Chelsea vs Manchester United 7 Feb 2016: EPL Preview and Predictions

Chelsea will be hosting their old rivals Manchester United in what will be one of the lowliest rated derbies. Both teams have had terrible seasons and this is the stage of the year where it looks like pride is what is most on the line. Both teams have talent but have wasted it so it should still be a good game and I will be watching it for old times sake, although things are not like they were.  

Chelsea are coming off an away draw to Watford and this will not please them since these are games they should breeze through. That being said they didn’t do it so this weekend they will be more motivated than ever. They are at home for this match and it will be an amazing atmosphere at Stamford Bridge and the Blue will hope that they will be enough to motivate them to get over the line.

Manchester United on the other hand will be a little more pleased since they managed to string up a few wins and that will give them a lot of satisfaction. That being said this game will mean a lot more to them since this is a derby and they will know that the momentum they could get here could be season defining.

Overall, I think that this will be a close game but I think that they home crowd will be a little too tough for the Red Devils and the Blues should get over the line here. I think that betting on the outright result is the best play here since it is a good price and all the other bets have way too much risk in my opinion.
