Manchester United haven’t beaten Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in 12 attempts but after winning their last six games in a row the Red Devils will arrive in west London full of confidence.
After swatting aside Tottenham, Liverpool and local rivals Manchester City in recent weeks Louis van Gaal’s men will want to lay down a marker for next season and force Chelsea to put their title-winning Champagne on ice for a little longer.
And one man hell bent on ending United’s dismal run at the Bridge is captain Wayne Rooney.
The Old Trafford talisman is enjoying a purple patch in front of goal having recently been restored to his favourite central striker role.
The England man has now smashed seven goals in his last 11 games to take his season’s tally to 21 in 40 games for club and country.
And with the Red Devils ace in such fine form, who better to make the subject of one of this weekend’s Ladbrokes Price Boosts?
The bookmaker has enhanced the odds on Rooney silencing the Bridge with an opening goal from 6/1 to a whopping 8/1 and given his knack for firing his side ahead first this season those odds are not to be sniffed at.
Rooney has opened the scoring on no less than seven occasions this season and with nine goals against the Blues in his United career to date few men look better placed than to carry the game to the hosts and make them sweat on that title – even if only for a week or so.
