SPURS are doing their best to put a bit of pressure on Chelsea and it will be interesting to see how the leaders handle a trip to Old Trafford.
They face a tough test on paper but Man United’s focus is on the Europa League which gives Jose Mourinho the best chance of qualifying for the Champions League.
He could rest players ahead of the second leg with Anderlecht after a 1-1 draw and if he does the Blues could take advantage.
The gap over Spurs is down to four points and Antonio Conte would prefer it to be seven so I expect them to go for a win.
However, United are unbeaten in 21 – 11 of them draws – so another stalemate is possible. The last eight league meetings between the sides have seen Chelsea win four with four draws.
Chelsea have beaten United twice at home this season but four of the last five at Old Trafford have ended all square. I like the Blues at 2-1 with McBookie but Chelsea draw no bet is less risky at 21-20 with the Scots firm.
Eden Hazard has been in sublime form and is worth a look at 7-1 with bet365 to score first.
United’s best bet of a goal as usual comes from Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He is often the man for big games and is 7-4 at 888sport to score at anytime.
It has the feel of an unders game and under 2.5 goals pays 4-5 at Marathonbet
