06/12 Accurate Football predictions: Manchester United vs Chelsea

Betting Tips

Midweek action returns to Old Trafford on Wednesday night as Manchester United and Chelsea resume their bitter rivalry in a thrilling Premier League matchup between two faltering titans of the English game. Over the weekend, the Red Devils’ problems worsened when they lost 1-0 to Newcastle United, but Mauricio Pochettino’s team salvaged some blue dignity by defeating Brighton & Hove Albion 3-2.

Manchester United vs Chelsea

After winning the league back-to-back games, Manchester United appeared to be gaining momentum, but they have had a poor week. A disastrous 3-3 draw with Galatasaray resulted in a wasted lead that virtually knocked United from the Champions League.

They would then respond to that with a dismal display in a 1-0 loss to Newcastle the following weekend, as they were unable to generate much offensive play. In that game, Erik ten Hag’s team managed just 0.48 expected goals (xG) and just one goal on target. They would concede four easy-scoring opportunities and 2.50 xG to the Magpies on defense.

Even though a player was sent off shortly before the half, Chelsea managed to overcome Brighton 3-2 at home. Before Conor Gallagher received his second yellow card, the Blues led 2-1. Chelsea managed to hold on for a crucial three points despite Brighton’s late onslaught thanks to a second-half penalty kick from Enzo Fernandez.

With the victory, Pochettino’s team moves up to 10th place with a 5-4-5 record that is good for 19 points. Additionally, they have won three of their past five games in all competitions. Actually, this season, the visitors are doing better when they play away from Stamford Bridge.

Verdict

Chelsea are in much better spirits as they head to Old Trafford after defeating Brighton 3:2, even if they were reduced to 10 men in the second half. The Blues have only lost two of their past eight EPL games (W4, D2, L2), moving them up to tenth place in the competition.

The team led by Mauricio Pocchetno has played in several high-scoring away games recently; in their past three travel games, they have either won 4:1 or lost 4:1. Following back-to-back wins against Spurs and Burnley, a humiliating loss against Newcastle ensued. Chelsea’s last 12 away Premier League games have had BTTS and over 3.5 goals scored.

These teams’ recent encounters have also been interesting, with BTTS coming the last four matches. United ended a run of three consecutive 1:1 draws between these rivals in May with a decisive 4:1 victory. Additionally, five of the last seven games at Old Trafford have resulted in BTTS.

A back-and-forth match with goals at either end is to be expected given the previous performances of both clubs. Although BTTS seems to be the best option, don’t be shocked if on Wednesday there are three goals or more scored.

Tip: Over 2.5 Goals / BTTS (YES)
