Reason For Manchester United vs Chelsea Predictions

  • Manchester United have seen three or more goals in all seven competitive fixtures this season.
  • Four of Chelsea’s five Premier League games have featured three or more goals.
  • Chelsea have drawn four of their last five competitive matches.
  • Bruno Fernandes has scored in each of his last four appearances for Manchester United.

Red Devils continue resurgence in Paris

If last weekend’s 4-1 thrashing of Newcastle helped to repair some of the pain inflicted by Spurs before the international break, then Manchester United’s midweek success in Paris was akin to a successful faith healing.

The Red Devils put in a stunning performance against last season’s Champions League finalists PSG, outplaying them for the majority of the match and coming away with a well deserved 2-1 victory to significantly boost their chances of qualifying from the toughest group in the tournament.

They have now won five of their last six games in all competitions, but while the attacking side of their game is flourishing there are still major questions at the back. Axel Tuanzebe was very impressive in Paris, but Manchester United have still conceded in five of their seven competitive matches and have shipped 13 goals in total.

Blues plagued by defensive problems

Chelsea have exactly the same problem, although this wasn’t exactly evident in their frustrating goalless draw against Sevilla in midweek. However, in the Premier League they have conceded nine goals in five games, including a shambolic defensive performance last weekend that saw them draw 3-3 with Southampton.

The Blues have only won two of their five league matches so far and have twice played out 3-3 draws. In all competitions they have only won one of their last five, and despite Timo Werner’s goalscoring success last weekend it’s clear that Frank Lampard has a lot of work to do to turn this squad into title challengers.

Goals galore at Old Trafford

What we can expect from this game, like so many Premier League matches this season, is plenty of goals. All seven of Manchester United’s competitive matches this term have produced at least three goals and have averaged a massive 4.28 goals per game.

Chelsea have seen at least three goals in four of their five top flight outings, and their average sits at an even more impressive 4.4 goals per game. With three of the last four meetings between these sides also producing three or more goals, backing the overs looks a great value offering here.

Things could be tight on Saturday though. Chelsea have drawn four of their last five games in all competitions and Manchester United have failed to win both their home matches this season, so we think a high scoring 2-2 draw is a shout for our correct score prediction.

When it comes to a goalscorer prediction, one man stands out in the red of Manchester United. Bruno Fernandes found the net from the penalty spot once again in midweek to make it a goal in each of his last four games for the Red Devils. The midfielder has scored 11 goals in 18 Premier League appearances since arriving in January, so backing him to find the net again is our choice.

Manchester United injuries and team news

Anthony Martial will return to the sidelines to serve the second of his three game suspension, while Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard are both ruled out through injury.

Edinson Cavani is still lacking in match fitness but could make the bench, and with Mason Greenwood a doubt Daniel James may have to partner Marcus Rashford up front. Axel Tuanzebe could start again after an impressive midweek performance, with a three-man defence expected.

Chelsea injuries and team news

New goalkeeper Edouard Mendy will remain between the sticks for Chelsea after returning from injury, with Billy Gilmour the only injury doubt for Frank Lampard.

Timo Werner is expected to lead the line again, ahead of a trio of Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Christian Pulisic. Thiago Silva’s experience could be crucial at the back for Chelsea.
