Chelsea vs Manchester United betting preview

Manchester United’s return from the first-ever winter break in the English Premier League will be marked with a trip to London to face Chelsea on Monday night.

The race for a place on the UEFA Champions League next season has gained significance for United following the news of Manchester City’s two-year ban from European cup competitions due to breaches of Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations.

Although the English champions have signalled their intention to take the matter to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), this pronouncement means that their local rivals now have a realistic chance of qualifying for the Champions League should they finish in the top five.

United went into the winter break with a goalless draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford to sit ninth on the table on 35 points – six points behind Chelsea in fourth and a distant 39 points adrift league leaders Liverpool.

Frank Lampard will be hoping his players have fully recharged their batteries ahead of Manchester United’s visit, as the encounter will be the first in a tricky run of fixtures that includes key dates against Tottenham Hotspur and Bayern Munich.

The Blues will look to serve United with a dose of retribution for the 4-0 drubbing inflicted by Ole Gunner Solskjaer’s side on the opening day of the season. Although both sides have had their ups and downs since then, Chelsea are far better off than United.

Despite heading into the winter break without a win in their last three matches against Newcastle United, Arsenal and Leicester City, the West Londoners are still fourth on the table on 41 points – two points ahead of Sheffield United in fifth and 33 points behind Liverpool.

Chelsea could extend their lead over United to nine points with a win, while United would climb to seventh on the ladder with any sort of result at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea team news

Christian Pulisic, who has spent a month on the sidelines with an adductor injury, is set to miss United’s visit, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles.

Uncertainly also surrounds the club’s top scorer, Tammy Abraham, who picked up a knock during Chelsea’s bout with Arsenal at the end of last month.

Manchester United team news

Odion Ighalo, who joined the club on loan from Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua in January, has a good chance of making his debut against Chelsea on Monday night, while Nemanja Matic is available for selection after a serving a one-match suspension.

Scott McTominay is still out with knee ligament damage, Axel Tuanzebe continues to struggle with a muscle problem and Paul Pogba has no chance of assisting his side until early March due to an ankle injury.

The biggest absentee for this encounter will be Marcus Rashford. The England international, who has scored four times in his last two appearances against Chelsea, remains sidelined with a back injury and is not expected to return until April.

Despite making notable progress during the winter training camp in Spain, Tim Fosu-Mensah will miss the trip to Stamford Bridge with a minor injury setback.

Anthony Martial has scored 12 times for Manchester United in all competitions this season, second only to the injured Marcus Rashford’s tally of 19. The 24-year-old Frenchman, who has found the back of the net in three of his last five appearances against the Blues, should be revitalised and ready to go after the warm-weather training in Spain.

Chelsea vs Man United EPL betting predictions

Ole Gunner Solskjaer has yet to suffer defeat in his four matches against Chelsea as United manager, winning three and drawing one. Having won on his last two trips to Stamford Bridge, knocking Chelsea out of the FA Cup and Carabao Cup respectively, the Norwegian tactician could once again put the Blues to the sword on Monday night.

Our Prediction:
