One of the top soccer betting events this weekend will be between Manchester United and Chelsea.
The contest will take place at Stamford Bridge and there is not expected to be much difference in United’s approach to the one that they adopted in the game against Liverpool a fortnight ago. United had the sole intention of stopping the opposition from getting a stranglehold in the match. They did not concentrate much on going forward and had only one shot on target in the entire 90 minutes. A similar approach is expected for the Sunday’s game at Stamford Bridge by bookmakers.
Manchester United have been going to a poor patch of form in the last five matches and they have managed only one league victory in these games. As a result, they are backed at just 12/5for a win, which would see manager José Mourinho celebrating upon his return. Mourinho is coming back to Stamford Bridge seven months after being sacked by the club, but with Manchester United.
After losing in the big matches against Liverpool and Arsenal, Chelsea have recovered to win back-to-back games in the league. This form coupled with the home advantage sees them backed at 6/5 for the win in Canada with Bet365
The best odds for the game, though, will be for a stalemate. Both teams are backed at 23/10 to get a point a piece. Ahead of the game, manager Antonio Conte claimed that he is not the type of boss to go all-out defensive in the search for a point. “I think that when you have a lot of time with a man and you won a lot with him, you love this man. You love this person for the relationship you were able to create in this time. I think the players want to win, but have great respect for him. It’s right, this,” said Conte about Mourinho.
