Chelsea vs. Man Utd Betting Tips: Casemiro to be carded in Stamford Bridge Bet Builder
Live on Sky Sports, Chelsea host Manchester United in the premier league at the Old Trafford Stadium this Saturday. The hosts have been in fine form since Graham Potter took charge as the head coach, going unbeaten in their last seven games in all competitions and keeping clean sheets in five consecutive games.
The Blues sit 4th in the league table with 20 points and were held to a 0-0 draw away at Brentford after a five game winning run. As for the visitors, they are also in fine form under new manager Ten Hag coming off the back of an impressive 2-0 win against Conte’s Tottenham. They sit just 1 point behind Chelsea and every head to head match will be crucial in the race for the Champions League spots. Games between these two sides have been too close to call in recent history, with their last 4 consecutive meetings ending in a draw. Chelsea are unbeaten so far this season at home but this will be their biggest test under Graham Potter. As for Manchester United, they have already beaten the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham so far this season so will be confident of going to Stamford Bridge and getting a positive result.
A massive premier league clash awaits us and as usual, I have you covered with two of my best betting angles for this game included in the preview below:
Reece James, Wesley Fofana & N’Golo Kante are out for Chelsea while Conor Gallagher is doubtful.
Anthony Martial, Donny Van de Beek, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Harry Maguire & Brandon Williams are out for Manchester United while Christian Eriksen is doubtful.

Kepa; Azpilicueta, Silva, Chalobah; Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell; Sterling, Mount; Aubameyang

Chelsea vs Man Utd Tips
- Antony Over 1.5 shots in the match
- Over 0 cards in the match for Man United
- Over 0 Corners for Chelsea
Antony is averaging 3.6 shots per game for Manchester United so far this season. He has had 4,4,2,5 and 3 shots in his five premier league appearances and three of those games were against Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City. He loves a pop from distance and has already scored three goals for Manchester United so far this season.
As for the cards, Manchester United have received at least one card in every single game so far this season and considering this is a hugely significant game in the top 4 race, a card for the away side should be a banker. Combining these 2 selections gives us a solid bet builder @ evens and I am happy to stake 1pt on that as our main bet for this game.
The last four head to head meetings between these two sides have ended in draws and both teams are on a good run of form at the moment. It is very hard to split them and I can see points being shared at Stamford Bridge again. Casemiro averages the most tackles (2.9) per game for Manchester United and has picked up a yellow card in his last 2 appearances in the Premier League. I can see him mistiming a tackle to pick up another booking.
Combining these 2 selections gives us a cracking longshot @ 7/1 and I am happy to stake a very small 0.25pt stake on that as my 2nd bet for this game.
Best of luck if you follow these selections. Please always gamble responsibly
