Chelsea vs. Manchester United predictions

Neither Chelsea nor Manchester United have lived up to expectations in the Premier League this season.

We are now in the run-in race with the finish line in sight. Both of these teams have some serious work to do if they want to salvage anything from the 2023/24 campaign.

The FA Cup could yet bring a trophy to Chelsea or Manchester United, which would go some way to making up for their lackluster performances in the top flight.

But Manchester City are the favorites to win this tournament. If they triumph, Chelsea and United will both end the season empty-handed.

European qualification remains a possibility. It has been clear for some time that Chelsea will not participate in the Champions League next season, even though the competition is set to expand to 36 teams.

The Blues could still qualify for the Europa League, for which seventh place could be enough. They are just four points away from that target and have played fewer matches than all the teams above them in the standings.

Yet even Chelsea fans are pessimistic. Their season was marked by inconsistency. A 2-2 draw against 10-man Burnley on Saturday was their latest disappointing result.

Mauricio Pochettino is yet to win over a large portion of the Chelsea fan base. He is unlikely to be sacked until next season at the earliest, but the Argentine is under pressure.

Manchester United, for their part, are eight points behind fifth place, which should be enough for Champions League qualification. After finishing third last season, the Ten Hag team has regressed this time.

A victory on Thursday night would offer a glimmer of hope for both teams, but it won’t be enough to assuage those wondering whether Pochettino and Ten Hag are the right men for their respective jobs.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tips

The final match of the Premier League midweek round pits Chelsea against Manchester United.

Chelsea will win – Evens (Betfred)

Chelsea really should have beaten Burnley last time. They created numerous chances but were lavish in front of goal.

It could have cost them dearly: the last chance of the match fell to Burnley striker Jay Rodriguez, who would have condemned Chelsea to defeat had he taken it.

Pochettino, with some justification, would present the numbers behind his defense of Chelsea’s current position, 11th in the table.

Expected goal difference, a measure of the quality of chances a team creates and gives up, places Chelsea fourth in the division, behind only the three title contenders.

It’s true that wasteful finishing has let the Blues down on several occasions, but Pochettino has also been disappointing in his debut campaign in west London.

Still, we love the hosts in this one. Playing at Stamford Bridge should help and they face a Manchester United side who are really struggling defensively.

Chelsea or draw and over 2.5 goals – 19/20 (Betfred)

It’s hard to imagine this game having a low score. Even if Chelsea struggle to convert their chances, they know how to create them.

Manchester United, on the other hand, are struggling to keep their opponents at bay. Remarkably, only Sheffield United and Luton Town have conceded more shots this season.

We saw United’s main flaw again on Saturday, when they were lucky to draw 1-1 against Brentford, who had 31 attempts on their goal.

Ten Hag’s side pose an attacking threat, although Rasmus Hojlund remained quiet this weekend and Marcus Rashford has been out of form for some time. More than 2.5 goals therefore seems obvious.

Also keep in mind that United have not won an away game against another big six in any competition under Ten Hag. Chelsea should be able to avoid defeat, so this accumulator bet looks good value, just below ties.

⚽ Opt for Chelsea or draw and over 2.5 goals at 19/20 with Betfred ⚽

Cole Palmer will score at any time – 13/10 (Betfred)

Cole Palmer has been a rare bright spot for Chelsea this season. When he joined the club last summer, it was unclear whether or not he would be a regular starter from the start.

Moreover, Palmer immediately became one of Chelsea’s most important players. In fact, he’s probably #1 on this list right now.

The former Manchester City attacking midfielder scored 13 goals and provided eight assists for a struggling Chelsea side. It’s an effort for a 21-year-old entering his first real season at this level.

Palmer will have plenty of opportunities in open play on Thursday. He is also Chelsea’s designated shooter and has a solid record from 12 yards.

Palmer is the man Manchester United need to watch the most, but we like his chances of filling the net.
