Mourinho's Chelsea 2.0 project has been good so far with the Londoners winning their first two games of the season with a pair of victories at home. The Portuguese coach knows the importance of games against Manchester United and will look to repeat a 1-0 win last year at Old Trafford. It was Chelsea's first victory there since 2010.
Chelsea can be taken at odds of 3.25 to take all three points.
The draw is available at the same price over at Wiliam Hill and appears as an attractive option in the 1x2, while the halftime/fulltime draw brings that up to 5.50 over at William Hill.
The David Moyes era kicked off well for Manchester United as it opened its campaign in fine fashion with a 4-1 away win at Swansea, with Robin Van Persie and Danny Welbeck each scoring a pair. The home win is listed at 2.40, while the draw/home win in the halftime/fulltime launches that to 6.00.
William Hill is offering a headline special that sees a Van Persie goal combined with a United win at 4.00, while a Frank Lampard goal and a Chelsea win is at a hefty 9.00. My preference is the Van Persie goal at any point in the match on it's own at 2.25. Other goalscorer picks see Wayne Rooney is at 3.75 to score while Welbeck is at an even 3.00.
I like the both teams to score pick here at 1.61, combined with the over 2.5 at 1.73, given that this game is an early meeting in the season and positions are still being tinkered with and new players are still coming in during the transfer window. This double would land you $27.85 on a $10 wager and just another zero to the return if you are dropping a c-note.
