Draw 2-2

Reason for tip

United have found the net in their last six Premier League away games, but are just as difficult to trust as Chelsea, so there is a strong chance the clash could end in a high-scoring draw.

Entertainment almost guaranteed at the Bridge

While the home fans have become frustrated with what looks like being another mediocre league season at Chelsea, there is no doubt that Stamford Bridge is the place for entertainment these days.

There have been 26 goals in the last five games at the London venue and there looks a good chance that a similar game will be witnessed when Manchester United head to the capital on Thursday.

The Blues’ latest frustration came on Saturday when they were held to a 2-2 draw by struggling Burnley, even though the Clarets had to play the entire second half with just ten men.

Defensive errors never seem to far away and while that combined with a strong attack makes for entertaining football, it means it is difficult to put much faith in them, particularly as United are unlikely to hold back, so there is a strong chance this will be another game with plenty of goals.

United likely to get on the front foot

The Red Devils will certainly be looking or a more convincing performance than the one they put in at Brentford on Saturday.

Erik ten Hag’s side were fortunate to take a late lead through Mason Mount and as the Bees bounced back with an equaliser, United were still fortunate to claim a point.

But that was the sixth successive away game that they have found the net in the Premier League and they should relied upon to score against Chelsea, who have kept just one clean sheet in their last 11 league games.

It could well be that as neither team are particularly trustworthy, they may be difficult to separate, so a 2-2 draw is an appealing correct-score bet.

Palmer is the star of the show

One player who has been a real star for Chelsea in recent months is Cole Palmer, who has shone since his arrival from Manchester City.

He scored both goals in the draw against Burnley and the nonchalance with which he netted his penalty showed his high confidence level.

That took his season’s tally to 13 and he should be expected to boost that when the Red Devils visit Stamford Bridge on Thursday.
