Man Utd vs Chelsea Preview & Odds

English Giants Meet

Both Sides Desperately Seeking Win

Manchester United and Chelsea have performed below their usual standards this season. When the English giants meet on Wednesday, both sides desperately want to grab all three points to build momentum. United will also be looking for their first win over a top-ten team in the EPL this season as they host the Blues. In our Man Utd vs Chelsea preview, we’ll take a closer look at the Premier League odds for Wednesday’s match.

Manchester United vs Chelsea

Date, time:
Location: Old Trafford, Manchester, England

Head-to-Head

Man Utd vs Chelsea previews note that five of the last six matches between the teams have finished in draws. Manchester United broke the five-game draw streak with a 4-1 win back in May at Old Trafford as four players got on the scoresheet. Chelsea haven’t won any of their last 11 EPL matches vs. Manchester United, with their last victory coming in 2017.

Manchester United Put in Embarrassing Performance

Manchester United put in a highly disappointing performance on Saturday at Newcastle United. The Red Devils were outshot 22-8, and the level of effort from some of Man United’s best players was abysmal. Erik ten Hag still hasn’t won a match away in the Premier League vs. any team that finished in the top nine places of the EPL last season. United seem to fold when they play big clubs and have grabbed all of their points from the bottom feeders this season.

Even as United are in a crisis, they’re still just five points away from a top four position. The EPL standings currently show that Manchester United are in seventh place, with an 8-6 record. They’re yet to defeat a top-ten side this season at home or away and are the only Premier League team not to draw a match so far.

United have scored just five goals in their last five EPL matches and are on the brink of Champions League elimination. Pressure is mounting on Erik ten Hag, and a home defeat vs. Chelsea could be the proverbial straw that breaks the camel’s back. However, it is unclear if United would be able to recruit any top manager if they sack the Dutchman. On Wednesday, it looks as if Mason Mount, Christian Eriksen, Jonny Evans, Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez will all be out injured.

Chelsea Bounce Back on Sunday

Chelsea took on Brighton on the Premier League schedule on Sunday. Despite Conor Gallagher’s red card, the Blues came away with a 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea midfielder Enzo Fernandez scored two goals in the match, which were his first two in the Premier League. Levi Colwill also scored his first-ever Chelsea goal as two of the Blues’ goals came on headers.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side successfully bounced back from a 4-1 loss at Newcastle the week prior. While Chelsea have lost just one of their last four EPL matches, they’ve conceded 11 goals. All of the teams they’ve faced during that time finished in the top eight last season, and the Blues are 5-4-5 this season. That’s been good enough for 10th place, and they’ll still be two points behind United with a win here.

Chelsea have lost just one of their last five away matches in the EPL and hold a 3-1-2 record on the road this season. They will be missing Gallagher in midfield on Wednesday, as he’s suspended. Meanwhile, Malo Gusto and Ben Chilwell have knocks and are questionable. Trevoh Chalobah, Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana are also out.

Match Analysis & Odds

Manchester United need to steady the ship, as Erik ten Hag’s time seems to be running out. Pundits ripped United’s display at Newcastle, and now the Red Devils are +180 underdogs despite playing at home on Wednesday. Man Utd vs Chelsea previews note that the Blues have won just four EPL games at Old Trafford in the 21st century.

Here, Chelsea are +140 favorites and have done quite well on the road this season. United enter the match with a negative goal difference and have scored just 16 times in 14 games this season. Players who Ten Hag was happy to sell during the Summer, including Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay, have actually been two of United’s best players this season.

In this pick’em, Manchester United pk sits at +110 odds as Chelsea pk comes in at -130. Five of the last six meetings have finished in draws, but one is priced at +260. Chelsea’s last four games have averaged close to six goals per match, and over 2.5, 3 goals display -120 odds for Wednesday’s match.
