With the Portuguese desperate to avoid another humiliating defeat against his former club, Al Hain-Cole is expecting an characteristically tense game

Having fallen to two defeats against Chelsea already this season, Manchester United will be out for revenge when the side come face-to-face yet again in Sunday's Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

Beaten 4-0 in October's reverse fixture and 1-0 in March's FA Cup tie, Jose Mourinho's men are available at 8/5 (3.60) with dabblebet to finally come out on top at the third attempt.

The Blues have now gone 12 games without defeat against this opposition, and are priced at 15/8 (2.88) to complete a third win of the season in this one.

Each of the last three encounters between the teams on this ground have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 11/5 (3.20) on them cancelling each other out once again on this occasion.

Having been visibly hurt by the 4-0 thrashing on his return to a stadium where he previously worshipped as a hero, Mourinho took measures to ensure a similar humiliation was avoided in the FA Cup clash.

Although undermined by Ander Herrera's first-half dismissal, the Red Devils' game plan was clearly one based on damage limitation and resulted in them posting a season-low 28 per cent possession.

While the return from suspension of the talismanic Zlatan Ibrahimovic should ensure an extra dimension in attack, Mourinho is still likely to stick to similarly conservative tactics in order to avoid another damaging defeat against Antonio Conte's men.

Having only conceded three goals in their last six league games on home soil, the hosts are more than capable of putting up strong opposition against the leaders, although their own return of just five scored at the other end of the pitch suggests they will also struggle to break down the division's best away defence.

All things considered, odds of 5/6 (1.83) are not to be missed on no more than one team finding the net for the fifth time in six encounters between United and Chelsea.
