Manchester United v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th February 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 25th February 2.05pm It will be pretty interesting to see what goes down at Old Trafford on the weekend. Both of them had midweek UEFA Champions League action and it also brings together Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte who have had a war of words dragging on between them this season. The three points up for grabs in the fixture are huge in that tight top-four race and Chelsea will be looking to make up ground and draw level on points with the Red Devils with an away victory.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United have had a really good season at home in the Premier League and more often than not are a banker when playing there. Their record on home turf reads W10 D2 L1 and they have won their last two there with a clean sheet as well. Their defence has been tremendous with only the five goals given up at Old Trafford and Manchester United to win to nil with bet365 for this big duel is at 5/2 odds* (Betting Odds taken at 4:30 p.m. on February 21st, 2018).

They have been pretty efficient going forward as well with an average of over two goals per home game behind them and they have taken a clean sheet in 77% of fixtures at Old Trafford. They have won their last three home games in the top flight without having shipped a single goal. However, they looked really poor in a defeat out at Newcastle in their last away game, suffering a 1-0 reverse. It added to the sequence of seven of their last eight games going under 2.5 goals. They will have had a day’s less rest than Chelsea ahead of this one and looking at the recent history between them, under 2.5 goals at Bet365 has some big appeal for the fixture. Romelu Lukaku has scored in his last two home fixtures.

Chelsea News and Form

Antonio Conte produced a tactical masterclass in midweek as Chelsea held Barcelona 1-1 draw at the Bridge against Barcelona. However, back on the domestic scene, the Blues have not been travelling all that well with just the one victory in their last four on the road (D2 L1). In their last away game in the top flight, they went to Vicarage Road to face Watford and put in a shocker of a performance to lose 4-1. Overall this season the Blues have a healthy W7 D3 L3 record away from Stamford Bridge but they have been off the boil away from home recently. Going forward they have returned a healthy average of 1.9 goals per game and they have been leading at half time in six of their thirteen away games. They have Alvaro Morata back from injury and have the added option of Olivier Giroud now and they are both at 9/4 in the bet365 anytime goalscorer market for the game* (Betting Odds taken at 4:30 p.m. on February 21st, 2018). Chelsea really needs the three points to strengthen their position in the top four race this season. But with them only having gone W2 D2 L2 in their last six league games they are going to have to come up with another of those tactical masterpieces of Conte's.

Manchester United v Chelsea Head to Head

Chelsea have been dominating the Premier League head to head for the last few years against the Red Devils. Including their 1-0 success over United at Stamford Bridge earlier this season, the Blues are W5 D4 L1 against the Red Devils in the top flight. At Old Trafford, United won this corresponding fixture last season and they are undefeated in four at home against the Blues, but only W1 D3 against Chelsea in the league there. Both teams have scored in just one of the last seven match ups in all competitions.

Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Man Utd 6/5, Draw 23/10, Chelsea 12/5* (Betting Odds taken at 11:30 p.m. on February 20th, 2018)

Manchester United v Chelsea Predictions

Draw: There is not likely going to be much between the two sides on the day. Both have had some uninspiring results recently in the top flight and this will likely be a tight game at OT. The two sides may just end up cancelling each other out on the day and a 1-1 correct score has plenty to offer.

Man Utd v Chelsea Match Preview and Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th February 2018

Pogba (Manchester United)
When Chelsea and Manchester United faced each other in November, it was Chelsea who took all three points courtesy of strike from an unmarked Alvaro Morata in the 55th minute. Jose Mourinho will be looking for a different result this Sunday when Man Utd play host to Chelsea in the Premier League. The Red Devils may be sitting second in the league, but are only 3 points ahead of the Blues. And Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will want to grab this opportunity to put the teams level on points.

FA Cup Quarter Final Draw Winner Odds & Preview

Football Betting
The action in the FA Cup continues to boil towards a big showdown one way or another. That is because, just as in the fifth round, the front-runners in the outright winner market all managed to avoid each other as the quarter-final draw for this year’s competition was made on Sunday. Manchester City and Manchester United look to have a slight advantage of all the big four left in as they have been drawn at home. City, who are the 7/4 favourites with bet365* (betting odds taken at 00:26 a.m. on February 19th, 2018) would get to host Southampton if they manage to safely navigate their way past Wigan in their fifth-round tie on Monday night. Manchester United will take on fellow Premier League side Brighton at Old Trafford, which is a repeat of the 1983 final. Things get a little tougher for Chelsea though as they have a tricky tie at the King Power against Leicester, while Tottenham will head out on the road to face either Sheffield Wednesday or Swansea. Tottenham will still have to get past League One side Rochdale after the two of them battled out tremendous Cup tie at Spotland on Sunday. After leading at half time, Rochdale were staring defeat in the face after Harry Kane slotted home a late penalty to give Spurs a 2-1 lead. But deep into stoppage time, Dale found an equalizer to get themselves a trip to Wembley.

Chelsea v Barcelona Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th February 2018

Chelsea v Barcelona Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 20th February 7.45pm Lionel Messi and co arrive at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday night for the opening salvo in the Champions League Chelsea v Barcelona duel. This should be some fixture and it will be interesting to see how Chelsea just manage to keep the visitors quiet in the game. The Blues are actually up in the head to head record against Barcelona, but the Premier League side go as the heavy underdogs to get through this tie. Will they still be in at the end of the first leg?

Chelsea News and Form

Can Chelsea at least come out of this with some pride intact in having at least having challenged Barcelona? This is such as bad draw for them, but they have nothing to lose. At the round of sixteen in the Champions League Chelsea are W8 L4 and from their previous round of 16 ties,  this is only the third time that they have been at home in the first leg and from those previous two occasions, Chelsea are W1 D1. The Blues hold a W4 L6 record in two-legged European ties against Spanish sides, most recently losing against Atletico Madrid in the 2013/14 UEFA Champions League semi-finals.

Chelsea v Barcelona 2018 Infographic

Chelsea did collect four points off of Atletico in this season’s group stage though, their away win being their only victory over Spanish opponents in their last six games home and away (D3 L2). Chelsea only managed the three points at home in the group stage, beating Karabakh before being held to ties against Atletico and Roma. In the bet365 correct score market at Barcelona 1-0 is at 15/2* (betting odds taken at 4:46 pm on February 18th, 2018). Chelsea actually have a hugely positive home record of W9 D5 L2 against Spanish visitors and they have lost only one of their last eleven home games in Europe (W6 D4). In all competitions in West London, Chelsea are W3 D3 L1 in their last seven.

Barcelona News and Form

Barcelona are unbeaten in their domestic league campaign and won 2-0 at Eibar on the weekend. They have such a good record in the Champions League, having won 11 of their last thirteen round of 16 ties but interestingly the two defeats that they suffered in that sequence was against English sides (Chelsea and Liverpool). Last season in the round of sixteen they found themselves 4-0 down after the first leg against PSG then back at the Nou Camp launched the comeback of all comebacks to win 6-1. Barcelona's record in away games against English opposition is W9 D8 L15 so it’s not great and they lost their last trip to England as well, suffering a 3-1 loss at Man City in the group stage of last season’s competition. Both teams to score at Bet365 is at 4/6 odds* (betting odds taken at 4:46 pm on February 18th, 2018). Away from home in the group stage this season, Barcelona collected five points but they have lost three of their last seven Champions League away games, going W5 D4 L5 in their last fourteen road games. They have won 13 of their 23 two-legged ties against English sides, but just one of their last seven. Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez have both been in tremendous form and are the joint-favourites at 10/3* (betting odds taken at 4:46 pm on February 18th, 2018) in the Bet365 First Goalscorer market.

Chelsea v Barcelona Head to Head

There have been plenty of meetings between these two. Since 2000 they have met twelve times in the UEFA Champions League and they have generally ended up being pretty dramatic encounters. The last time they were paired up was in the semi finals of the 2011/12 season and it was a pretty dramatic encounter when the Blues famously took a win in the tie 2-1 on aggregate after winning the home leg 1-0. For the second leg at the Nou Camp, the Blues saw John Terry get a red card and Lionel Messi missed a penalty before Fernando Torres broke for the Blues to seal the tie. Of the five previous two-legged contests though Barcelona have won three of them.

Chelsea v Barcelona Betting Odds*

Barcelona even money, Draw 12/5, Chelsea 11/4* (Betting Odds taken on February 16th, 2018 at 5:41 p.m.)

Chelsea v Barcelona Predictions

Chelsea have their hands full there and that’s an understatement. It’s hard to see Barcelona suffering a defeat at the Bridge as Chelsea have looked too fragile lately. With the Blues having struggled for form recently and Barcelona just motoring along, look for the visitors to turn up and take a win to nil.

Chelsea v Hull FA Cup Predictions & Betting Odds – 16th February 2018

Chelsea v Hull Betting Preview - FA Cup 16th February 8.00pm Chelsea will be pretty happy with this draw which affords them the chance to push on to the quarter finals of the FA Cup this season. It would be a welcome step forward for them given all the troubles that they have been having with form recently. Hull are still trying to get themselves free of Championship relegation issues and while they have done well in their cup run, it will be expected to come to an end at Stamford Bridge on the weekend.

Chelsea v Hull FA Cup Betting Tips

The Premier League title is going nowhere near Stamford Bridge this season, and with the Blues having missed out at the semi-final stage of the EFL Cup, this is the only piece of domestic silverware that they have to shoot for. This is a pretty handy dandy draw for them and in the fourth round of the FA Cup, the Blues took down Newcastle 3-0 at Stamford Bridge. However, in the third round, they took on Championship opposition in the form of Norwich and need a penalty shoot-out back at Stamford Bridge to get through that trial. Chelsea haven’t been in great form for a while now, and have been struggling at both ends of the pitch for consistency. Still, they have done well defensively in the bigger picture of the overall season at Stamford Bridge and therefore Chelsea to win to nil at Ladbrokes has immediate appeal at 19/20* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:12 p.m.). Up in the correct score market for the game, the shortest-priced option is going to be on a Chelsea 2-0 victory being churned out. Chelsea carries strong head to head form against Hull too, having won each of their last six against the Tigers. The Blues took a clean sheet in five of those six games. So again, a Chelsea to win to nil option looks a solid bet. Chelsea haven’t lost a game against Hull since a 1988 defeat against them way back in the old Division 2. Chelsea are on a four-match winning streak at Stamford Bridge against the Tigers and each of their last three wins have been by a 2-0 scoreline which looks a good trend. Hull recorded a win at Nottingham Forest on the weekend but they are still hovering too close to the drop zone for comfort. The FA Cup has been a nice release for them this season from the pressure of the league and the Tigers knocked off Blackburn at Ewood Park in the third round before taking a home win over Nottingham Forest, both victories by a one-goal margin only. You are not going to expect Hull to produce a great deal in front of goal as the Tigers have failed to score in four of their last eight games played across all competitions, but have managed to net in three of their last four. They have collected only the one clean sheet in their last five played. Their lack of output could make it worth backing under 2.5 goals at Ladbrokes for 17/11* (Betting Odds taken on February 11th, 2018 at 5:12 p.m.). The Tigers don't have away from and have produced just three away victories all season (one of them at Blackburn in the FA Cup) and overall they are W3 D5 L10 on the road. The Tigers have failed to net in four of their last seven road games and this all points to them being second best at the Bridge.

Chelsea v Hull FA Cup Betting Odds*

Chelsea 2/11, Draw 11/2, Hull 16/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 9th, 2018 at 11:19 p.m.)

Chelsea v Hull FA Cup Predictions

Chelsea to win to nil should be a decent option to look at as the Premier League side should be comfortable in this fixture. They struggled badly against Championship side Norwich but with Hull really floundering near the foot of the second tier, Chelsea should be far more comfortable in this one, especially after a welcome home league win over West Brom on Monday night.

Chelsea v West Brom Predictions & Betting Odds – 12th February 2018

Chelsea v West Brom Betting Tips - Premier League 12th February 8.00pm This will be another big test for Chelsea as they look to avoid three straight league defeats. All does not seem to well at Stamford Bridge at the moment and Antonio Conte looks to be hanging on to his job by his fingernails. Will they relieve some tension with a home win against bottom side West Brom? The Baggies have lost their last two games and last weekend's defeat at the Hawthorns against Southampton was a bit of a hammer blow for them overall. They desperately need points but don't have form at the Bridge.

Chelsea News and Form

The Blues have been going through a tough time at the moment and they have lost their last two Premier League games now and both were pretty epic collapses as well. After a harrowing 3-0 loss against Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge, the Blues just totally fell apart in a 4-1 loss at Watford last Monday after Tiemoue Bakayoko had gotten himself sent off in the first half of the match. So Chelsea, across all competitions have gone just W2 D4 L3 in their last nine games, which isn’t good by their usual high standards. Their defence has been all over the place lately with only one clean sheet in their last four now in all competitions, so immediately it is worth looking at both teams to score at Ladbrokes for odds of 3/4* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 6:50 p.m.). Chelsea’s home form has been pretty solid for most of the season and their blowout against Bournemouth there recently saw them end an eight-match unbeaten streak of home form that they were on (W7 D1). But they have gone winless in their last two there now (D1 L1), failing to score in those two as well. So they have been strangely lapsing at the back lately and their offence isn’t going well and Eden Hazard, who got their consolation against Watford, as their shortest priced goalscorer option at even money* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 6:50 p.m.)

West Brom News and Form

West Brom are in heaps of trouble now after losing at home against Southampton last weekend in the Premier League. That was a blow against a side who were also under relegation pressure. That is back to back defeats for West Brom in the Premier League now and they have collected only one win in their last twenty-four league games so they are looking a bit desperate right now. They can’t even look to away form for any solace as well because they are winless in six (D2 L4) away from the Hawthorns in the top flight and they have gone without a clean sheet in any of their last four on the road. That’s a twelve match witness streak of form that they are on now away from home in the Premier League overall and they have managed just seven league goals away from the Hawthorns all season. West Brom have conceded at an average of 1.5 goals per game as well. The great revival that they hoped would happen under Alan Pardew simply has not materialised. They have conceded 68% of their goal this season in the second half of matches, so a Draw/Chelsea half time/ full-time wage at Ladbrokes for 14/5 odds* (Betting Odds taken on February 7th, 2018 at 6:50 p.m.) is a decent proposition. They are catching Chelsea out of form at the moment, but their own doesn’t look strong enough to get them a much needed three points.

Chelsea v West Brom Head to Head

There was a big 4-0 win for the Blues out at the Hawthorns earlier this season and that leaves them riding a three-match winning streak against West Brom in the Premier League now. Each of those three wins for Chelsea were with a clean sheet too. Chelsea are undefeated in their last five games against West Brom in the top flight now (W4 D1) and they are unbeaten at the Bridge against the Baggies since a 1-0 League Cup defeat way back in 1984. Chelsea have scored exactly two goals in three of their last four home games against the Baggies.

Chelsea v West Brom Betting Odds*

Chelsea 4/11, Draw 19/5, West Brom 8/1* (Betting Odds taken on February 5th, 2018 at 6:28 p.m.)

Chelsea v West Brom Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have looked totally devoid of confidence and a game plan lately. But for the first time in a while, they have had an entire week off and that could see them come back refreshed enough to get a win over a West Brom side who have been fighting but floundering still at the same time.

2017/18 FA Cup Fifth Round Draw Set

Football News
After the midweek round of replay matches, the final draw for the fifth round of the FA Cup is set. Tottenham saw off League Two side Newport comfortably back at Wembley on Wednesday night to make it through, while Huddersfield needed extra time on Tuesday to see off Championship stranglers Birmingham to also make it through to the next round. They were joined by Swansea who fired eight goals past Notts County in their replay back at the Liberty Stadium and League One side Rochdale, who pulled off an upset in knocking Championship side Millwall out of the competition in a repaly at Spotland in midweek, also got through. Rochdale and Wigan are the lowest ranked sides left in this soane's tournament, coming from League One and they both have home games against Premier League opposition in the next round. February 16th Leicester v Sheffield United Chelsea v Hull February 17th Sheffield Wed v Swansea West Brom v Southampton Brighton & Hove Albion v Coventry Huddersfield v Manchester United   February 18th Rochdale v Spurs February 19th Wigan v Manchester City.

Watford v Chelsea Predictions & Betting Odds – 5th February 2018

Watford v Chelsea Betting Tips - Premier League 5th February 8.00pm Chelsea will be looking for a big response after producing a shocker at Stamford Bridge in midweek where they lost 3-0 against Bournemouth. The Blues couldn't field a recognised striker for the match, but managed to draft in Olivier Giroud from Arsenal to give them a boost going forward. Watford drew 0-0 with Stoke in midweek, claiming their first point under new boss Javi Gracia. Will they be able to strike while Chelsea’s confidence is low?

Watford News and Form

The Hornets got themselves a point in midweek with a 0-0 draw out at Stoke. They are winless in their last five league games now though and since beating Newcastle back on November 25th, they have picked up just one league win. They've actually only won three times at Vicarage Road this season and they have taken just the one win in their last six at home, a 2-1 win over Leicester on December 26th. They may have failed to hit the back of the net in their last two league games, but they are on a seven-match scoring streak at home. However, they have conceded in each of their last six at home as well, so take a look at over 2.5 goals at William Hill for the game* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.). There is a trend as each of Watford’s last four home fixtures have gone above the line. The Hornets have conceded an average of just over two goals per home game. Their league position up in 11th may look good, but they are only the four points away from the drop zone. A win here against the Blues would certainly lift their spirits.

Chelsea News and Form

What a nightmare the Blues had in midweek as they just totally fell apart and lost 3-0 at home against Bournemouth. Nothing at all was going for them and it was a shockingly bad defensive performance. The Blues didn’t have recognised striker to put on the pitch but in grabbing Olivier Giroud from Arsenal, they at least have an option to go with now, while Alvaro Morata works his way back to full fitness. Giroud is at even money odds at William Hill* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.) to score on the weekend for his new club. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last four away games, winning two and drawing two of them. They recorded a huge positive in a 4-0 win at Brighton in their last away game and Chelsea have suffered just two league away defeats all season, both of those were only by a one-goal margin as well. Do they have response in them to what happened in midweek? Chelsea have taken six clean sheets in their last eight league games so that is a positive for them Chelsea to win to nil at William Hill, may still have some appeal and their midweek loss will have left a good price riding on that option. They will have a point to prove.

Watford v Chelsea Head to Head

The head to head is dominated by the Blues who have remained unbeaten in their last thirteen games against Watford now (W10D3). Chelsea have won three of their last four at Vicarage Road and home and away are on a three-match winning streak against the Hornets. The last time that Chelsea lost to Watford was back in the 1999 Premiership. Seven of the last eight meetings between the two clubs have gone over 2.5 goals.

Watford v Chelsea Betting Odds*

Chelsea 1/2, Draw 16/5, Watford 11/2* (Betting Odds taken on February 1st, 2018 at 2:01 a.m.)

Watford v Chelsea Predictions

Chelsea to win: No doubt Chelsea will be under a bit of pressure in this one. The midweek game didn’t go well at all for them, but there were a lot of distractions around and their lack of depth has been telling. Still, Watford are not exactly in form and while they will challenge, may fall short. Away win and both teams to score.

FA Cup Fifth Round Draw & Winner Odds

Manchester City
Monday produced the draw for the FA Cup 5th round and there was no big clash pulled out between any of the front-runners in the competition. The elite Premier League sides left in the tournament really should all be pretty happy with their respective draws in the hunt for the famous piece of silverware. The quarter finals should be Premier League-heavy. FA Cup favourites at Stan James, Manchester City go out on the road to face League One ladders Wigan who knocked West Ham out in the last round, while Manchester United would have to go to the winner of the Huddersfield/Birmingham replay and neither of the Manchester sides will be sweating about the draw. Chelsea gets a comfortable looking home game at Championship strugglers Hull. Tottenham, if they get past Newport in their replay would have a trip to Millwall or Rochdale, while Leicester gets a very nice home draw at the King Power against Sheffield United who have been struggling for form over the second half of the season. Swansea would go to the out-of-sorts Sheffield Wednesday if they can grind their way past Notts County in their fourth-round replay, while Brighton take on League Two side Coventry at home. That leaves one all-Premier League clash of West Brom v Southampton from the Hawthorns. The Baggies pulled off one of the shocks of the last round in beating Liverpool at Anfield.

FA Cup Winner Odds*

Chelsea v Bournemouth Predictions & Betting Odds – 31st January 2018

Chelsea v Bournemouth Betting Tips - Premier League 31st January 3.00pm The Blues continue their heavy work load as they stay at the Bridge to host Bournemouth in midweek. Chelsea have been in cracking form on home soil in the top flight recently, but there have been signs of tiredness from them along the way recently. They get to challenge a Bournemouth side who have improved themselves to go unbeaten in their last five league games, but the Cherries haven't had the taste of victory out on the road for a while. But can they do what Leicester did to Chelsea recently at the Bridge and battle to a point?

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea saw off Newcastle in the FA Cup on the weekend to move ahead and it is immediately back to the Bridge in midweek as they play host to Bournemouth in the Premier League. Chelsea are W8 D2 L2 at home this season in the top flight and they are unbeaten in their last eight there, a seven-match winning streak there being snapped with a 0-0 draw with Leicester in their last home fixture. So they are carrying strong home form and have been tough to score against. Chelsea have earned a clean sheet in each of their last four home games and have collected six in their last seven league games home and away. It’s been impressive stuff and Chelsea to win to nil at BetVictor is naturally going to have some appeal in this game. Chelsea have only conceded seven home goals in total this season at the Bridge. Going forward they have averaged 1.75 goals per game at home in the league. The Blues have beaten all bottom half of the table opposition they have faced at the Bridge this season, taking a clean sheet in all but one of those five opponents. Chelsea though have only scored more than one goal in four of their last six home games and a Chelsea to win by a one-goal margin because of that will have some big appeal as well as Chelsea 1-0 correct score.

Bournemouth News and Form

Bournemouth suffered 1-0 reverses this at Spurs and Manchester United so they have battled well and haven’t been trounced in some of their tougher away games. They don't have a clean sheet in any of their last even games now and from their four visits to current top six sides this season, they haven’t managed to net a single goal. A half-time draw at BetVictor looks a decent proposition though for this because the Cherries have been level at the break in four of their last five games and, because Chelsea aren’t running riot in front of goal particularly in the league. The Cherries are unbeaten in their last five games in the league (W2 D3) but the two wins in that sequence both happened at home, leaving them winless in their last six top-flight road games (D4 L2) and they have been defensively leaky, conceding at least two goals in four of their last five away from the Vitality. Both teams not to score at BetVictor is a decent option for the game, despite the Cherries looking competitive, they have only scored nine away goals at the end of the day and they are going up against a very good home defence.

Chelsea v Bournemouth Head to Head

Chelsea have won three of their last four games at Stamford Bridge over the Cherries (L1). Chelsea have already recorded a league win and an EFL Cup win over Bournemouth this season and they are Chelsea are 8-2 up with no drawn match from their ten previous clashes. The Blues have three clean sheets in their five previous home games against the Cherries. Both of Bournemouth’s wins over Chelsea were by a 1-0 scoreline.

Chelsea v Bournemouth Betting Odds*

Chelsea 2/7, Draw 21/4, Bournemouth 11/1* (Betting Odds taken on January 28th, 2018 at 6:18 p.m.)

Chelsea v Bournemouth Predictions

Chelsea to win: The Blues have been a very good home side and they aren’t likely to lose this one. The Cherries have been doing much better but they haven’t found a winning touch on the road. This could be tight so back the Blues to win it by a one-goal margin.
