Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back either side as a huge enhanced price when they face off at Stamford Bridge on Sunday

Betting Special

Let's forget the first Premier League meeting this season between these sides didn't happen, shall we? It was drab, it was boring and it was goalless.

There was very little attacking intent from either side and both teams seemed happy to settle for a solitary point before Martin Atkinson had even got the game underway. Jose Mourinho didn't even name a recognised striker in his first 11.

Things have changed since August though and the race for the Premier League title is in full swing, with Chelsea sitting just two points behind leaders Arsenal. The London club are odds on at 5/6 (1.83) with Paddy Power to win their fifth consecutive Premier League game on Sunday, having dropped just two points in their 10 league games at home this season.

5/6 (1.83) may seem too short for some punters to back but new Paddy Power customers can back the Blues at a massive 4/1 (5.0) to beat Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.

United, on the other hand, have fared better on their travels in the Premier League than they have at Old Trafford - who'd have thought that would have been the case this season?

The Red Devils are deservedly underdogs to shock Chelsea and collect their first victory on the road against a team in the current top six this season. Odds of 4/1 (5.0) might not be attractive to those seeking to back David Moyes' men but Paddy Power are offering new customers the chance to back the Reds at 8/1 (9.0) in this game.

New Paddy Power customers can select either one of these offers when they sign up for an account. Anyone without an account can get one here.

That's not all, though. Paddy Power have covered all the match outcomes with existing customers being able to take advantage of their Money Back Special which will see the Irish bookmaker refund losing first and last goalscorer, correct score and scorecast bets on the match if it ends all square at Stamford Bridge.

Wayne Rooney's warm weather recovery period hasn't quite had the desired effect and the Manchester United man is best avoided at 7/1 (8.0) to score first on Sunday afternoon. And with Robin van Persie still side-lined through injury, it could be Danny Welbeck that is named as the second striker and the England international is 9/1 (10.0) to break the deadlock.

For the hosts, Fernando Torres leads the way at 5/1 (6.0), closely followed by Samuel Eto'o at 11/2 (6.50). The two frontmen have been used in rotation by Jose Mourinho so better value may be sought in more regular starters such as the midfield three of Oscar (8/1), Eden Hazard (7/1) or Willian (9/1) who seem to have become the preferred attacking options for the Blues boss.
