Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea and Man Utd to draw
Odds: 1/1 @ William Hill
Chelsea and Manchester United meet at Stamford Bridge this afternoon in a game with much more importance for the visitors than defending champions. United need a win to boost their top-four hopes, while a resurgent Chelsea are aiming for a top-half place currently.
The Blues are 13th in the Premier League table after 24 games, but are enjoying much-improved form under interim manager Guus Hiddink. Chelsea are coming off the back of three wins and five draws in their last eight, but they won’t underestimate Manchester United, who have also turned a corner with results.
United have won three of their last five games in the league ahead of today’s meeting, and desperately need all three points to boost their hopes of a top-four spot in the table. Currently 5th and potentially eight points behind if fourth-placed Arsenal win, the Red Devils have to deliver.
However, this fixture has resulted in stalemates of late, with the two sides having drawn three of their last six Premier League head-to-heads, cancelling each other out in their previous meeting earlier this season.
And with Chelsea and United sharing 15 draws between them in the league this campaign, William Hill are giving odds of 1/1 for the duo to draw today.
