Manchester United – Chelsea FC

On Thursday, the Red Devils host the Blues at their place, who have just emerged from a crisis. The Red Devils will try to secure their place in the Champions League in this catch-up match from matchday 32 of the Premier League.

On the other hand, the visitors from London, who can’t win anything anymore, will still try to end the season on a conciliatory note by trying to keep up at Old Trafford for as long as possible. The kick-off of the match will be at 21:00. Find out who we think will prevail in our Man United – Chelsea betting tips.

Man United Form & Balance Check

With just under a week to go before their FA Cup final against their blue city rivals, United have yet to secure their place in the Champions League for next season. Despite playing one game less, the Manchester club are only three points clear of Liverpool, who have stepped up their game in recent weeks.

With a much worse goal difference than the Reds, partly due to the 7-0 defeat at Anfield, Manchester United therefore need just a single point in their next two games to ensure they return to the Champions League.

Will United get the CL?

Compared to the Blues, who are in big trouble this season and have nothing left to win, Erik Ten Hag’s men will try to secure the top four as early as Thursday so they can then focus on their FA Cup final and take it easy.

After their back-to-back defeats to Brighton and West Ham, the Red Devils got themselves back on track with wins over Wolverhampton (2-0) and Bournemouth (1-0).

As a result, the Manchester club need only avoid defeat at Old Trafford to reward themselves – in addition to winning the EFL Cup – for one of their best seasons in several years.

Man United facts & analysis
  • 4th place in the Premier League table.
  • Third best defence in the Premier League
  • Last two Premier League games won by nil

Chelsea form & balance check

Despite a slight improvement, Chelsea have fallen back into old patterns. Against the Citizens, who were already celebrating their Premier League championship, the Blues severely lacked assertiveness. They could not take a point from the Etihad Stadium, which would have consoled them somewhat about the desolate season.

So, despite six shots on goal and a higher total of expected goals than their opponents, the London club recorded a seventh defeat in their ninth game.

Not enough traction

Nevertheless, this defeat changes nothing for Chelsea as they are playing for nothing this season anyway. Only the 11th place in the table could still be won by Chelsea, which of course is symbolic for the weak season. To do so, the Blues have to beat the Red Devils, who are eager to finally fix their qualification for the Champions League.

As was the case at the weekend, a win in Manchester would mitigate a disastrous end to the season, but it will require a marked improvement in performance from Frank Lampard’s men.

Chelsea facts & analysis
  • 12th place in the table
  • 17th place in the second round table
  • One win from last twelve matches
