Monday Night Football throws up a tasty clash between ‘Big Six’ sides Chelsea and Man United in what could be pivotal for the visitors’ top four challenge.
Defeat at Stamford Bridge would leave Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men nine points off the pace, and hopes of Champions League football would at that stage rest solely on their Europa League campaign.
Marcus Rashford is a key loss for the northern side and they’ve failed to score in four of their past five matches now.
The England international bagged two goals at home to rock-bottom Norwich in the exception before departing the field, while the Red Devils’ away from leaves a lot to be desired.
They’re now just W3-D1-L6 over their past 10 trips, failing to score in all six defeats as they even went down to the likes of West Ham, Newcastle, Bournemouth and Watford.
A lack of character has arguably been United’s biggest downfall this season as the first goal tends to set the tone.
In the seven road trips that they’ve conceded first, only at Bramall Lane have they managed to respond with an effort of their own. If Chelsea were to grab the first of the game, we’d struggle to see a way back for the 13-time champions.
With regards to that, we’re definitely happy to get behind the hosts to score. After a small blip, they’ve scored five in their last two home games as it’s the sides that sit deep and narrow that Frank Lampard’s men tend to struggle to break down.
With their opponents here keeping just the sole away clean sheet all season there’s definitely goals in this for the Blues.
Chelsea To Beat Manchester United
What will play on Chelsea’s mind is the fact that they’ve lost both fixtures against United so far this season by an aggregate scoreline of 6-1 across the League and EFL Cup.
That should serve as motivation however, and having gone unbeaten over their last four against the ‘Big Six’ and Leicester, we’re happy to get behind them for the win and strengthen their grip on the Champions League spots.
New signing Odion Ighalo has been announced in United’s squad for this one, though having missed the club’s mid-season training camp in Spain it’s unlikely he’ll be shoehorned straight into the starting line-up, meaning Martial and Abraham will likely lead the line for their respective sides.
Neither are hitting dazzling heights of late and with a lack of goalscoring form for any particular player in either side, we’re happy to avoid the goalscorer markets for this.
