On Sunday afternoon, two teams fighting for the Champions League spots in the Premier League, Manchester United and Chelsea clash at Old Trafford.
Manchester United’s priority this season in the Premier League is now to secure a top-four finish with neighbours Manchester City now 16 points clear at the top of the table.
The Red Devils recent form in the top-flight has not been great, as Jose Mourinho’s men have suffered defeats in two of their last three league outings, including a 1-0 defeat at relegation-threatened Newcastle in their last Premier League game.
United’s recent games in the English top-flight have been low scoring, with under 2.5 goals scored in six of their last seven league outings, including their last four league games.
The Red Devils are hard to beat at Old Trafford, though, as they have lost just once in 30 games on home soil in the Premier League. United are just three points clear of the visitors in the table and four points clear of fifth-place Spurs, so cannot afford to lose this game.
Chelsea’s recent Premier League form has been highly inconsistent, winning two and losing two of their last four league games. Antonio Conte’s side recorded a 3-0 win over struggling West Brom in their last top-flight outing.
Their recent Premier League games have been high scoring, as their last four games in the top-flight have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
The Blues recent away record in the top-flight has been inconsistent, but the visitors have won just two of their last seven outings in the top-flight on their travels. Their recent away games have been high scoring, with over 2.5 goals scored in four of their last five games.
Forebet predicts that Manchester United will record a victory in a high scoring game at Old Trafford.
