The big game of the weekend comes from Old Trafford in the Premier League this weekend, as league leaders Chelsea head north to take on Manchester United. The Blues have been experts under the guidance of Jose Mourinho in taking points off title rivals, and bookmakers have installed them as 6/4 favourites to take the victory in the game.

Chelsea have kept clean sheets in their last two visits to Old Trafford in the league and their defence has been improving all season as they have conceded just the two goals in their last six matches played in all competitions now. Will their back line be able to remain intact against United’s firepower?

Radamel Falcao has still only been playing a bit part role at the club since his move there on loan, and Robin van Persie still looks to be a shadow of his former self. With Wayne Rooney out on the sidelines through suspension, this could be a great time for Chelsea to roll into Old Trafford and take at least a point off Louis van Gaal’s men.

Chelsea have scored two or more goals in all but one of their league matches this season, a tremendous return and they still produced two victories in the last without hitman Diego Costa, who is likely to be missing for this one. Can Jose Mourinho take Chelsea to a massive three points away from home?

If Chelsea do beat Manchester United, then online betting site Paddy Power will refund losing bets on the first goalscorer, last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast markets. The money back will come as a free bet up to £100 on the insured markets.

Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Preview

Can the Red Devils be the first side to beat Chelsea this season? It would be a huge fillip for Manchester United if they can take down the Champions Elect. Untied start the match ten points behind leaders Chelsea, and will be so keen to close the gap, if not for title ambitions, but at least for the aim of a top four finish. But will it be the tactical nous of Jose Mourinho which scuppers Louis van Gaal’s men?

There is a great money back special running at online betting site Ladbrokes for this game. If both teams score in Man Utd v Chelsea, then the Ladbrokes will refund as free bets, all losing stakes on the Correct Score, First Goalscorer and Scorecast markets. The maximum refund up for grabs is £25. New customers registering an account with Ladbrokes can get up to a free £100 bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Tips

Jose Mourinho as pretty much proven himself time and time again that he is the tactical expert when it comes to picking up points against potential title rivals. Chelsea just have the knack of coming through games like this and with six wins in their last six matches played in all competitions, they have form on their side as well to take to Old Trafford with them. They may well be without Diego Costa though, so the loss of their goalscoring machine may hurt them. Back up Loic Remy sustained a knock in the Champions League during the week too. So will the responsibility of leading the line fall to Didier Drogba?

It’s not likely that Chelsea will be too open in this one, they usually try and shut up shop on the road against bigger teams. The Blues have kept clean sheets in their last two Premier League matches at Old Trafford, so are they backable to win to nil maybe? Especially with Costa out, the influence of Cesc Fabregas is going to be huge for Chelsea, as the Spaniard has been involved in eight goals in eight league games for the Blues. They need him to create chances. In just one of their Premier League matches this season have Chelsea failed to score two or more goals and that was in a 1-1 draw at the Etihad against Man City.

The Red Devils have been doing alright at home in terms of results. They are still waiting for their first away win of the term after a draw at the Hawthorns against West Brom on Monday, but they have won their last three at Old Trafford. They haven’t been the easiest of wins, they have ridden their luck and have had to dig in hard. Why they are vulnerable is because of their back line, which looks pretty terrible. They have only managed two clean sheets this season and have shipped nine goals in their last four. There’s little leadership, understanding or quality back there, so that could open the door for a Both Teams To Score wager.

United’s strengths are going forward. Wayne Rooney is suspended for this, but they can still call on Radamel Falcao and Robin van Persie who are at a quote of 7/4 in the anytime goalscorer market. The latter looks well below his best though, so perhaps it will be time for Falcao to shine. Their most influential player by a mile is Angel Di Maria who has assisted a goal in four of his last five league matches for the Red Devils. Manchester United have won only six of their last 22 Premier League matches against Chelsea, so they are rightly underdogs for this one. The last two meetings in the league at Old Trafford going under 2.5 goals and you get the feeling that as much as they’d like to topple the league leaders, they’d probably settle for not getting beaten.

Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Odds

Chelsea 7/5, Man Utd 9/5 Draw 12/5

Manchester United v Chelsea Predictions

The Blues are favourites and they have proven themselves in matches like this, at least in avoiding defeat. Could be worth considering a 4/6 draw no bet on the Blues for a bit of coverage. The problems of Untied will be at the back and how vulnerable they will be to Chelsea’s natural counter attacking away from home in big games. That could prove to be costly to them, and look under 2.5 goals, as three of the last four meetings in all competitions between these have gone under.

West Brom v Manchester United Betting Preview

The Baggies have never taken a home win over the Red Devils in the Premier League, but there is a first time for everything, the home fans will be thinking. The Baggies go as underdogs for the match, and their fate will be down to how quiet they can keep the powerful United attack. Will Louis van Gaal be able to keep the Manchester United revival going a bit longer?

Pick your own money back special with online bookmaker Paddy Power for Monday’s Premier League clash at the Hawthorns. Customers can select their own refund trigger from Angel Di Maria scoring anytime, Radamel Falcao scoring first, a drawn match or a goal scored in the last five minutes of the game. If the selected refund trigger is activated, then Paddy Power will refund all losing First Goalscorer, Last Goalscorer, Correct Score & Scorecast singles on that match as a free bet.

West Brom v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Baggies seemed to finally have gotten their season going when they took back to back league wins against Spurs and Burnley. Those are their only two victories of the season in the top flight, and while they lost 2-1 at Anfield last time out, they were a bit unlucky to do so. They have had far improved performances as the season has worn on, and a bit of pluck and spirit could see them get at the United back line which is far from perfect. West Brom scored on their travels to White Hart Lane and Anfield recently, so they should be able to convert back on home soil against United. Both Teams To Score in the match looks a solid bet to roll with and is quoted at a price of 4/6 with online bookmaker Paddy Power.

If they can get ahead, they could hang on, as United have scored just one of their thirteen goals in the last 30 minutes of games. Saido Berahino is enjoying a profitable season in front of goal, having scored six in nine competitive appearances. He has scored all but one of them at the Hawthorns and he is up as a 5/2 shot in the anytime goalscorer market. The Baggies haven’t gotten a lot of chance out of playing Premier League matches on a Monday, winning just two of their previous 18 (L9 D7). While they may be backable to avoid defeat, the stats don’t suggest a win, because they have never triumphed at home over United in the Premier League. The Baggies have lost six (D1) of their seven previous EPL games against the Red Devils at home.

The natural tendency to look for in this is goals, because it should be a high scoring match up. Eight of the last ten between them have gone over 2.5 goals, so that looks a sound bet. United are on the up, having won their last two league matches back to back and have posted three wins in their last four. Their last two victories have come by a 2-1 scoreline, and a Manchester United 2-1 Correct Score wager is trading at a price of 8/1 with online bookmaker Paddy Power. United have returned a healthy 11 goals in their last four matches in the top flight, so no-one can question their attacking power. They aren’t great at the back however, and their recent back to back wins have been achieved courtesy of a fair degree of luck. Going forward Robin van Persie has four goals and two assists in his last seven Premier League appearances against West Brom and Angel Di Maria has scored three and assisted three goals for United in his five English top flight appearances so far.

West Brom v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United 8/11, Draw 3/1, West Brom 4/1

West Brom v Manchester United Predictions

The visitors are the favourites and it’s hard to argue with that on balance, just because of the weight of their attack. Their defence can’t be backed to keep a clean sheet though, so take an option of both teams to score in the game as well as the game producing a high return over 2.5 goals. A win may be too big of an ask for the Baggies, and while they can threaten United, the visitors will likely have too much punch up top for the home side to deal with.

Rafael (Manchester United)

Manchester United v Everton Betting Preview

Both of these have been so inconsistent this season it is hard to back either with much confidence. Do you stick with home advantage, or go for the bigger value in the Toffees with their leaky defence to spring a surprise at Old Trafford? United are looking to win back to back wins for the first time this season, while Everton will defending an unbeaten away record this term.

There is a great chance to double or treble your winning odds on the First Goalscorer market at online bookmaker Betfred. Back a successful first goalscorer selection in the game and if that players goes on to net a second then you will be paid out double odds. If he nets a hat trick in the game after opening the scoring, betfred will treble your original quote on him. New customers registering an account with online bookmaker Betfred can get double the odds and a £25 free matched bet as a welcome bonus.

Manchester United v Everton Betting Tips

Much more is needed from both of these to get their seasons going. United have posted just the two wins this season in a W2 D2 L2 record, boosted by a home win over West Ham last time out. Louis van Gaal’s men were lucky to get the three points there though, the Hammers gifting them two goals before United were let off the hook from an incorrect call from the linesman ruling out a genuine late equalising strike from Sam Allardyce’s men. Wayne Rooney picked up a red card in the game for a professional foul on Stewart Downing, so will be out. That will give Radamel Falcao the opportunity to really shine, the Colombian looking for his first Premier League goal. Both he and Robin van Persie are trading at even money in the anytime goalscorer market.

United have won just one of the last five Premier League matches against Everton W1 D1 L3, so it’s not a record, and perhaps not a price that is going to attract punters to back them this week. United lost their home opener against Swansea this season, and since the start of last season, they have lost eight home games in the top flight, which is as many as they had lost in the previous five campaigns. United aren’t good at the back, so expect the game to go over 2.5 goals, and would also comfortably back both teams to score in the game. They do look a vulnerable side still, but how easy of an afternoon they have will be down to how Everton approach the game.

Everton have won three and lost one of their last five Premier League matches against Manchester United, so have a bit of form going. Unfortunately, they played a defensive game for 90 minutes at Anfield instead of their usual, free-flowing attacking game. It earned them a point, so Roberto Martinez may go with the same thing here. But the way to beat United really is just to attack them. It is understable for apside who have shipped fourteen goals in their first six games to be cautious on the road. They are unbeaten away from Goodison this season, and have only conceded three goals on their travels. But the Toffees have have dropped more points from winning positions than anyone else in the top flight this season (7) but have won five and lost just one of their last eight away games.

Manchester United v Everton Betting Odds

Manchester United 4/6, Draw 3/1,Everton 4/1

Manchester United v Everton Predictions

You could make a case for either of these winning the game. United’s star studded attack should get chances against a flimsy Everton defence, but then the Toffees have their own firepower and threats too. A high scoring draw is probably a good option to consider, but would avoid the match outright because of lack of value and go over 2.5 goals or both teams to score.

Louis Van Gaal (Holland)

Manchester United v West Ham Betting Preview

This may be a case of not getting sucked into a West Ham revival and full Manchester United demise. The Red Devils are trading as heavy odds-on favourites for the win in this one, as they will look for the sanctuary of Old Trafford again. Despite this being United’s worst start to a season since 1989/90, the Hammers have been annual strugglers at Old Trafford and may not be able to capitalise.

Online bookmaker Coral have a great promotion to take advantage of if you are looking at the Correct Score market for this one. If your selection in the Correct Score & Scorecast markets are winning at the 85th minute, but then get undone by a late goal, then the bookmaker will refund your win singles as a free bet up to £25!

Manchester United v West Ham Betting Tips

United have to react from that shock loss last week at Leicester don’t they? It wasn’t all bad for them because they did open up a 3-1 lead in the game and if that controversial penalty hadn’t been given away to pull Leicester back, would the story have ended up differently. The positive for United is that they have scored seven goals in their last two games and have the firepower to send this meeting with West Ham comfortably over 2.5 goals. The downside to United is that they are terribly top heavy and have so little substance at the back, that they are likely to give up goals. They have conceded eight already, which is their highest total since shipping 10 in their opening five in the 2001/02 season.

United’s only win of the season so far came at Old Trafford, when they brushed aside a limp QPR 4-0 and you are going to be eying up the usual suspects in the Anytime Goalscorer market, from Falcao and Robin Van Persie at 4/5, to Wayne Rooney out at even money. Manchester United have taken 31 points from their last 11 Premier League matches against West Ham, so again, clear ascendancy in the betting markets for them, and they don’t appear to be in any inherent danger of losing this one.  They have won the last seven home games in a row (in all competitions) against the Hammers, just to add extra weight to the Red Devils. Something has to go right for them soon.

West Ham showed all sorts of uncharacteristic positivity under Sam Allardyce in taking down Liverpool 3-1 at the Boleyn Ground last weekend. The Hammers played an up-tempo, passionate game and weren’t afraid to throw bodies forward. But from a betting perspective it is important to not get carried away from things like that, because the Hammers are heading out of town, they’ll play a bit more conservatively. They still haven’t posted a clean sheet for the season which is likely to put them in huge danger against the fire power that United can produce. The Hammer’s took a win at Crystal Palace and a draw at Hull in their two away games so far. Toughest road game so far by a mile.

Manchester United v West Ham Betting Odds

Man Utd 1/3, Draw 4/1, West Ham 7/1

Manchester United v West Ham Predictions

West Ham’s poor history at Old Trafford is likely to trip them up in this one. The Hammers were able to bully a very poor Liverpool back line last weekend, but they didn’t have to concern themselves with as much firepower coming against them as they will on Saturday. United have the players to put this one to bed, in a game which is likely to go over 2.5 goals.

Leicester v Manchester United Betting Preview

The Foxes are next in the firing line of the new Manchester United attacking force. The Red Devils crushed a weak QPR at Old Trafford last weekend for their first win of the season. Louis van Gaal’s men will get a much tougher test at the King Power Stadium and they may not have everything their own way. The Foxes have already taken points off Everton and Arsenal.

The Red Devils are favourites for this one at ONnline Betting Site Paddy Power, who are running a Pick Your Own Money Back Special for the game. Choose from Juan Mata scoring anytime, Wayne Rooney scoring first, the match ending in a draw or a goal in the last five minutes, and if your trigger is activated, you will get lost stake refunds on the First/Last Goalscorer, Correct Score and scorecast markets.

Leicester v Manchester United Betting Tips

The Foxes may represent a bit of value perhaps to grind out a draw in this one. Impressive points against Everton and Arsenal have seen people take notice of the newly promoted side. There is a big difference in quality between them and QPR who United beat so easily last week. The only loss the Foxes have suffered this season has been against Chelsea, which is forgivable. The question really is whether or not Leicester have the punch up top to push on for wins against the big clubs. They don’t lack fight, they don’t lack organisation and spirit, but is that touch in the final third of the pitch there for them?

Leicester have scored just one goal in their last eight Premier League matches against United and lost the last nine in a row against them. Not a good record then and it makes it hard to back them for a win. They posted their first league win of the season over Stoke last weekend and that was at a side who had just beaten Man City. Given the attack that they are are going to facing on Sunday, their defence is going to have to work harder than ever to get any points on the board in this one.

So Manchester United are on a nine match Premier League winning streak against Leicester, and Wayne Rooney has scored in both of his Premier League appearance against the Foxes. Put him in the picture again alongside Angel Di Maria, Robin van Persie and Radamel Falcao then you are spoiled for choice in the anytime goalscorer market. Let’s not forget that beating QPR heavily isn’t a sign that you are Premier League title candidate, but the Red Devils must have taken confidence from their first win of the season.

United have gone four away games in the top flight without a win now, the last time they went five was back in 2001. Already this season, United have used a league high 26 players, which proves that they are still trying to find their way. While they have huge quality going forward now, they do look pretty poor at the back. Another stat which may give Leicester hope is that United have won just four of their last 17 Premier League matches played on a Sunday.

Leicester v Manchester United Betting Odds

Manchester United 4/6, Draw 3/1, Leicester 4/1

Leicester v Manchester United Predictions

The Foxes have poor form against United, but they have fought for everything this season. They aren’t going to be walkovers like QPR were, that’s for sure. United are still to really be tested and their patience may come under scrutiny here. United are still good enough to back for the win, but don’t expect it to be a goal fest from them again.

19th September 2014 / Lee - Category: Premier League Betting


The Red Devils finally got their season going with a 4-0 victory over QPR on the weekend, their first league victory under Louis van Gaal. New loanee Radamel Falcao made a cameo appearance off the bench, but didn’t score in the match. This weekend, Manchester United will go up another of this season’s newly promoted clubs in the shape of Leicester.

Online betting site Ladbrokes are offering up an early price of 11/1 that the Red Devils will post a win by four goals or more against the Foxes, to keep things happy at the Theatre of Dreams. Can the new, impressive attack deliver another rout? While QPR were such easy pickings for United, they will probably have a tougher time of things against the Foxes when they head off to the King Power stadium on Sunday.

Leicester have already played Everton, Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League and haven’t conceded more than two goals in a match. Indeed, Chelsea were the only side to beat them by more than one goal, so Louis van Gaal’s men will go up against a relatively sturdy Leicester defence. Naturally Nigel Pearson’s men are going to be underdogs for the match (21/4) with United as 4/6 odds on favourites with online betting site Ladbrokes, who offer up to a free £100 bet as a welcome bonus.

Paddy Power

The Colombian hitman will get the chance to make his debut for Manchester United on the weekend, as the Red Devils host Harry Redknapp’s QPR at Old Trafford. Since the 2009/10 season, Falcao has netted a phenomenal 104 goals in 139 appearances in European club football (FC Porto, Atletico Madrid and Monaco combined).

United will be hoping that Falcao, despite not playing a full 90 minutes since mid-January because of a knee injury, carries on that form. Many people saw the high priced loan deal as a move of desperation by new United boss Louis van Gaal, as he it still waiting for his first league win of the season after a loss against Swansea and draws against Sunderland and Burnley.

While United clearly need improvements at the back and in midfield, the boss will be hoping that deficiencies there will be covered up by the extra attacking threat brought in. Falcao is trading as 3/1 in the First Goalscorer Market against QPR on Sunday, and is up as 4/6 favourite in the anytime goalscorer market at online bookmaker Paddy Power.

How much of an impact with the Colombian make in his Old Trafford debut?

Place a bet on the first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast market for Manchester United v QPR betting, and if Falcao scores at anytime, you will get lost stakes on those markets refunded. This is part of online betting site Paddy Power’s pick your own money back special. The alternatives to selecting Falcao scoring anytime as your trigger, is the game ending in a draw, a goal in the last five minutes or Wayne Rooney scoring first.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid)

Are Chelsea lining up Cristiano Ronaldo swoop? The rumour has been floating around this week, with Manchester United reportedly also being prepared to offer their former player £300,000 a week to come back to Old Trafford.

Talks of Ronaldo being unhappy in Madrid are the fuel on this fire, reportedly unhappy about the sales of Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria during the summer. Real Madrid are expected to come out and quash all hopes of either Premier League getting their hands on him though. Chelsea allegedly have £60 million set aside somewhere to make a move for Ronaldo when they January transfer window opens.

How much legs is this rumour likely to have? Not a lot. Bookmakers haven’t batted an eyelid really, with online betting site Ladbrokes leaving Chelsea as 8/1 shots to land a Ronaldo coup. That is the price on Ronaldo starting next season with the Blues.

That is the same price as the Portuguese star heading back to Old Trafford, while he can be backed to make a move to Paris St Germain at the start of next season for a mightily long 16/1 shot. The mere speculations about Ronaldo is probably him fishing for a pay rise at the Bernabeu. Ronaldo is holding steady at 1/5 with Ladbrokes that he’ll still be a Real Madrid player come the start of the 2015/16 season.


12th September 2014 / Lee A Jackson - Category: Football News

Rooney-Van Persie (Manchester United)

Manchester United v QPR Betting Preview

Is this the game where things are all going to change for Manchester United. Punters thought that last time out, but the Red Devils stumbled to a draw against Burnley. But having been boosted by the arrival of Radamel Falcao, bookmakers have drawn United into heavy favourites for this one, as much as 2/7 at Paddy Power.

This one is going live on TV, so online bookmaker Paddy Power have a big special running for it, covering the game with their pick your own money back special. Choose from either Falcao scoring anytime, Rooney scoring first, a drawn match or a goal in the last five minutes, and if your selected refund trigger is activated, you will get lost stake refunds on the first/last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast markets.

Manchester United v QPR Betting Tips

So Louis van Gaal is still searching for his first league win with United and it will probably happen here. Forget what has gone before this season and look at the facts. They have won 10 and lost none of their 12 previous Premier League matches against QPR. They have won their last four league matches on the bounce against the Londoners. This has been United’s worst start to a season since 2007/08 (on that occasion taking two points from three games) but they bounced back to win both the Premier League and the Champions League.

So all eyes will be on Radamel Falcao in this one, who has a fantastic scoring record of 104 goals in 139 league appearances in Europe since 2009/10. With Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney, United shouldn’t be struggling for goals. Still, Falcao is 4/6 in the anytime goalscorer market, with Rooney and RVP around even money. United have kept a clean sheet in four of the last five meetings against QPR in all competitions and the Red Devils can be backed at a price of 10/11 at Paddy Power for another one in this latest meeting. This surely isn’t going to go wrong for them is it?

QPR start the match a point ahead of United in the league standings, having won one and lost two of their three openers. The first points of the season came last time out, taking a 1-0 win at home against Sunderland. That strike by Charlie Austin for the R’s is their only goal of the season so far (in all competitions). In their only other away game of the season, QPR were trounced 4-0 at White Hart Lane by Tottenham.  Surprisingly though they have had just two fewer shots than Chelsea have this season, but have scored ten fewer goals than the Blues. Nothing to back in the R’s for this one, as they have won just one of 21 previous away league games against United (D3 L17).

Manchester United v QPR Betting Odds

Manchester United 2/7, Draw 9/2, QPR 10/1

Manchester United v QPR Predictions

Louis van Gaal will have massive, massive questions to answer if United somehow lose this one. There’s going to be no excuse after dipping so heavily into the coffers to boost their squad. It should come together here for three points, giving QPR’s lack of scoring, back United to win to nil.
