Man Utd vs Chelsea Preview
England, Premier League, Thursday, 25th May, 20:00 (UK)
After a difficult run put Manchester United under pressure in the top four race, they have notched consecutive wins, leaving them in a far more comfortable position. Erik ten Hag has had to deal with some injury issues — Marcus Rashford has missed several matches and Lautaro Martinez was ruled out for the season. Rashford will have to be assessed before this one after sitting out the win over Bournemouth through illness.
Chelsea have one win in their last 12 matches after losing to Manchester City on Sunday. They have lost seven of nine across all competitions. The Blues have failed to beat Manchester United in their last 10 meetings, and haven’t claimed victory at Old Trafford since 2013.
Mason Mount, Reece James and N’Golo Kante are just three of the numerous Chelsea players ruled out. Having had nothing to play for since being knocked out of the Champions League, Chelsea have been going through the motions. Only Everton, Southampton and Wolves have scored fewer Premier League goals this term.
United only need a point to secure a top four finish. They have suffered just one defeat at Old Trafford in the league this season, and their eight home goals conceded is the fewest of any Premier League side. Chelsea have won just five of their 18 matches on the road.

Man Utd vs Chelsea Bet Builder
The modern rivalry between these teams means very little to this match. Nothing is riding on this for Chelsea, with Frank Lampard leaving at the end of the season and so many first-team players unavailable. United qualifying for the Champions League is a formality at this point, and there is a huge gap between these teams this season.
United should break the streak of draws. Their points tally at home is only bettered by Liverpool and Manchester City, plus they have won their last four league matches at Old Trafford to nil.
Chelsea’s attack has been ineffective all season. They have squandered chances, massively underachieving their underlying metrics, but their expected goals tally is also poor.
Leeds, Leicester and West Ham have all accumulated more expected goals than Chelsea in 2022-23. The west London club have scored under two goals in nine of their last 11 matches across all competitions.
The presence of Casemiro has been massive in improving United’s defence. The former Real Madrid midfielder shields the central defenders, breaking up play with ease. Chelsea attempt the most dribbles in the Premier League, and only four teams are dispossessed more often per match.
Look for Casemiro to thwart Chelsea attacks throughout the match. He had five tackles when these teams met at Stamford Bridge, and has had three or more in each of his last five appearances.
For the final leg of this bet builder, Bruno Fernandes is the focus. Fernandes has not had his most productive season, but he remains integral to United’s attacking play. He has had over 1.5 shots in seven straight Premier League matches. The Portuguese international should be able to fire off a few attempts against a Chelsea team which has conceded an average of 13 shots over its last four.
- Manchester United to win
- Chelsea to score under 2 goals
- Casemiro Over 2.5 tackles
- Bruno Fernandes over 1.5 shots
