BETTING PREVIEW: MANCHESTER UNITED vs CHELSEA

EPL

Manchester United will be looking to continue their recent good form when Chelsea arrive at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils somewhat surprisingly beat PSG in their Champions League opener and now must do it all over again when Chelsea lineup at the Theatre of Dreams.

Question marks surround the availability of United trio of Edinson Cavani, Harry Maguire and Mason Greenwood. All three will be given as much time as possible by Ole Gunnar Solsjkaer ahead of kick-off where the hosts are looking to beat Chelsea in three consecutive matches for the first time.

The visitors were held by Sevilla in midweek but manager Frank Lampard was more concerned about his defensive issues. The goalless draw was welcomed after watching his side squander a 2-0 lead last week against Southampton in what turned out to be a 3-3 draw.

“It’s a positive result. I understood the need to get a result in the first game of the group,” Lampard told reporters.

“They’re a really good team, it was an interesting game and I’m happy with the 0-0; it was a big deal to get a clean sheet.”

Since the start of last season, Chelsea’s Premier League away matches have featured more goals than any other side’s, with 87. They have shipped a competition-high 42 goals on the road in that period. So expect goals.

Suggested bet: Manchester United to win at 2.30
