Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Preview – 18/02/2019

Chelsea vs Manchester United

One game you will not want to miss this Monday will be held at Stamford Bridge as two of the Premier League powerhouses go head-to-head in the FA Cup Fifth Round. Manchester United make the journey down south to face Chelsea, looking to keep their FA Cup campaign going after their Champions League hopes were left in tatters after they lost to PSG. Maurizio Sarri will be looking to build up his side’s momentum, with big games against Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City on the horizon. When these sides met in the league, they could not be separated with the final result ending 2-2.

This has not been Chelsea’s finest season with them currently sitting down in sixth, struggling to find any consistency in their performances. Over the last five league games, Chelsea have lost three and won just two. In all three defeats, they have failed to score a single goal and conceded 12. Their most recent league fixture saw them go up against Manchester City who left them embarrassed when they eased to a huge 6-0 win. The Blues, however, did manage to secure a win in the next match against Malmo in the Europa League. Chelsea can be backed with SkyBet to win at 1/1.

Not so long ago, Chelsea had held one of the best defensive records in the league but this is not the case anymore with them becoming very leaky at the back. In the last five games, they have conceded 11 goals and ten of those came over just two fixtures. With Chelsea prone to conceding goals recently and United showing good form in the final third, you may want to back BTTS which has a price of 7/10 with Bet365. Gonzalo Higuain has bagged two goals in his first three matches as a Chelsea player and can be backed with Betway to score anytime at a price of 13/10.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s reign as Manchester United manager has been filled with plenty of success, but he was struck with his first defeat on Wednesday when PSG won 2-0 in the Champions League. This defeat was United’s first in the 12 games Solskjaer has been in charge with them securing ten wins and one draw in the other eleven fixtures. Prior to their loss to PSG, United had picked up back-to-back wins against Fulham and Leicester City. SkyBet has the travelling side priced at 13/5 to win on Monday.

Manchester United have been much more fluid when on the attack with Solskjaer’s game style and only three of their last twelve games have seen them score two or fewer goals. SkyBet has United to score 2+ goals priced at 15/8. Paul Pogba has been in inspired form in recent games and has bagged four goals in his last six matches. Betway has the midfielder to score anytime priced at 23/10.
