Chelsea host Manchester United on Thursday night. Although these sides have struggled this season, the visitors still have an outside chance of qualifying for the Champions League.

Both Mauricio Pochettino and Erik Ten Hag feel the heat as we approach the end of the campaign. Chelsea failed to beat 10-man Burnley at the weekend. United, on the other hand, were utterly outplayed by Brentford and were fortunate enough to earn a point.

Chelsea’s Improving Home Record is Key

Manchester United’s results have so far been positive in 2024. Therefore, the first of our predictions for this Premier League match is for Chelsea to win on the 1×2 market. Erik Ten Hag’s team has struggled defensively. They have faced more shots than any other side in the top flight in 2024. United have finished 11 of their 15 away matches with a worse xG than their opponents in this campaign.

Chelsea have lost just one of their last 16 matches at Stamford Bridge. They have won 10 of those matches and should have plenty of chances against a United side that is struggling to keep their opponents at bay.

Goals on the Agenda

The second of our Chelsea vs Manchester United predictions is Chelsea’s double chance and over 2.5 goals in the match. The Blues’ last 10 home matches have seen an average of 3.8 goals, with Pochettino’s team averaging 2.5 per game.

Although Manchester United won the reverse fixture against Chelsea 2-1, there should have been plenty more goals. Ten Hag’s side earned their win and missed plenty of chances, but should face a tougher challenge away.

United have a poor away record against the sides that usually find themselves in the top half of the table, so they shouldn’t win this one. Their six away matches in the league in 2024 have seen an average of 3.67 goals.

Bet 2: Chelsea double chance and over 2.5 goals @ 1.93 Bet9ja

Wilting Defences Mean Chances Galore

The third bet for this match is for both teams to score in both halves at odds of 6.70 with Bet9ja. Manchester United have been conceding an average of 17.17 shots per Premier League game this season.

Only Luton and Sheffield United have afforded their opponents more opportunities to score. This presents Chelsea with numerous scoring chances. Pochettino’s men have found the net in both halves in their last four matches at Stamford Bridge.

Only a win will do for Manchester United and they have the attackers to trouble Chelsea’s defence that has struggled to keep clean sheets. They have been averaging two goals per league game in 2024, so let’s hope they can spread them across each half.

Bet 3: First-half/second-half – GG/GG @ 6.70 Bet9ja

Palmer Has the Midas Touch

The last of our Chelsea vs Manchester United predictions is for Cole Palmer to score. This promises to be a goal-laden affair and the former Manchester City player has been the shining light of Chelsea’s season. Palmer scored in the defeat at Old Trafford earlier this season.

Palmer has scored 13 goals and registered eight assists in the Premier League this season. His non-penalty xG of 0.3 per 90 minutes played means he ranks in the top 20% of attacking midfielders and wingers amongst players in Europe’s top five leagues. Cole also has the responsibility of taking spot kicks for Chelsea, so his price looks good.
