Manchester vs Chelsea Betting Analysis 

Manchester United Betting Analysis

The Premier League odds were not in favor of Manchester United as they were recently humbled by their arch-rivals, the Gunners, where they were hammered 3-1 in the Premier League. However, they will walk in this game to avoid a repeat of the same at all costs. 

Manchester United enjoyed a 45% game possession with five shots on target out of the total. Christiano Ronaldo again rose to the occasion by scoring his 100th Premier League goal in the 34th minute, but that still wasn’t enough to keep the ship afloat.

Arsenal had 14 shots, 7 of them being on target. Nuno Tavares gave the gunners an early lead in the 3rd minute, and Bukayo Saka enforced that lead in the 32nd minute before Granit Xhaka unleashed a rocket that flew past De Gea in the 70th minute to secure the three points safely.

Manchester United’s defense continues to haunt them as it’s rare these days to maintain a clean sheet. In the last six clashes, Red devils have scored six and, in return, have let in 12 goals. So was the problem their captain, as most claim so?

Manchester United’s pre-game statistics indicate the following:

They have not lost a game in their last eight league meetings with Chelsea.

They have not won in the previous three league matches against the blues.

Moreover, they have maintained an unbeaten streak at home in the last seven games.

Chelsea Betting Analysis

The kings of Europe, Chelsea, enter the match on the back of a 1-0 victory over the Hammers, West Ham United.

Chelsea enjoyed a 67% possession with 26 shots, with five on target. However, the strikers seemed to have lost a footing, and it took Captain America, Pulisic, in the dying minute of the game to score the winner. The Hammers recorded six shots, with two on target.

Chelsea has been impressive as in the last six games, they have gone ahead to score in every game with a total of 15 goals letting in 9 goals.

Betting analysis displays that; 

In their last eight league encounters, they have not beaten Manchester United away from home. So it’s been a tough stretch of road.

They have not lost in their last five league road games.
