Competition: Premier League
Market: Chelsea and Man Utd to draw
Odds: 9/4 @ Bet 365
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho returns to Stamford Bridge to face his former club Chelsea in the Premier League this afternoon, and will be desperate to ensure he avoids defeat to keep the Blues in touching distance in the table.
Hosts Chelsea are currently fifth in the Premier League table with 16 points from eight games, having won back-to-back ahead of today’s clash with Manchester United. At home, Chelsea have won three of their four games in the league this season, and will be considered a real threat by Mourinho when he weighs up what approach to adopt.
As for the visitors, Manchester United find themselves two places and two points worse off than Chelsea in league this season, and have managed just one win from their last five games. The Red Devils are unbeaten in three, however, so they will be confidence.
United’s last away game to a title-chasing side saw them play defensively to grind out a goalless draw. It’s likely they will adopt a similar mentality this afternoon, and Bet 365 are giving odds of 9/4 for the two sides to play out a stalemate as a result.
