Tip Chelsea - Manchester United
Prediction published on November 25, 2021 at 5:36 PM - Modified on November 26, 2021 at 3:02 AM
Manchester United are set to appoint Ralf Rangnick as manager for the short term, but it is expected that Michael Carrick will be in charge for the away game at Chelsea. Going into this game, Chelsea are in great form, leading in both their Champions League group and in the Premier League. They are top of the league with 29 points, while Manchester United are eighth with 17. The Blues go to this game in top form, after a 4-0 win over Italian giants Juventus. They thrashed Leicester City 3-0 in their last league game and going to this clash they’ll be very confident. Chelsea are the best defensive side in the league and it even reflects in the fact that they have seven clean sheets in their last 10- matches. They are unbeaten in the 10 matches and in the Premier League alone, they have conceded just one goal in the last five, while scoring 15.
Manchester United are coming from a poor run but their win away to Villarreal in the Champions League will for sure lift spirits. This could be Michael Carrick’s last game in charge and he will definitely want to inspire them to another key win. The Red Devils have managed just two clean sheets in their last 15 matches, a bad run, considering the kind of opposition they face here. They have conceded two or more goals in three of their last four matches and four of their last five matches have produced over 2.5 goals. In seven league matches they have managed just one win, the 3-0 win over Tottenham, and have lost five. In the last five in the league, they’ve conceded two or more in four. United are coming from a 4-1 defeat at Watford in their last league game, a result that pushed the management to make changes in the coaching staff.

Chelsea seem unstoppable and will be out to extend their leadership in the league standings. They have a great run and are functioning well both in defence and attack.

United had a morale boosting win over Villarreal but this will be a different kind of opposition and we are backing Chelsea to win.
