Bet Live on Football: Chelsea vs. Manchester UnitedPublished January 19, 2014 by OCR Editor
Chelsea vs. Manchester United, 4pm UK time.
Today over at Stamford Bridge, home team Chelsea host Manchester United for the Premier League gameweek 22. Despite Manchester United's coping difficulties with the departure of legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson, this match between the Blues and the Red Devils is still expected to be a classic.
Chelsea is positioned three in the Premier League's table with 46 points (14w, 4d, 3l). The Blues are on a six unbeaten match run with only one draw against Arsenal in December. Chelsea's got the chance to read the last rites for Manchester United's title defense. Jose Mourinho's team is planning big, having just spent £21 million on Nemanja Matic from Benfica.
This could indeed be the swan song for Manchester United for this season's hopes for titles and even a Champions League qualification, also depending on Liverpool's match against Aston Villa. Manchester United is positioned 7 th in the table with 37 points (11w, 4d, 6l). The injuries plaguing David Moyes' teams will certainly not make today's Stamford Bridge experience any easier - Wayne Rooney's groin injury might see him out for the following few weeks and striker Robin van Persie is still out due to his injury. This is a decisive match for both parties involved: Chelsea wants to stay relevant in the top and United seeks to stay relevant in general.
