United certainly look a big price on current form so it’s little wonder that Chelsea, despite lingering just two points behind their rivals, are 16/5 to win and 12/5 to even grab a point.
The Sky Sports Super Sunday clash is preceded by another vital encounter, as Tottenham (6/4) host Liverpool (8/5) in an early duel for a Top Four finish. Man City are also in action at Fulham and after their own perfect start, they are chalked up at just 8/15 to march past 9/2 Fulham.
Sunderland (7/5) and Stoke (17/10) complete the Sunday line-up and following the Potters first taste of Europa League action, Tony Pulis’ side must recover quickly to maintain their strong league form.
24 hours earlier and Blackburn v Arsenal is the televised lunchtime contest that kicks-off the weekend.
Denied by a wonder strike at Dortmund in midweek, the Gunners are still not at their best but will tempt some into backing them at 4/5. Blackburn have endured their own strife this term and are 3/1 to win at Ewood Park, with 12/5 on offer for the draw.
Aston Villa (17/20) take on Newcastle (11/4), Everton (8/15) entertain Wigan (5/1) and Bolton (7/10) face Norwich (100/30) in the 3pm kick-offs.
Sportingbet’s own Wolves are also in action, priced 5/6 to beat new-look QPR (14/5) and Swansea (6/4) go in search of a first win – and goal – at home to West Brom (8/5).
All the games are mulled over by Reuters tipster Russ Wiseman, Marc Thomas and host Chris Graham on the Sportingbet Podcast, while there’s also horse racing on the agenda.
