iBet: There should be goals when Manchester United visit Chelsea

Chelsea v Manchester United, Sunday, kick off 4pm

Back both teams to score at 8/13 with Ladbrokes
Back Fernando Alonso for a podium finish in India at 10/11 with Betfair

The Premier League arguably saves the best till last this weekend with the 4pm Sunday kick-off seeing the top two go head to head. The Londoners have been imperious in the league, especially at home where they have won all four games, scored 11 and conceded only three. And they impressed many observers in coming back from behind to win at White Hart Lane last weekend, with Mata particularly influential. You have to think they would have lost that game last season. However, Roberto Di Matteo’s men have shown that they are by no means the finished article with their fallibility in Europe, and that also applies to Manchester United, who keep having to dig deep to get results. When Braga scored first at Old Trafford in midweek, it represented the eighth time in a dozen games that Alex Ferguson’s men had conceded first, and there are clearly issues in defence. What is has meant is that there have been plenty of goals in Manchester United games though. Their 12 competitive fixtures in all competitions have averaged 3.66 goals and their last six over four. United always play to win and Chelsea will certainly not be defensive at home, so there should be goals.

Advices

The sweeping nature of the track used for the Indian Grand Prix should suit Red Bull, who have looked back to their best lately. Their No1 drive Sebastian Vettel is 8/11 to win. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso is fighting hard and available at a best price of 5.8/1 with Betfair, but the play may be to back him for a podium finish.
