Starting with the Chelsea v Manchester
United odds at
Bet 365, where we found the
best value of the two, if the Red Devils are your favourite. The

to win the Sunday's game, Chelsea are currently holding odds
6/5, while Manchester United will visit as underdog, sitting on
long 13/5 odds. Draw will pay out to punters on 21/10. Meanwhile

licensed, so in this case, our recommendation is to go with Bet
365 if you believe that Man Utd will win the game.
It will be interesting to see the form
of the two Manchester United stars - Cristiano Ronaldo and the
new addition to the Red Devils, the Bulgarian striker Dimitar
Berbatov. Both players managed to log just one game each this
season, but according to the latest reports, Ronaldo should be
good to go full time, after his ankle surgery, and Dimitar
Berbatov has recovered from a knee injury. "Cristiano is
nibbling in my ear all the time. He is bursting to play. The boy
was on fire on Wednesday. He was revved up to do really well.
When you think he has had an operation, has been in rehab for
two months and had not played since May 21. It was a big ask for
him. But you have to say his performance level was outstanding.
He has trained very well and is a natural athlete, so I have no
qualms on that score. I just have to decide whether it is the
right time," confident Ferguson was quoted. Gary Neville is
also ready to go, while young Jonny Evans did impress the Scot
and may start in place of Nemanja Vidic, who was suspended,
following a red card against Liverpool.
And talking about red card, Chelsea
defender John Terry is available for the match against
Manchester United, after he successfully appealed a red card and
avoided suspension. Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari,
however, said that top striker Didier Drogba is still nursing
injury and will be unable to play the full 90 minutes on Sunday.
