On the upcoming Wednesday, Manchester United will host London Chelsea at their home ground within the 33rd round of the EPL. The duel can be called the highlight of the round, as Man Utd are fighting to be in the EPL’s top four, while the Blues are very close to become champions this season. Bookmakers don’t see a clear favorite of the encounter, thinking, that the future competitors have approximately equal chances on success in the forthcoming game.
It should not be forgotten, that Manchester United are one of two English teams, which still perform in the Eurocups, and last Thursday, the Mancunians flew to Belgium, where they had a match against Anderlecht. The score of the encounter was 1:1 and Mourinho used basically the first squad in the game. Man Utd did not lose a single time, but at the same time there were only two victories: over Middlesbrough and Sunderland.
As for Chelsea, they misfired only once within the last five matches: on 1st April Conte’s team unexpectedly lost to Crystal Palace in a domestic match. Apart from that, there were victories over Manchester United in the English Cup, Stoke City, Manchester City and Bournemouth. Chelsea have 75 points in the asset and are on the first position in the EPL tournament table after 31 played rounds.
Manchester United will host Chelsea after the most difficult match against Anderlecht, while the Blues could have easily prepared for the upcoming game in a weekly cycle. It would not be easy for Mourinho’s team in the upcoming game. Chelsea are very good right now and the team will try to earn some points.
Prediction for the match: Chelsea not to lose.
