AVB has lost the dressing room
Chelsea have struggled in the Premier League this season. They are twelve points adrift of the Manchester clubs at the top of the table and the fans will be devastated that Tottenham are the in-form team in London.
Chelsea are seemingly playing for fourth place and a place in next seasons Champions League. Whether AVB is still manager next season is speculative. They are not the force of old, those that were Mourinho's men are aging and the new signings have not helped produce the desired results.
Maybe it is Man City's new found money but United also appear weaker than recent seasons. Unlike Chelsea, they are out of the Champions League and FA Cup. Nani is not the new Ronaldo and Paul Scholes has had to come out of retirement to help the club.
However, they could well beat Chelsea tomorrow at 7/4. The home win is 17/10 and the draw is 2/1.
Chelsea look more susceptible than ever, the press have circled the club since Terry has once again lost England captaincy and he is missing for the clash. Ashley Cole is suspended and Drogba is at the Africa Nations.
Man Utd have the best defensive record in the league, they have conceded only seven goals away from home all season. Man Utd are a big price at 21/10 to keep a clean sheet. Chelsea are struggling infront of goal, Torres (2/1, anytime scorer) is still without a goal since the end of September. Sturridge (2/1, anytime scorer) is also goalless since before Christmas.
The Match Winner offer is for Torres to score at anytime and Chelsea to win, it has been enhanced from 3/1. Chelsea may have lost the reverse fixture 3-1 but it was arguably their best game of the season and Chelsea's £50m rated striker scored in the first half. Torres will be desperate to repay the Chelsea fans loyalty against United.
The Blues' Gary Cahill will be hoping to make his debut against United. He was the major signing for the club during the winter transfer window. He has what it takes to stifle Rooney and he is not bad at the opposite end of the pitch, he looks a big price to score at 8/1 anytime
Another player that could have a big role to play against the Red Devils is Essien. He will be like a new signing for the Blues. He has spent the majority of the last few seasons crocked but he is immense. He can shoot from distance and he has sensational distribution. He is 14/1 to score the last goal of the game.
Scholes should start for United and he will relish the clash. He is 20/1 to open the scoring and this is likely to be his last competitive match at the Bridge.
The bet of the match has to be Man United at 19/20 draw no bet. City are likely to get three points on Saturday against Fulham and with a rift reported in the Chelsea dressing room, yet again another team can come to the Bridge and take three points.
