Chelsea v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 20th October 2018

Chelsea
Chelsea v Manchester United Betting Tips - Premier League, 20th October 12.30pm What a game this could be with Jose Mourinho taking his struggling Manchester United to Stamford Bridge. He needs a big win and the Red Devils trail Chelsea by seven points heading into the match. Chelsea have remained undefeated so far in the top flight this season and will be looking for points to move, even temporarily to the top of the table. Read our predictions for Chelsea v Manchester United.

Chelsea News and Form

Chelsea will be hoping to extend their great home form against Manchester United in the Premier League. They are the favourites for this fixture as they will be putting their undefeated form for the season on the line in this one. The Blues are at W6 D2 this season and just before the international break, they collected a 3-0 win at Southampton. The star of the show again for them was Eden Hazard who is the current top scorer in the division and while he is running hot, he is worth backing at 11/8 in the anytime goalscorer market* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Chelsea would move ten points clear of United with a win. At Stamford Bridge in the top flight, Chelsea have gone W3 D1 with their winning streak there ended in a 1-1 tie with Liverpool in their last home fixture. The Blues have been transformed into a positive attacking side this season and they have scored at least two goals in each of their victories in the top flight this season. Chelsea have a clean sheet in half of their league games this season and with that in mind, a Chelsea 1-0 correct score option is appealing at 13/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm) but you could, of course, cover everything with a Chelsea to win to nil option.

Manchester United News and Form

It has been a season of struggles for the Red Devils who are now just at W4 D1 L3 for the season. Just before the international break, they found themselves 2-0 down at half-time at Old Trafford against Newcastle. They did manage to fight back for a win but still, their defensive problems were once again exposed. Manchester United did suffer a loss in their last away game which was away at West Ham. They are W2 L2 for the season on the road. Even though United have scored exactly two goals in three of their four away games, we are going to side with this one going under 2.5 goals at 10/11 odds* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm). Surprisingly Manchester United have only one clean sheet to their name this season. They have big issues at centre-half which keeps plugging them. Only Huddersfield, Fulham and Cardiff have conceded more goals than United have done this season. Manchester United have conceded an average of 1.75 goals per game. They have scored 71% and have conceded 71% of their away goals in the first half of matches. Romelu Lukaku is a 5/2 anytime goalscorer option for them* (betting odds taken on October 16th, 2018 at 4:53 pm); he is looking to snap a three-match scoreless streak of form. Manchester United are seven points worse off at the moment than they were at this stage of last season’s campaign.

Chelsea v Manchester United Head to Head

Manchester United and Chelsea traded home wins in the Premier League last season. Chelsea did win the FA Cup final over the Red Devils. Interestingly none of the last ten Premier League meetings have produced an away win. The Blues hold a strong W4 D1 record at home in their last five against United in the league, each of their last three wins with a clean sheet. Both teams have scored in just one of the last six meetings in all competitions. Just two of the last ten in all competitions have made it above the 2.5 goal line.

Chelsea v Manchester United Predictions

Chelsea to win: Looking at the two sides, Chelsea look far more the stable, the more committed and upbeat of them. That’s huge credit to the new boss and with their positive approach, they could ease rattle an already fragile Red Devils side. Home win.

Ramsey to Anfield gains momentum in betting markets

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
Arsenal star set for summer move? There has been a lot of speculation about the future of Arsenal’s Aaron Ramsey. The Welshman’s contract talks with the club has fallen through and it looks for all the world that he will be leaving the Gunners in the summer when his contract is up. During the recent summer transfer window, there were links between Ramsey and AC Milan. They have been long admirers of the midfield ace and they are in at 10/3 to capture his signature in the summer* (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm). Whole other big names like Juventus, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked up with interest in the Welshman, it is Liverpool who are shorter than ever to get his services. Liverpool are now just 5/2, making them the favourites to get Ramsey in the summer* (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm). That is down from a price of 5/1 so it’s been a big move.

Aaron Ramsey Next Club

Liverpool – 5/2 AC Milan – 10/3 Juventus – 4/1 Manchester United – 9/2 Chelsea – 6/1 * (betting odds taken on October 9th, 2018 at 4:20 pm) [bbutton bookmaker="Ladbrokes"] Liverpool have just started to show signs of becoming a bit static and predictable this season, a far cry from their powerful, fluent attacking selves from last term. Their big three of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino haven’t been at the races and certainly, the arrival of Ramsey would give the Reds a tremendous boost in the middle of the park. Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “With Arsenal seemingly preparing for life without Ramsey, it now looks as though Liverpool will add another Gunner to their ranks at the next available opportunity.”

Manchester United 3-2 win at 44.00 odds with Betfair

Football Betting
How big was Manchester United’s comeback win on the weekend at home against Newcastle? The Red Devils fund themselves 2-0 down at half time and looking ragged and uninspired once again. But they fought back late on to secure a tense win. It was an important boost of confidence and a boost for the job security of Jose Mourinho - that will have been huge of course. Before the match, the rumours were flying around the newspapers that he was going to get the sack regardless of the outcome of the Newcastle game. It hasn't happened yet even though Mourinho is the favourite at Betfair to be the next Premier League manager out of the job, even though his adversary from the weekend Rafa Benitez has yet to win a league game for the Magpies this season. Goals in the last twenty minutes of action at Old Trafford on the weekend from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez gave United what, at times, looked like an unlikely win. It was a massive comeback and the final 3-2 scoreline in United’s favoure was at 44.00 at one point in-play. When Newcastle were 2-0 up in the first half they were drawn in as short as 1.16 to get the three points.

Manchester United v Newcastle Predictions & Betting Odds – 6th October 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Newcastle Betting Tips - Premier League, 6th October 5.30pm Manchester United have lost three of their seven league games this season in a really poor return from them. They will be looking to give themselves a lift at Old Trafford on the weekend as they play host to Newcastle. The Magpies are down in the relegation zone, struggling badly in front of goal and they have yet to record a victory. Read our predictions for Manchester United v Newcastle.

Manchester United News and Form

Manchester United are on a four-match winless streak of form (D3 L1) across all competitions and badly need a boost. They went down 3-1 at West Ham last weekend in a shock results. On Tuesday they played out a 0- 0 home draw against Valencia in the Champions League. Overall this season in the Premier League Manchester United have lost three of their seven games (W3 D1) and they are in a bit of a mess. United are W1 D1 L1 at home in the top flight this season, picking up just the one point in their last two home games, but they are favourites here and Manchester United to win to nil is at 5/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm). Romelu Lukaku is on a dry spell at the moment and hasn’t netted in the Premier League since the start of September. So that’s a three-game run in the top flight without a goal for him. Still, he is the 3/1 first goalscorer favourite* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm) for the weekend action. Manchester United were nine points better off at this stage last season than they are at the moment. It’s been that much of a decline for them. They are still looking for their first clean sheet of the season at Old Trafford on the domestic front, but still in facing Newcastle, we can’t help but look at the value of a Manchester United 1-0 correct score at 11/2 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).

Newcastle News and Form

It has been just two points this season that Newcastle have picked up in the Premier League. They look badly out of sorts and in heaps of trouble. They suffered a home defeat against Leicester last weekend and they have now failed to find the back of the net in their last two games. Newcastle have scored in four of their seven league matches this season. Their total output has been four goals. Four of the five league defeats which they have suffered this season have been by a 2-1 scoreline. Manchester United to win by a 1 goal margin is at 9/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm). Newcastle are D2 L1 this season out on the road in the Premier League and they have returned just the one away goal. The two draws were both 0-0 and you feel that that would be some kind of decent result for them really at Old Trafford. Now to some tough stats. Only three teams have conceded more shots against them on average this season than Newcastle have done. In attack, they have averaged fewer shots per game than anyone else in the division. Both teams NOT to score comes in at 3/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 3rd, 2018 at 4:26 pm).

Manchester United v Newcastle Head to Head

There was a home win for both when they met in last season’s Premier League. Manchester United took a comfortable 4-1 home win in this corresponding fixture last term. Things are even with the one victory each and two draws over the last four league meetings. Manchester United are unbeaten at home in the league against the Magpies in three now (W2 D1).

Manchester United v Newcastle Predictions

Manchester United to win: The home win has to appeal in our Manchester United v Newcastle betting predictions. Even though the Red Devils have been a bit disjointed, they should see off the Magpies who are stuck in a pretty poor rut at the moment. Manchester United to win to nil.

Sanchez into 6/4 odds at Ladbrokes to leave Manchester United in January

Next Manager Betting & Transfers
Alexis Sanchez probably wishes now that he would have made that move to Manchester City. Instead, he ended up at Manchester United and he has looked a shadow himself since he arrived at Old Trafford from Arsenal, part of a deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan go the other way. Sanchez has already been called out by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho who has told the Chile star that he isn’t going to be playing under him again until essentially, the player bucks his ideas up. Mourinho hasn’t been happy with his attitude apparently and now Ladbrokes have moved a January exit for Sanchez from 3/1 into 6/4 odds* (betting odds taken on October 2nd, 2018 at 4:57 pm). Sanchez has made just five appearances for the Red Devils this season (all in the Premier League) for a total of 333 minutes. He has the one goal to his name which came against Burnley back on September 2nd. He sat on the bench for the entire 90 minutes of Manchester United’s Champions League opener against Young Boys and didn’t even get onto the pitch in their EFL Cup third round defeat on penalties against Derby. Mourinho left Sanchez out of the squad for their Premier League visits to West Ham last weekend, which the Red Devils lost 3-1. Now he has been slashed to make a quick exit from Old Trafford when the January transfer window opens. Jose Mourinho, who seems to be at war with his own squad is still the 4/5 odds-on favourite to be the next Premier League manager out of a job* (betting odds taken on October 2nd, 2018 at 4:57 pm). His most public clashes have been with World Cup winner Paul Pogba who is at 4/6 odds with Ladbrokes to leave the club in January* (betting odds taken on October 2nd, 2018 at 4:57 pm).

Manchester United Player Exit Odds*

Paul Pogba to leave Man United in January – 4/6 Alexis Sanchez to leave Man United in January – 6/4 Anthony Martial to leave Man United in January – 2/1 Marcus Rashford to leave Man United in January – 5/1

Manchester United v Valencia Predictions & Betting Odds – 2nd October 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Valencia Betting Preview - UEFA Champions League 2nd October 8.00pm After another Premier League defeat on the weekend, things seem to be falling apart at the seams a bit for Manchester United. The Red Devils did win their opening group stage of the Champions League though, beating Young Boys. They get a visit from Valencia at Old Trafford in midweek and the Spaniards haven’t been running in great form themselves. Read our predictions for the Manchester United v Valencia fixture.

Manchester United News and Form

What next for the Red Devils who look to be in a bit of a mess? That is a three-match winless streak that they are on across all competitions. It has been a rough week for them, with a draw against the newly promoted Wolves and a loss against West Ham in the Premier League. Sandwiching those results was an EFL Cup defeat against Championship side Derby. Not much is going right on or off the field for the Red Devils and United have only claimed one clean sheet in their last five games. Last season Manchester United's Champions League campaign came undone against a Spanish side, Sevilla. The Red Devils picked up a 3-0 win at Champions League debutants Young Boys on match day one, but they had their scares in that match at the back. Given the history between Manchester United and Vaelncia, then you are probably going to want to follow the trend of low scoring, tight games. In the bet365 correct to score market a 1-1 draw is trading at 13/2 odds. Given what has happened to them this season, they can’t take any game lightly at the moment. Romelu Lukaku, who is on a five-match scoreless streak (all competitions) is the first goalscorer favourite.

Valencia News and Form

There has not been great momentum for Valencia this season yet. They collected a league win over Sociedad over the weekend and that was their first success of the term in any competitions. Only one of their games this season have reached three goals (all competitions) so it is hard to expect this one to be a high-scoring affair. Valencia posted a 2-0 loss out at Juventus in their opening Champions League game this season. So far this season on their travels, Valencia are W1 D2 L1. Valencia haven’t done all that bad at the back actually as they have collected a clean sheet in three of the last five games. They have earned two in their last three games, so overall they have been hard to break down. But going forward they are lacking a touch of scoring power and that is hampering them. They have failed to score in three of their last five as well, with just the two goals recorded in that sequence. For Manchester United v Valencia predictions there is the option of both teams not to score at 19/20 odds* (betting odds taken on September 30th, 2018 at 6:46 pm) if you wanted to run with that.

Manchester United v Valencia Head to Head

This will be the ninth meeting between Manchester United and Valencia. The most recent meetings were in 2010. Manchester United are W2 D4 in their last six meetings, all of which have been in the Champions League. Overall in the eight meetings, it is Man Utd ahead W2 D5 L2 against the Spaniards. Each of the last five meetings have ended under 2.5 goals. Three of the four, including the last two at Old Trafford have ended in a draw.

We don’t see either quite having enough in them to go and pick up a win in this one. Manchester United are just not looking confident and Valencia are not doing enough to win games because of a lack of scoring power.

Hills slash odds on Manchester United relegation in half

William Hill
William Hill made a big slash of the odds on Manchester United to get relegated from the Premier League this season. That was in a response to a reported big bet that they got on the Red Devils to fall from grace. The last time United weren’t in the top flight was back in the 1974/75 season. The Red Devils were at 500/1 with the bookmaker, but those odds were slashed in half to 250/1. All that has been in response to another difficult week which has emerged at the club with a reported training ground spat between Paul Pogba and boss Jose Mourinho and a Carabao Cup exit against Championship side Derby.

"Sizeable bet"

William Hill reported a “sizeable” bet on United to be related this season. From their opening six games of the season, the Red Devils collected 10 points, suffering back to back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham along the way. While still enormously unlikely, this is the shortest price United has been for Premier League relegation since David Moyes was in charge. “Life has been anything but rosy for Mourinho this season and things appear to be going from bad to worse following his latest row with Paul Pogba, We have had to cut their odds of going down as we have seen quite the sizeable punt over the last 24 hours,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. World Cup winner Paul Pogba was filmed in midweek in an apparently heated exchange with boss Mourinho. Mourinho played down the whole incident on Friday though. But there was another incident during the week in which Pogba had filmed himself laughing with teammates during their loss. Jose Mourinho is the 9/4 favourite at William Hill to be the Next Premier League manager out of a job still.

West Ham v Manchester United Predictions & Betting Odds – 29th September 2018

West Ham
West Ham v Manchester United Betting Tips - Premier League, 29th September 12.30pm West Ham have managed to pick up four points from their last two games in the top flight, which isn’t a bad return considering that they lost their opening four games of the season. They will be playing host to Manchester United who dropped more points for the season last time out as they only managed a draw at Old Trafford against the newly promoted Wolves. Read our predictions for West Ham v Manchester United.

West Ham News and Form

After their dreadful start to the new season with four straight defeats, West Ham have responded with four points in the last two games. They picked up a great point at home against Chelsea in a 0-0 draw last weekend, despite only earning around 30% of possession in the game. It was still a good point for them and could indicate that they could frustrate United this weekend. The Hammers have produced one goal in their three home games this season (D1 L2) so they need improvement there. Under 2.5 goals is at even money* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). We are going to suggest a half-time draw in our West Ham v Manchester United predictions too. West Ham have conceded all their goals this season in the second half of matches. They have been level at 0-0 in two of their three home games this term. Marko Arnautovic is the top scorer for them this season with three goals and he is at 2/1 in the anytime goalscorer market* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). There is a lot of room for improvement still, but if they could earn a point here that would lift their confidence and self-belief further.

Manchester United News and Form

After losing back to back league games Manchester United stopped the rot with wins out at Burnley and Watford to turn the corner. But they were frustrated last weekend in a 1-1 home draw against Wolves after having taken the lead in the match. They can have no complaints over the result either because it was a fair scoreline. Manchester United then are just W1 D1 L1 this term in the Premier League and they haven’t collected a clean sheet on home soil. So they have strangely been better away from home than they have been at Old Trafford. United are W2 D1 with their one clean sheet this season being picked up on their travels. In the bet365 correct score market a 1-1 draw option is at 13/2 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). Romelu Lukaku has scoring form away from home as he has scored in each of United's away games for a total of four goals in three games. So he is the clear favourite in the First Goalscorer market at 3/1 odds* (Betting Odds were taken from September 24th, 2018 at 11:24 p.m.). Manchester United have scored exactly two goals in each of their road games this term.

West Ham v Manchester United Head to Head

West Ham collected a draw on home soil against Manchester United last season in a 0-0 result. That was after suffering a big defeat at Old Trafford. The Irons have gone W1 D3 L2 in their last six Premier League fixtures against Manchester United. West Ham have produced an even W1 D1 L1 record in their last three on home soil against Manchester United. Both teams have failed to score in four of the last six league meetings.

West Ham v Manchester United Predictions

Draw: The draw has the appeal in the match outright here because of how West Ham frustrated Chelsea last weekend. Manchester United haven’t been all-powerful up front and we can see the Hammers, who are nowhere near their best, digging in there and getting a point on the board in the fixture.

Manchester United v Derby Predictions & Betting Odds – 25th September 2018

Manchester United
Manchester United v Derby Betting Tips - EFL Cup, 25th September 8.00pm Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United dropped more points in the Premier League on the weekend in a draw with Wolves on home soil. They stay at Old Trafford for their midweek EFL Cup action as they play host to Championship side Derby. Frank Lampard’s Rams will be looking for an upset at Old Trafford. Read our predictions for Manchester United v Derby.

Manchester United News and Form

There were more points dropped by Manchester United last weekend in the Premier League as Wolves held out for a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. They were on a three-match winning streak across all competitions before that so were in something of an upward swing of form. This is only their fourth home fixture of the season and their form at Old Trafford has been indifferent at W1 D1 L1. They have not managed to pick up a clean sheet on home soil either this season which is a bit of a surprise. For our Manchester United v Derby predictions were are going to look at under 2.5 goals at 27/20 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 7:35 pm). The Red Devils have beaten the Rams in each of their last four against them at Old Trafford. The last time they met was in the FA Cup back in January the season with the Red devils banking a 2-0 home win.

Derby News and Form

Derby have had some indifferent performances this season, but in general, they have put together a pretty strong season. They started their EFL Cup campaign with a win out on the road at Oldham and then they went back on the road to beat Hull in the last round. They have produced a W7 D1 L3 record across all competitions, but their goal output hasn’t been all that high really, which is probably their one let-down. Defensively they have been strong as they shipped just the two goals in their last seven games played. Both teams not to score in the game is at 4/7 odds* (betting odds taken from September 23rd, 2018 at 7:35 pm). Derby have produced a W4 L2 record in their last six away games, scoring at least two goals in each of their away games so far this term.
