Chelsea vs Man United Preview

Chelsea and Man United are struggling for momentum in the Premier League and a draw is likely at the Bridge. The Blues’ top scorer Cole Palmer is in electric form and there is value on the forward to net again.

  • Chelsea have drawn 3 of their last 4 matches (Premier League)
  • Chelsea’s Cole Palmer has scored 4 goals in his last 3 matches
  • Chelsea have drawn their last 3 home matches against Man United
  • Man United have drawn their last 2 matches


Man United have an 83-55 advantage against Chelsea in 194 meetings with 56 draws.

Chelsea Form

Chelsea fell into the bottom half of the Premier League after dropping points in three of their last four fixtures.

The Blues drew at Man City (1-1) and Brentford (2-2) and beat Newcastle (3-2) before the international break. Another draw at home against relegation-threatened Burnley (2-2) followed.

Cole Palmer struck first on 43 minutes before Burnley levelled. Palmer scored again with 13 minutes left and Chelsea conceded another equaliser in the 80th minute. 

Chelsea Injuries & Team News

Defensive duo Wesley Fofana and Reece James and goalkeeper Robert Sánchez are out.

Midfielders Lesley Ugochukwu and Roméo Lavia and striker Christopher Nkunku are also ruled out.

Man United Form

Man United’s top-four hopes have dipped after two losses and a draw in their last four. 

United lost to Fulham (2-1) and Man City (3-1) before responding with a 2-0 win against Everton. The Red Devil’s inconsistent form continued with a 1-1 draw at Brentford on Saturday.

Erik Ten Hag’s side were outplayed at Brentford with 0.99-3.16 expected goals. Mason Mount scored late against the run of play and United shipped a 98th-minute equaliser. 

Man United Injuries & Team News

Defenders Luke Shaw, Tyrell Malacia and Victor Lindelöf are ruled out.

Striker Anthony Martial is also unavailable due to injury. 


Sticking with a draw is the best bet between unconvincing Chelsea and Man United. There is also value on backing Cole Palmer to strike for a fourth consecutive match.
