Bets Flying In As Chelsea Take On Manchester United
Manchester United are last season's champions but Chelsea, under new boss "Big Phil" Scolari who led Brazil to victory in the 2002 World Cup, will be out for revenge. They held the title prior to United.
"This has just got draw written all over it! Chelsea will come into the game saying ‘don’t lose’. United will be saying ‘we can’t let them beat us’," says BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson. "Managers don’t necessarily pick teams to reflect that but these games are always tight. There will be bound to be talking points and possibly a sending off but a draw will certainly favour Liverpool."
If you trust "Lawro" then many online bookies including PaddyPower and 888.com are offering 11/5 odds on his predicted draw. Best odds for a Manchester United win are also from PaddyPower at 13/10 but if you're a true blue then Coral will give you 11/4 on a Chelsea win.
