Manchester United vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting tips
On Sunday, England are heading for Manchester, where United meet champions Chelsea. For the Red Devils it is a chance to make a big step towards a direct qualification for the Champions League in the coming season. Chelsea, on the other hand, can equal Man United with a threesome at points. With six absolute top teams in England, but only four places for the premier class, especially the direct duels are enormously important.
The Champions League is a good cue, as Manchester United had to play Sevilla FC in the first leg of the knockout stage of the most important international competitive football match on Wednesday. Considered sober, United did not make it to a bad start for the second leg, but it will be dangerous if Sevilla manage an away goal at Old Trafford. In Andalusia, Manchester United have conceded one goal against despite a 25: 6 (!) Chance for Sevilla. Only one of the six shots of the Red Devils then went on the box of the Spaniards. In short, Manchester United’s appearance in Seville was disappointing and Jose Mourinho thanked his keeper David de Gea, who saw at least one shot from each of Sevilla (!) On his box after just one hour.
In fact, the last appearances of Manchester United were no longer the yellow of the egg. In the four games before, Man United had lost 0-2 at Tottenham and 1-0 at Newcastle. Only against the other promoted Huddersfield Manchester United could win 2-0 in the Premier League at home and in FA Cup away. The staff Paul Pogba, who was also in Sevilla not in the starting lineup and should have allegedly with Mourinho overthrown, brings disquiet to the team. In the native Old Trafford the results of Manchester United are still correct. In 18 competitive games in their own stadium this season, there was only one defeat in the derby against Manchester City. Otherwise, there were 15 wins and two draws. Manchester United are currently second in the table with 17 wins and five draws and defeats.
Even champions Chelsea played during the week in the Champions League only draw, but the opponent was called FC Barcelona. A victory for the Blues in the game at home Stamford Bridge would not have been undeserved. Already in the first half, the Londoners met twice in the form of Willian the post. After a good hour, however, the Brazilian’s third attempt should have come. 15 minutes before the end, however, the Catalans punished the almost total carelessness of the Londoners, which ended in a 1-1 final score with a goal by Lionel Messi. Thus, Chelsea must now meet at least once in the second leg at Camp Nou. In order to enjoy Champions League again in the blue part of London in the next season, Chelsea still needs some victories.
The English champions are currently in fourth place in the Premier League, who are the last to qualify for the premier class in the coming season. Tottenham in fifth place has only one fewer points and could overtake Chelsea already on this match day. However, opponents Manchester United is only three points away. Chelsea could have built up a pretty good cushion lately, but in late January and early February there were two straight defeats. And they also had it in them. First Chelsea lost at home to Bournemouth with 0: 3, a few days later, the Blues went down with 1: 4 at Watford. It was not until the last matchday of the Premier League that Chelsea were able to retake a safe 3-0 win over bottom-breaking West Bromwich Albion. In the first leg Chelsea was able to prevail at home against Manchester United just 1: 0. Chelsea lost its last stint at Old Trafford after the blues were unbeaten five times in a row – one win, four draws.
