Chelsea vs Man. United by Marlo
Mourinho's men and thier impeccable home record will be up to the test when Manchester United come to town.
Last time out I opposed Manchester United with Swansea +1Ah and at half time a 0-0 result looked good. However, Swansea found themselves 2-0 down rather quickly and just couldn't get on the scoresheet to at least force a push in the pick. I don't regret opposing Manchester United there and have no qualms about opposing them here. Swansea just weren't good enough. This time around I will put my faith in a much stronger unit.
MOurinho is a true tactician. He does just what is required to come away with results when necessary. On trips to Gunners and Manchester United, he set his team up and delegated instructions necessary to gain draws as to not offer any advantage to his rivals.
At home, he intends to inflict damage and remain undefeated and against Liverpool they managed to win even after conceding first.
Manchester United will not be expected to win this match. It would have been a match Fergie would have been happy to collect a point from. However, for Moyes, a point will be a tremendous result, but I don't see it happening especially considering that Manchester United have failed to score against Chelsea in their last 3 games against each other.
United's start to games, both home and away have been tentative and full of uncertainty. They struggle to assert themselves and take a while to get into the groove, something they could well regret here if they don't hit the ground running early. An early goal for the Blues could make for a long afternoon.
United could be without Jones, Rooney and Evra. Even if they welcome them back the confidence is not there at the moment and Hazard should prove a real handful.
Chelsea will need a win here to keep pace with City who have an easier game at home to Cardiff and Arsenal who are at home to Fulham.
Odds should drop come game time and even shorter when line ups are announced. 4/5 generally available is good enough. High stakes here.
-1AH is a consideration but odds for outright are worthwhile so little need to be greedy.
