Neither of these sides have been setting the Premier League alight this season, and it will be a struggle for both teams to make it into Europe next year based on current performances. The top 7 teams in the league get some type of European competition, but there are at least six teams who are better than Chelsea and United in my opinion. If you are considering doing a spot of football betting on this big match, whether with real money or a free bet, then do yourself a favour and check out who I think will go on and win by read my prediction below.

🏆 Manchester United vs Chelsea

Manchester United's performances have not been anything to write home about in the EPL, but they have been picking up results, which is the most important thing. Although, I am sure that their fans would like to see the kind of entertaining football that the Red Devils used to be known for. In their last six league matches, they have picked up four wins and two defeats, which leaves them 7th in the table on 24 points - 5 points behind Aston Villa in 4th.

Chelsea, on the other hand, have been extremely hit-and-miss this season, and this is reflected in their last six results as they have picked up two wins, two draws, and two defeats. They are currently in 10th place with 19 points, so they know a win will leave them breathing down the necks of United.

Such a fixture used to be one to look forward to, but those days are long gone. I would not be surprised if this is another drab affair between two mid-table teams - the fans might be preparing the paper planes already. My prediction for this match is a bore draw.

My Prediction: 🏆 Manchester United 1 Chelsea 1 ⚽

💯 Manchester United vs Chelsea Match Odds

Due to the popularity of the English Premier League, you will find a wide variety of markets at most established and new UK betting sites that you encounter. However, some markets are more popular than others, and below I am going to provide you with the match odds that some of the top bookmakers are currently offering for them.

If you want to find out more about any of the bookies below, you can do so by clicking on the brand logo.

Manchester United vs Chelsea: Match Winner

Chelsea are the slight favourites to win this match, and this can probably be put down to the fact that they are playing slightly better football than the home team, although United have more wins under their belts. For me, the Blues have the better players, but their problem is their inconsistency, which is why I think that a draw is the most likely outcome in this game.

Manchester United vs Chelsea: Both Teams To Score

In their previous six matches, Manchester United have scored 7 goals and conceded 5, while Chelsea have scored 14 and conceded 15. Both teams have been shaky in defense this season, so I can see both teams finding the back of the net in a 1-1 draw. As you can see from the table below, the bookmakers also agree with me.

Manchester United vs Chelsea: Over/Under 2.5 Goals

The last time that these two teams met at Old Trafford in the EPL, Manchester United ran out 4-1 winners, but I would be surprised if there were that many goals in this mid-week match. In the last six meetings between these two clubs, there have been five draws, with fewer than 2.5 goals scored. As you can see from the odds below, the best UK bookies are expecting over 2.5 goals - I cannot see this happening.

✔️ Manchester United vs Chelsea - Betting Tips

Now that you know the odds that five of the best bookies are offering for some of the most popular EPL betting markets, it is now time for me to provide you with some helpful betting tips for this Manchester United vs Chelsea match.

  • Tip 1: Bet on the match to end in a draw: When you look at the most recent meetings between these two teams, it is not hard to see why I am backing a draw. The previous six matches have seen five draws and one win for Manchester United. I think that both teams will cancel each other out in a pretty drab affair, so the odds of 3.70 on offer at William Hill are worth looking at.
  • Tip 2: Both sides to score: Both Manchester United and Chelsea have some quality attacking players in their ranks, and they have not been at their best defensively this season. From the last 10 EPL fixtures between these two teams, both teams have scored on 6 occasions, and I am fairly confident that both teams will find the back of the net once again. William Hill are offering odds of odds of 1.57 for this market.
  • Tip 3: Under 2.5 goals to be scored: More often than not, this fixture is not a goal-fest, so if you are one of those punters that likes to bet on the number of goals that will be scored in the match, I recommend that you consider putting money on the under 2.5 market. Spreadex Sports are currently offering odds of 2.25 for fewer than three goals to be scored.
  • Tip 4: Correct score to be 1-1: If you like to place wagers on the correct score of a match, then I think that the most likely score for this match is a 1-1. Both teams would probably be quite content with such a scoreline, although it would not be the best spectacle for us. Those who want to bet on 1-1 can find odds of 7.00 at Spreadex Sports.

1️⃣ Manchester United Update

Erik Ten Hag's men are at risk of being eliminated in the Group Stage of the Champions League, but it is safe to say that they have been fairing better in the Premier League. From the 14 matches that they have played, they have 8 wins and 6 defeats, giving them a total of 24 points. As I said earlier, they have not been playing entertaining football under Ten Hag, but they are picking up points, which is the main thing.

Onana will have the spotlight on him as he has been at fault for several goals since he took over from De Gea, and Mauricio Pochettino will probably instruct his players to test him with some long-range shots. As always, there will be pressure on Maguire to perform as many fans do not think that he should be anywhere near the starting XI, so he has plenty to prove.

The Red Devils have more than their fair share of injuries at the moment, and if things keep on going the way they have been, then they might have to start thinking about drafting in some kids over the busy festive period. The likes of Casemiro (hamstring strain), Christian Eriksen (leg injury), Lisandro Martinez (foot injury), and Mason Mount (calf injury) are some important players who will have to sit this one out.

2️⃣ Chelsea Update

After 14 matches, Chelsea are sitting in 10th place in the table with 19 points - they have picked up 5 wins, 4 draws, and 5 defeats. They have spent a lot of money on young players recently, and this season was always going to be one that was focused mainly on rebuilding and getting valuable EPL experience for their new signings. When they click, which they have done on a few occasions this season, they have shown that they have plenty of quality.

Pochettino's men got a very good 3-2 win against Brighton at the weekend, and they will be eager to build on that against United. They will have their eyes on finishing in 6th or 7th this season so that they at least have some European football to play next year.

Chelsea have also not been without their injury issues this season, and Pochettino will be frustrated at the fact that Conor Gallagher got himself sent off for two bookable offenses against Brighton. They will now be without their captain for their trip up to Manchester as he has to serve a one-game ban. Some other notable absentees include Malo Gusto (knock), Wesley Fofana (cruciate ligament injury), Ben Chilwell (hamstring strain), and Christopher Nkunku (knee injury).
