    Manchester United v Chelsea Betting Predictions and Match Preview

    Manchester United host Chelsea in matchday 28 of the Premier League on Sunday 25th February, 2:05pm at Old Trafford. The hosts currently sit in 2nd place in the table having lost against Newcastle United 1-0 last time out, while the visitors are in 4th after their 3-0 win against West Bromwich Albion.

    Chelsea proved against Barcelona on Tuesday night that they remain capable of mixing it with the best teams in Europe, and there is every chance of Antonio Conte’s men securing a fourth draw (28% chance) in eight Premier League trips against opponents who have finished on level terms twice in four home matches at this level recently.

    Last Season's Score
    Despite winning the title, goals from Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera ensured that the Blues were beaten 2-0 at Old Trafford last season, and that scoreline is afforded an 8% chance of happening again here by our Kickoff predictive algorithm.

    Team News For Manchester United
    Having played in Seville on Wednesday night, Jose Mourinho is likely to make one or two changes to his starting XI for what is another big game, though he remains without the services of Marouane Fellaini through injury.

    Team News For Chelsea
    Antonio Conte opted to play without a recognised striker against Barcelona, but the Italian is expected to bring Alvaro Morata back into the side for this contest.

    First Goal Scorer Betting Predictions
    Romelu Lukaku (15% chance) appears to have rediscovered his scoring boots in 2018, so the Belgian international starts as the favourite to break the deadlock here, though Willian (8% chance) is surely worth a look for the visitors following his starring role in midweek.

    This clash will take place at Old Trafford at 2:05pm on Sunday 25th February and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Premier League. Highlights will be shown on Match of the Day 2 later that evening at 10:30pm.
