King of Stats: all the numbers for Chelsea v Man Utd
Although a victory for either team at this stage of the season will not have a defining impact on the Premier League title picture, a win for Chelsea would see them move seven points ahead of one of their biggest rivals.
Alternatively, a Manchester United triumph would see the gap at the top bridged to a single point.
Here are some vital statistics that could help punters decide what the result will be in London.
10 – The number of years since Manchester United last left Stamford Bridge with three points in the Premier League. That day Man Utd won 3-0 and Paul Scholes scored the opener. The scorecast on the same this season can be backed at 175/1.
13 – The number of times that Chelsea have beaten Man Utd in the Premier League. They are the only team to have won more against the Red Devils than they have lost (12). The most common Chelsea winning margin is 1-0 and it is 8/1 that this occurs for the sixth time.
2- David Luiz has scored in both of his Premier League appearances against Man Utd at Stamford Bridge and he is a guaranteed starter with John Terry banned. Luiz is 10/1 to score at any time in the 90 minutes this time.
7 – Manchester United have scored at least twice in all seven Premier League games this season since losing to Everton on the opening day. They can be backed at 5/4 to score over 1.5 goals again here.
4- Sir Alex Ferguson’s team have been behind in six Premier League games this season, but have turned things around to win on four occasions, while this has also happened in three of their last four games in all competitions. Therefore, 10/1 may prove a big price on another repeat at Chelsea.
0 – Neither team have dropped a single point this season from a winning position. 9/1 is the price for a 0-0 draw to keep these respective streaks alive.
5 – Wayne Rooney has scored five goals in his last six showdowns with Chelsea in all competitions. He is 6/1 to open the scoring, 7/4 to be on target at any time in the 90 minutes and 33/1 to help himself to a hat-trick.
