Chelsea v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips 22/10/2022
Chelsea takes on Man United at Stamford Bridge this Saturday evening and both sides head into the encounter in decent form, so it’s time for our Chelsea v Manchester United Premier League Betting Tips. The Blues remain unbeaten under new manager Graham Potter and the West Londoners have sealed some impressive recent results in this run. United are also building form as Erik Ten Hag finally looks to imprint his style on an improving Red Devils side. These sides are evenly matched this season, which could produce an enticing contest. This fixture kicks off at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday and it will be shown live on Sky Sports.
Form and Team News
Chelsea extended their unbeaten run under Potter to seven matches after a 0-0 midweek draw at Brentford. The Blues won their previous five matches, including wins to nil in their last four against AC Milan, Wolves and Aston Villa. Man United have put together a five-match unbeaten run in all competitions and Ten Hag’s side beat Tottenham 2-0 at home last time out. The Red Devils have also kept clean sheets in their last three after a 0-0 draw with Newcastle and a 1-0 win over Omonia Nicosia.
Regarding team news, Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher is doubtful with a knock. N’Golo Kante, Reece James and Wesley Fofana are ruled out. For United, Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial could return to the squad after being side-lined through injury. The match comes too soon for the injured Aaron Wan Bissaka, Brandon Williams, Axel Tunzabe and Donny van de Beek.
Match Winner Betting
With these sides in similar form, a close-run match is anticipated between Chelsea and Man United. At present, Chelsea appears to be the favourites due to their home advantage. The Blues have won four of their last five home matches in all competitions, including their last two in a row. There are still good odds for a Chelsea home win this weekend and Betfred has the best value at 23/20. United are also strong on the road and can give the Blues a tough match in West London. The Red Devils have won five of their last six away in all competitions and SBK are offering 13/5 returns for another United win on the road. However, as both sides rarely lose, a draw is likely to be the best bet on Saturday. In addition, the last four matches between Chelsea and United have ended in draws so we are tipping another stalemate. Bet365 will provide the best odds here at 13/5.
Despite Chelsea and Man United keeping clean sheets regularly in recent matches, both sides have shown an eye for goal this season. Chelsea has scored at least once in all six of their home matches this season and United have struck in their last six away matches. Due to this, we are tipping both teams to score at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. The last two encounters between these sides have also ended in 1-1 scorelines so there is decent value on SBK’s 14/19 odds.
Anytime Goal scorer Bet Tips
As we expected goals to come at Stamford Bridge, there is some additional value in the anytime goalscorer markets. First, Man United’s summer signing Anthony has made a strong start to his career in Manchester. The Brazilian striker has three goals this season and has scored in two of his last three away matches. At 18/5, offered by Unibet, another Anthony strike comes with good value. However, Chelsea’s Mason Mount has rediscovered his top form under Potter recently. The English midfielder scored a brace at Aston Villa last weekend and we are backing the in-form Blues player to score against United. A Mount anytime goal comes with decent value and William Hill will return 17/5.
This Chelsea vs Man United clash is expected to be one of the Premier League picks of the weekend. Both sides come into the contest in strong form and neither side will want to give up ground to a potential top-four rival. A tight match could unfold at the Bridge.
