Chelsea vs Manchester United Bet Builder Tips: Back this 14/1 double as The Blues welcome United
Manchester United travel to Chelsea for a tea-time kick-off in the Premier League on Saturday. The game is live on Sky Sports at 5:30pm and here at BettingOdds.com we’ve taken a look at some player statistics that will hopefully lead to some profitable punting.
We’ve taken a look at shots, goals, cards, and tackles and have put together a Bet Builder that we like the look of. The double can be backed at 14/1 with Paddy Power at the time of writing.
Chelsea vs Manchester United Bet Builder Tips
Cristiano Ronaldo may have been in the headlines over the last couple of days, but one player who put in a magnificent performance in his absence on Wednesday was Bruno Fernandes, who we are focussing on in the first half of our Bet Builder on Saturday.
We’ll be hoping that the Manchester United man can find his way into Stuart Attwell’s notebook and are backing him to be carded. Last season, only three players in the entire division picked up more yellow cards than Bruno Fernandes with 10 in 36 appearances. Fernandes averaged 0.9 fouls per game in 21/22 and that figure has increased to 1.5 per game this season.
It’s also worth noting that eight of his last 10 yellow cards came away from Old Trafford, and in just 19 matches. This term, the 28-year-old has started with four yellows in his first 10, and with a tough trip to Stamford Bridge on the cards this weekend this looks a wise play.
The second half of this 14/1 poke also concerns a Manchester United player. This time it’s summer signing Antony that we are concentrating on by backing him to have 2+ shots on target in the match.
Since arriving from Ajax, Antony has scored in three of his five Premier League matches for his new side and is fast becoming a bit of a shot-monster in our eyes with an average of 4 shots per 90 minutes!
With Ronaldo out of the side there is opportunity for Antony, Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho to really step up and score the goals. We have seen plenty of intent from the Brazilian already this term and they can follow up what was their best performance this season against Spurs with another positive result on Saturday.
