Chelsea v Manchester United odds and preview

 Once again the punters all over Europe are preparing for the clash of the titans, see the preview and betting odds on the Chelsea vs. Manchester United game below. Let's start with the betting odds offered on this major football game, for the benefit of the bettors in Europe we have compared the odds posted by two of the most popular online bookmakers - our top choice, Bet 365 (official) and it's rival Sportingbet (official); note, neither sportsbooks allow American bettors.

 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 bookie, however, has listed the Blues as the ultimate favourite 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 at Sportingbet Chelsea are also 6/5 favourtie, draw is 21/10, but Manchester United is just 21/10 underdog to win the clash tomorrow. Both sportsbooks are 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.
