      Chelsea keeps improving its position in the league, after the terrible season start that has led to the departure of Mourinho. The home team hasn’t lost any of the last 8 matches, but then again they have also only won 3. In the last round they tied in a goalless match against Watford, 9th of the league. Chelsea had more ball possession, but only managed to shot at the opponent’s goal 7 times throughout the match. This classic against Manchester United is fundamental for a team that dreams about getting access to a European competition. But more than half of the season has gone by, so to reach this goal they need to win points in all matches.

      Analysis of Manchester United

      The away team is currently in the 5th position of the league, with 40 points won, after 11 wins, 7 draws and 6 losses. In the penultimate match, they lost in a home match against Southampton, by (0‑1). In the last match, they won in a home match against Stoke City, by (3‑0). This is a team that usually makes good use of the home advantage, stronger with the help of its supporters, since in the last 30 matches they register 5 wins, 4 draws and 6 losses in away matches, with 22 goals scored and 23 conceded; against 8 wins, 5 draws and 2 losses at their stadium, with 18 goals scored and 5 conceded.

In 24 matches for this competition, they have conceded the first goal 7 times and have only turned the score around in 1.

      Manchester United is 5 points behind a Champions League access standing, so they need the 3 points to recover the negative difference towards Arsenal. In the last round they had a 3-0 comfortable win over Stoke, with goals by Lingard and Martial in the 1st half and one by Wayne Rooney in the second. Manchester had less ball possession than the opponent, but they were more efficient in the creation of goal opportunities, with 8 shots, against 4 by Stoke. Moreover, keeper De Gea had a quiet match and didn’t need to make a single defence throughout the match. In this match against Chelsea, Manchester needs to attack and score to keep dreaming about the title, since the difference for Leicester keeps increasing. But coach Louis Van Gaal willnot be able to count on the right winger Matteo Darmian, who has been suspended after the accumulation of 3 yellow cards.

      Betting suggestion:

      Chelsea and Manchester should play an interesting classic, with both teams fighting for the win. The home team has scored 11 goals in the last 12 home matches, while Manchester United has scored 5 in the last 6 away match. Therefore, we expect both teams to score.
