Manchester United vs Chelsea Prediction & Betting Odds - Premier League Tips
August 08, 2019
Manchester United will meet Chelsea in English Premier League soccer action at Old Trafford in Manchester, England on Sunday afternoon (at 4.30pm, local time).
This game will be the first heavyweight clash between two of the English Premier League’s “Big 6” of the new season and features 2 clubs that have had difficult summers in the transfer window.
The Red Devils haven’t had a great deal of success (new defender Harry Maguire aside) in attracting the top soccer players as a result of missing out on UEFA Champions League football, while Chelsea are still working under a transfer embargo and lost their marquee player Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.
It seems unlikely that either of these teams will be capable of maintaining a sustained title challenge in the Premier League this season, so securing Champions League football with a top four finish in the Premier League will be the main objective this term.
