Man Utd – Chelsea 05.05.2013
I expect the Red Devils to win this match.
They have already secured the title in the Premier League, but sir Alex does not allow any relaxation. I was expecting him to rest some of his key players against Arsenal last weekend, but he start with Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney in the squad. And managed to frustrate Wenger by taking him two important points. Sir Alex announced a strong line-up once again for this match and that’s the first reason for my pick. He will be particularly motivated to beat Chelsea. Manchester United have lost more games (13) and conceded more goals (55) against Chelsea than they have against any other team since the Premier League was introduced. In addition, the Blues have eliminated United in FA Cup one month ago.

Chelsea bad away form is the second reason for my pick. Chelsea have only one win on the last five away matches in the Premier League, suffering three defeats.It is important to be mentioned that Chelsea players will be tired after played UEFA Europe League match against Basel on Thursday.At the end I will mention that Manchester United have three victories and one draw on the last four mutual games at Old Trafford. I expect the hosts to win.
