Next Sunday, 26th of October 2014, the inconsistent Manchester United will entertain the new super Chelsea at Old Trafford for round nine of the English Premier League, on a match that, in case of win, might help to motivate the host team that still lost in their path to success this season.

Who will win next Sunday's managerial battle?

Manchester United’s inconsistency continues to be blatantly obvious. The team is currently on a six match row without a single win away from home and continues to present a disconcerting shakiness on their defensive department. Last Monday, United might consider themselves lucky for grabbing a draw during their visit to The Hawthorns. A late goal from the newcomer Daley Blind offered the Red Devils one precious point, just when the ghost of yet another defeat was already taunting the team’s supporters.

The new Manchester United from Louis Van Gaal looks already fairly tuned up on their attacking movements but, at the same time, their defensive approach is a total wreck. The defence line allows excessive space for the opponents to pass the ball around quite easily, reason why conceding goals is almost inevitable.

When playing away from Old Trafford, United’s tactical approach also does not seem quite accurate, as the players look somewhat lost on the pitch for some periods of the match.

In order to snatch a positive result against Chelsea, the Red Devils will need to put up something very special and cannot continue to give away those “freebies” back in the defence; otherwise, they will easily be overcomed by the Blues.

For next Sunday’s clash, Van Gaal will probably still not be able to rely on the contribution of Lingard, Valencia, McNair and Evans, all of them sidelined due to injury.

As for Chelsea, José Mourinho’s boys have been looking unstoppable so far this season and not even their draws against Schalke 04 and Manchester City are enough to taint their impressive campaign.

The Blues remain undefeated after eight league matches and they will certainly fight for an extension on that record when they visit Old Trafford next Sunday.

Last Tuesday, Chelsea completely hammered the Slovenian side of Maribor at Stamford Bridge for the UEFA Champions League, on a match that marked the return of Didier Drogba to goals.

For the upcoming match, José Mourinho is not yet certain if he will be able to rely on the contribution of the Brazilian born Spanish sharpshooter, Diego Costa, and on Ramires, who are still recovering from their respective injuries.

Although Manchester United will be playing at home, Chelsea enjoy from a slight favouritism to the match, especially if one has in mind the quality they have already displayed so far this season.

  1. It looks like a draw to me. I would apply Tarazu between Blues and Draw @ BETFAIR

    • JACKPOT prediction. Reds drew in the last minutes what a match. Another prediction came true.

      • Bhai, I bet on cricket Zimbabwe or draw ........ vs Bangladesh ( tarazu bet) ^ bhai what should we do if the team going to loss ?? Better cashout or wait for end of the match ???

        • If you see match is one sided then take loss or small profit and exit the trade. Don't wait till the end as it gets worse towards the end. In some case you can end up with massive profit if it's last ball finish. In this example of BD v Zim it was one sided as soon as Zim folded in 2nd innings. You should have traded out as soon as BD started their 4th innings. Match was already decided after 3rd innings and some drama was expected. Don't take it personally. E.g. I supported India v England test matches hoping that someone can save India in the last innings but it never happened. Unexpected results are rare, in most cases you can predict Test match after the end of 3rd innings, that's point when you take final decision and move on.

          This test was my bad prediction. I expected more from Zim but as usual these 3rd class teams always fail. BD bowling improved thanks to Shakib Al Hasan's superb comeback. He is hell lot of player in any team and has the ability to turn the match in his favour.

          Back BD now for the rest of series. Ignore draw in the beginning, Tarazu might not work with draw as none of the team has good batsmen to last more than a day so result is always expected. You can do Tarazu between two teams.

  2. Bhai pls explain about tarazu much have to put for each sides......plssssss
