is too hard to ignore.

H2H

This will be the 190th meeting between the two sides and it is United with the better overall record with 78 wins to Chelsea’s 54 plus 57 draws.

Last season, both matches finished 0-0 – which is 12/1 and the Blues have not won in their last seven league meetings.
