When the Premier League fixture list was released last year, Manchester United’s tough run-in – they travel to Manchester City, Tottenham and Arsenal in the coming weeks - looked like the type of period which would decide the fate of the title in Jose Mourinho’s first season. The Portuguese, it should not be forgotten, won the trophy with Chelsea in 2015 before being unceremoniously sacked by the west Londoners after a diabolical start to their defence.
His campaign at Old Trafford, however, has been ultimately disappointing. Though levels of performances have increased and attacking play has been infinitely better than in Louis van Gaal’s final season in charge, a lack of cutting edge, particularly at home, has meant that United are languishing in fifth place and not looking likely to advance to the Champions League via the domestic route. That leaves success in the Europa League as their best chance – they face Anderlecht in the last eight.
Chelsea, meanwhile, are effectively certain of a return to Europe’s elite club competition and look set to win the title as well. Their form and consistency has been sublime ever since Antonio Conte tweaked his team’s formation to a 3-4-3, getting the perfect balance. They have been almost unstoppable, losing just four times and getting a seven-point lead with 75 points already. Last week’s win over Manchester City means that they head to Old Trafford in a position of great strength and can afford to drop points against their hosts who, while only losing at their stadium just once, have drawn nine times and struggled for goals.
The two teams have met twice already and Chelsea’s rampant 4-0 win at Stamford Bridge in October was the last time that Mourinho’s men have tasted defeat in the league. Last month in the FA Cup, again at the Bridge, the Blues were 1-0 winners to book a semi-final against Tottenham. The double for Conte, it seems, is very much on.
With United’s long unbeaten run, it has hard to see them getting beaten. However, Chelsea’s stunning form makes them the most likely to do it before the season ends and they can be backed at 2.85. With United’s penchant for home draws, such an outcome is rated at 3.20, while a home win is 2.65.
