Match Preview

Man United’s upturn in form has come to a halt over the last seven days, as their Champions League hopes are in the balance following a dramatic draw against Galatasaray, while the club weren’t able to get back on track last weekend after suffering a 1-0 defeat against Newcastle. However, it was the below-par performance at St. James’ Park that has put United under increasing pressure.

Chelsea will be the favored in the betting to claim maximum points this week, as the Blues chase a second straight victory following a win against Brighton on Sunday. A second consecutive win for the Blues could see Chelsea end the round as high as eighth in the Premier League standings.

United’s record in this fixture is very impressive, as they have gone eleven league matches without defeat against the Blues. However, seven matches over that period have ended in draws. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s last away league win against the Red Devils came back in May 2013. Since then, they’ve drawn six and lost four of their ten visits.

This will be the eighth time that Chelsea and United have clashed in midweek, with the Red Devils landing just one win. However, their only success did come in the form of a 4-1 win last term. Chelsea have landed just a single victory from ten midweek fixtures in the Premier League, which includes defeats in five of the last six. 

Man United vs Chelsea Prediction

It is challenging to trust either United or Chelsea this term. Therefore, as this is the most drawn fixture in Premier League history, that could once again be the standout selection for this match on Wednesday.
