Chelsea v Manchester United betting tips: Tough Premier League start for Carrick
Chelsea v Man Utd betting tips and odds
All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge this weekend as Chelsea and Manchester United lock horns after successful outings in Europe.
Michael Carrick got off to a winning start as interim manager as United booked their place in the knockout stage of the Champions League with a 2-0 victory at Villarreal on Tuesday, and on the same night the Blues crushed Juventus 4-0 to seal their place in the last 16.
The Premier League leaders are 3/5 to maintain their impressive start to the season on Sunday, but let’s look at some of the other markets in our Chelsea v Man Utd betting tips.
Carrick takes temporary charge of United for the first and possibly last time in the Premier League following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s dismissal after the humiliating 4-1 defeat at Watford, although Ralf Rangnick is reportedly waiting in the wings.
The Red Devils are the 9/2 outsiders to win in west London despite being on a seven-match unbeaten run against the Blues in the Premier League.
Last season, both encounters ended goalless, so we go 3/1 on another draw or 12/1 on 0-0 once more, but Chelsea are flying at the moment and will not get a better chance of ending their poor run against Sunday’s visitors.

Last weekend, Thomas Tuchel’s side imperiously swept aside Leicester 3-0 for their eighth clean sheet in 12 games and they are available at 9/5 to win to nil.
United may have kept a clean sheet in Spain, but they have conceded 15 goals in their last five Premier League games, so the hosts are 7/5 to win and over 2.5 goals.
The Blues to win either half, to score at least twice and keep a clean sheet is 3/1 and they are 9/4 to win and concede as one of our Chelsea v Man Utd betting tips.
The Blues ran riot against the Italian giants on Tuesday, but the evening was marred by knee injuries to Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante.
Chilwell’s injury seems to be the worst of the two, with Tuchel saying: “He was in a lot of pain at the time on the pitch. Now he feels a little better…Hopefully, we will get away with not too bad news.”

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Cesar Azpilicueta replaced the pair, so they are in the frame to start Sunday’s game, although it remains to be seen whether Kai Havertz is fit following a hamstring injury sustained at Leicester, but Timo Werner scored from off the bench on Tuesday and Romelu Lukaku was an unused substitute.
Carrick started with Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial in the usual 4-2-3-1 formation on Tuesday, although the last two mentioned were replaced midway through the second half.
Captain Harry Maguire is suspended following his red card at Watford, so Eric Bailly can stake his claim alongside Victor Lindelof.
Werner is 5/1 and 2/1 in the two markets, but Blues defenders continue to be among the goals so we go 10/1 on Reece James bagging the opener as he did at Newcastle or 4/1 on the right-back scoring his sixth goal of the season.
Antonio Rudiger drew first blood at the King Power and is 25/1 to do so again or 9/1 to get on the scoresheet as one of our Chelsea v Man Utd betting tips
For United, Cristiano Ronaldo is 6/1 to get the game’s first goal as he did in Spain or 23/10 to score, while Sancho is 14/1 and 11/2 in the two options.
