Football ManUtd120Our featured English Premier League match taking place on Saturday sees Manchester United clash with Chelsea and we look to the goalscorer markets for a bet.

 

 

 

Man United

 

United were in Champions League action on Tuesday night. They came away from a trip to Paris with an excellent 2-1 win over PSG with the goals coming courtesy of a Fernandes penalty and a late Rashord strike. Last weekend they were 4-1 winners at Newcastle with 3 late goals, a result which seems to have kick-started their season.

League form had erratic early one with home defeats to Palace (3-1) and Spurs (6-1) either side of a fortunate win at Brighton (3-2). Over 2.5 goals (or even over 3.5 goals) and both teams to score has been the way forward for punters.

Chelsea

 

Chelsea were also involved in the Champions League on Tuesday night but they had to settle for a 0-0 draw at home to Sevilla in a game of few chances.

In the Premier League Chelsea have been banging the goals in, scoring at least 3 times in 4 of their 5 matches. However they have been conceding as well and they have earned just 8 points from the 15 available. The goals they scored in the 3-3 draw at home to Southampton on Saturday were from the top draw but not for the first time this season defensive mistakes proved costly. Prior to that they demolished Palace 4-0 in a home game, came from 3-0 down to snatch a 3-3 draw at West Brom, lost 2-0 at home to Liverpool and won 3-1 at Brighton.

 

Recent Head to Head

 

The teams met 4 times last season including on the opening day of the league season and United cruised to a 4-0 win.

In October United won an EFL Cup tie 2-1 at Stamford Bridge.

In February United completed a league double with a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge

In the FA Cup semi finals in July Chelsea ran out 3-1 winners at Wembley.

 

 

The Betting

 

In the match result betting United are 15/10 to win the game with the draw at 26/10 and Chelsea are 18/10

It's 5/10 for both teams to find the net and around 6/10 for a game of 3 goals or more in total.

Verdict

 

Marcus Rashford came through as anytime goalscorer pick for me last weekend and again in midweek so given his form the current price of 2/1 looks decent enough.

 

Suggested Bets: Anytime goalscorer Rashford at 2/1
