Chelsea v Manchester United Betting: Blues look good value to triumph over Mourinho's men

Without Zlatan Ibrahimovic and having just returned from a long trip to Russia, Al Hain-Cole can't see the visitors avoiding defeat at Stamford Bridge

The pick of the FA Cup quarter-final ties take place at Stamford Bridge on Monday, where Chelsea take on Manchester United.

Currently 10 points clear at the top of the Premier League table, the Blues are priced at 4/5 (1.80) with Paddy Power to remain on course for the double by coming out on top here.

Paddy Power have a choice of enhanced prices available on this match, going 10/1 (11.0) on Chelsea or 16/1 (17.0) on Manchester United for new customers.

Having lifted the trophy for the 12th time last season, the holders are available at 4/1 (5.00) to keep the defence of their title alive with a victory in west London.

Two of the last three encounters between these sides have resulted in draws, and you can get odds of 12/5 (3.40) on them triggering a replay by cancelling out other out yet again.

While both of last season’s meetings finished all square, Antonio Conte’s men ran out emphatic 4-0 winners in the first clash of this campaign in October.


Although the Red Devils have come on a lot since then, it will take a drastically improved performance to exact any type of revenge when they return to Stamford Bridge this time out.

Unfortunately for Jose Mourinho, his chances of coming back to haunt his former club have been severely damaged by the absence through suspension of key man Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

With Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Wayne Rooney all struggling to recover from injury, the understrength guests will surely struggle to get the better of a defence that has conceded just six times in their last 10 fixtures.


As if that wasn’t bad enough, the long trip home from last Thursday’s Europa League tie against Rostov in Russia means United will surely struggle to match the energy levels of a home team that has benefitted from a full week’s preparation time for this encounter.

All in all, those 4/5 (1.80) odds seem rather generous on Chelsea securing their 13th consecutive home win when they take on Mourinho’s weakened and wearied outfit.
