Bet365: Sweet 5/2 On Offer For Chelsea And United To End In A Stalemate
21 October 2022
After the midweek round of fixtures, the Premier League returns this weekend with the biggest seeing Chelsea host Manchester United as Graham Potter’s Blues square off against Erik Ten Hag’s Red Devils at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
After a sour start to the season, Manchester United have climbed up to fifth place in the Premier League standings. In their midweek match against Tottenham,, the Red Devils produced arguably their best performance of the season to outclass Antonio Conte’s men 2-0, and they’ll be hoping for a repeat performance this weekend against a Chelsea team just settling in under a new manager. The Stamford Bridge outfit are fourth in the league standings and after a strong start to Graham Potter’s reign. However, Chelsea must step up against United if they are to stand any chance of winning, with their goalless draw against Brentford during the midweek a timely reminder that Potter’s men are far from the finished team and much still needs to be improved.
Manchester United will be determined to prove their top-four credentials against a direct rival after making a significant statement against Tottenham Hotspur this week. Erik ten Hag has had impressive results in recent weeks bar the defeat to their neighbours, City. Chelsea has significantly improved under Graham Potter, but this week they will need to patch up a few loopholes in their defense. Potter also has to ensure his frontline is firing on all cylinders if they are to cause United’s defense major problems.
Both teams look evenly matched at the moment, and it is difficult to predict an outright winner in a game that promises to be entertaining. As a result, Bet365 is offering a sweet 5/2 for the game to end in a stalemate.
