Di Matteo’s men have a great chance to open up a lead at the top this Sunday: The Odds

Chelsea are 2.4 with bet365 and Betfred to beat Manchester United at Stamford Bridge, and the stats suggest they have every chance of doing just that.
The last 10 renewals of this fixture have resulted in six home wins and four draws for the Blues.
Roberto Di Matteo’s side do have to bounce back from a disappointing 2-1 Champions League defeat in midweek to Shaktar Donetsk, but they are unbeaten in the league so far this season and currently sit top of the table.
They are points clear of United – their nearest pursuers – who are bidding for their fourth successive away win.
Sir Alex’s men have, however, been making it hard for themselves by conceding goals early in their matches and their defence could prove vulnerable to a potent Chelsea attack.
Fernando Torres has scored in six of his 14 appearances this season, which leaves him one short of his total for the entire 2011-12 season.
He has scored in three games against United and makes plenty of appeal at 8 with Paddy Power to score the opener.
In their last 30 meetings in all competitions, both teams have scored 18 times so the 1.57 on offer with bet365 and Betfred about it happening again looks well worth a wager.
Also given that Chelsea have scored an average of 3.7 goals a game this season, and United’s average stands at 3.67, over 2.5 goals is also worth considering if you like playing at odds on at the 1.68 on offer with bet365.
I fancy Chelsea to win this 2-1, and that scoreline is chalked up at 9.5 with bet365.
