Manchester United are 6/4 to beat Chelsea on Monday night, while the visitors can be backed at 2/1 to claim a valuable three points at Old Trafford.
It remains to be seen whether Wayne Rooney will play any part in the match, with Chelsea looking to put in a third bid for the striker next week although they can call upon the services of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Romelu Lukaku for this encounter.
There are over 100 pre-match markets available for this match and Robin van Persie is a 4/1 chance to score first on the First Goalscorer market, while Rooney is a 6/1 chance and the visitors’ Frank Lampard can be backed at 8/1 to break the deadlock.
