Chelsea News: Man United v Chelsea betting tips and odds plus Premier League picks

November 16, 2019

With Liverpool expected to brush Huddersfield aside on Friday night, Manchester City fans will be looking for more of the same when their team travels to Burnley on Sunday City head for Turf Moor having beaten the Clarets 5-0 twice already this season.Elsewhere, Manchester United host Chelsea in fight for a top-four finish with Arsenal at Leicester and Tottenham welcoming West Ham to their new stadium Here’s our game-by-game guide to Saturday and Sunday – all kick-offs 3pm on Saturday unless stated   Tottenham v West Ham – Saturday 12.30pmWest Ham’s rotten record on the road at the big six was flagged up before they played Manchester United a fortnight ago and although they were unfortunate to go down 2-1 to a pair of Paul Pogba penalties, their return when travelling to the teams at the top is now six defeats on the bounce with the goal count 16 against and just three scored They are without a victory in 20 of these matches since a 2-1 triumph at Manchester City more than three and a half years ago So, it doesn’t look good for them, especially with Tottenham loving life at their new place with four wins from four – against Crystal Palace, Man City, Huddersfield and Brighton – and yet to let in a goal West Ham will be desperate to muddy the new carpet or knock over an ornament and games between them can be quite close – nine of the last 11 in all competitions have been settled by a one-goal margin or finished all square But West Ham will do well to keep this one tight and Spurs are 5/11 for the win, 37/10 to win by two goals while the 11/1 they win 3-1 is a decent shout for a correct score Crystal Palace v EvertonPlenty has been written about Selhurst Park not exactly being the place to go for Premier League thrills this season but with the pressure off, two teams who have been enjoying themselves over the past week could serve up a post-Easter treat Last Sunday Palace took advantage of Unai Emery’s tinkering to win at Arsenal after Everton had blown Manchester United away The Toffees’ result was the more impressive and the same can be said of their recent run of four wins from five outings and every victory coming without the loss of a goal The Eagles have been more up and down and with the away win available at 15/8, Everton is the pick for this one Fulham v CardiffScott Parker claimed last week that the confidence in the Fulham camp was sky high and punters should have listened as he then sent his side out to beat Bournemouth for a first away win in the league at the 18th time of asking Sportsmail’s Martin Keown said they’re playing without fear now the pressure of scrapping for survival has gone But that fear is very much alive for Neil Warnock and Cardiff. They need to take something from this one as Brighton, the only team they’ve beaten in their last five games, are three points ahead of them with a much better goal difference A draw looks the best bet and with both teams scoring it’s 7/2 while 1-1 is 13/2 Southampton v BournemouthIt’s been almost impossible to track Bournemouth over the past few weeks with home defeats at the hands of Burnley and Fulham sandwiching a thumping 5-0 victory at Brighton One pattern that is easier to follow, however, is their head-to-head record against Southampton They’ve never won at Saints in any competition, drawing five times and losing the other nine when they’ve travelled along the south coast They don’t look anything like ready to buck the trend and with Saints winning three of their last four at home in the league – as many as they had in the 24 before that – a home win jumps off the page Southampton are just under evens with most bookies. James Ward-Prowse is 11/4 to score at any time Watford v WolvesBoth teams to score looks nailed on in this one. Wolves haven’t kept a clean sheet in any of their last 13 away games in the Premier League and that’s the longest current run in the division But after watching the way they took out Arsenal just a few nights ago, it’s hard to see them not scoring At the other end, only Liverpool and the Gunners have shut out Watford in 13 games since a goalless draw at Brighton at the start of February Both teams to score is no better than 10/11 but take a look at the 9/2 both score in the first half while over 3 5 total goals in the game is 10/3.Brighton v Newcastle – Saturday 5.30pmShot-shy Brighton have now gone SEVEN games without scoring – that’s even worse than Manchester United, who have been getting a serious amount of criticism It’s more looks of sympathy rather than stick that have been directed towards Chris Hughton and Co, however, as they give Cardiff another glimmer of hope with each passing week At the opposite end of the country, the Toon, for a change, are in fine fettle. They’ve won two in a row, ended an eight-game winless run on the road by beating Leicester and have Ayoze Perez coming off the back of a hat-trick against Southampton that took him to six goals in his last six games For the first time in a while Newcastle look a decent shout away from home. They are 13/5 to win and 7/1 for the points having been level at the break Leicester v Arsenal – Sunday 12pmArsenal are no cowboys but they do love a showdown at high noon Opta delivered a little nugget ahead of the weekend action at the King Power and it’s that the Gunners have never lost a Premier League game that has kicked off at midday They’ve won 15 with four ending all square. They probably didn’t go into many on the back of shipping six goals in two losses to Crystal Palace and Wolves though It’s amazing how quickly good work can be undone – they had won six of seven in all competitions before last weekend, and they’re now in a fight to finish in the top four To have any chance of winning that battle, they’ll need to take the points at Leicester Arsenal’s defence and away form have been criticised lately but Leicester have also let standards slip after a decent run – losing at home to Newcastle and needing a last-gasp leveller against West Ham The visitors are 13/8, 10/3 to win with both teams scoring and the same price to win by a one-goal margin Burnley v Manchester City – Sunday 2.05pmManchester City have been writing history books for the best part of two seasons now but they could set another new record with a big win at Turf Moor They’ve beaten Burnley 5-0 twice this season already and, according to Opta, in the history of English football, no team has scored five or more goals against another three times in a campaign The price for a third 5-0 is 15/1 but it’s a while since City were making a habit of hammering opponents Only three of their 20 matches since the most recent 5-0 over Burnley (in January) have been won by more than a two-goal margin – Chelsea (6-0), Newport (4-1) and Schalke (7-0) Burnley, 25/1 shots, are bobbing along right now with three wins on the spin before Monday’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea so it’s hard to see them crumbling City are 6/1 to win 2-0 and the same price for 3-0.Manchester United v Chelsea – Sunday 4 30pm‘The stats that shame Manchester United’ screamed the banner headline on MailOnline Sport the morning after they they were beaten by derby rivals City Rather than write them all again (it would take too long, there’s loads of them), here’s the link But the gist of it is, it’s even worse than it was last week – and it was bad then Everton were easy to back against United, who have now lost seven of their last nine games in all competitions They are without a clean sheet in 12 for the first time since 1971 and haven’t scored since April 13 against West Ham, that’s four hours and 40 minutes But it’s actually almost nine hours since they scored from open play as two Paul Pogba penalties downed the Hammers So, a Chelsea win then? At 7/4 they’ll have their backers. But the Blues aren’t covering themselves in glory as the season reaches its conclusion They’re in the Europa League semis but, in their last three, lost to Liverpool, let Slavia Prague score three times at Stamford Bridge and drew with Burnley United and Chelsea have already drawn 2-2 this season and a repeat of that is more likely than the FA Cup triumph United enjoyed in west London in February Any score draw is 7/2 while 2-2 is 14/1.
