With Manchester United trailing the Premier League leaders by some distance this weekend’s TV clash with Chelsea may not carry the importance of previous meetings but it still promises to be a spectacle.
And with Ladbrokes offering money back* on ALL losing markets if both teams score there’s never been a better time to bet on Chelsea v United.
Games between these two are often hard-fought affairs, with nine of the last 11 clashes either ending all square or being settled by a single goal, and with just one 0-0 draw during that period it looks a safe bet that both teams will find the back of the net.
In fact, seven of the last 10 clashes between the Red Devils and the Blues have seen both sides score, but with United having won only once in seven attempts against the west Londoners the 4/5 on a home win looks like a licence to print money.
New United manager David Moyes had some Old Trafford fans believing a corner had been turned with a run of six straight wins in all competitions, but three successive losses in the league and both cups have left many questioning how far the champions can go this season.
The visitors look too short to pull off an upset at 5/4 especially when you consider that United have won just three of their last 10 games in the capital and that those victories came against the city’s less fashionable clubs – Fulham and QPR.
However, the fact that United avoided defeat in further five of those 10 games – a feat they have achieved on three of their last five visits to Stamford Bridge – means the 13/5 about the draw is a tempting price.
However, with Chelsea unbeaten in 19 games in front of a home crowd – winning 16 times in that run – many could be tempted to go large on the home win and with the safety net offered by Ladbrokes’ money back offer there’s really no reason not to.
