Chelsea vs. Manchester United Match Preview – Can Red Devils stop in form Blues?



The last 16 of the Carabao Cup has served up a cracker as Frank Lampard’s Chelsea host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

After losing to Liverpool back in September the Blues have won their last seven games in all competitions, including an emphatic 4-2 away win at Burnley on Saturday.

Lampard seems to have found the perfect blend of youth and experience. Old heads like Willian, Alonso and Azpilicueta all provide a calming and guiding presence on the field. While Mount, Abraham and Tomori, products of Chelsea’s academy of course, provide youth and exuberance along with bags and bags of talent.

New signing Christian Pulisic arrived at Stamford Bridge with high expectations, but failed to hit the ground running, until now. The American wonder kid bagged a hat-trick at Turf Moor, finally showing why he’s so highly rated in the US. He’s 9/1 to open the scoring.

While Chelsea are flying it’s a completely different story for an injury hit Manchester United side. The Red Devils find themselves seven points adrift of the top four and a staggering 15 points behind league leaders Liverpool with just 10 games gone. Defensively United have looked dodgy and going forward they’ve been short on creativity.

Ole’s side head to Stamford Bridge having won back to back games for just the second time this season. Better still both victories were on the road. Not bad for a side who’s last away win was was back in March.

Like Lampard, Solskjaer too has put faith in youth. Although he hasn’t really had much choice considering the number of injuries and lack of squad depth. Mason Greenwood could start from the off and he’s 9/1 to open the scoring.

United were 4-0 winners in their opening game of the season against Chelsea and it’s 175/1 for a repeat scoreline, highly unlikely.

Chelsea have recorded clean sheets in their last two home games and they’re 5/2 to beat Manchester United to nil.

Manchester United are as big as 17/5 to beat Chelsea in 90 minutes, the draw is 11/4 and the hosts are 10/11 to make it eight wins on the bounce in all competitions.
