Why you should back Chelsea
The Blues stalled out of the gate offensively this season, scoring a total of five goals over their first six matches while getting shut out in three consecutive contests. But they’ve converted at least twice in six of their last eight outings and netted four goals on four occasions over that stretch. Chelsea recorded three goals to edge Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, giving them 12 in their last four games.
Nicolas Jackson leads the Blues with six goals in 13 matches after registering 12 in 26 contests with Villarreal of La Liga last season. The 22-year-old forward, who notched his first assist of the campaign in the win against Brighton, was a force in Chelsea’s last road victory as he recorded a hat trick in a 4-1 triumph over Tottenham on Nov. 6. Winger Raheem Sterling has netted five goals, Cole Palmer has converted four times and fellow midfielder Enzo Fernandez had a brace versus Brighton for his first two goals in 31 career games with the Blues.

Why you should back Manchester United
The Red Devils cruised to a 4-1 victory in their last home meeting with Chelsea on May 25. Captain Bruno Fernandes converted in that contest and is tied with fellow midfielder Scott McTominay for the team lead in 2023-24 with three goals. The 29-year-old Fernandes, who also tops Manchester United with three assists, netted at least eight goals in each of his first four seasons with the Red Devils.
McTominay is one goal shy of matching his career high and already has eclipsed the amount he amassed over the previous two seasons, when he converted once in each. Marcus Rashford is the only other member of the Red Devils with more than one goal in 2023-24 as he has notched a pair, along with an assist. The 26-year-old, who matched his career high with 17 goals last campaign, scored in Man United’s 3-0 victory against Everton on Nov. 26 and also tallied in the home win versus Chelsea back in May.
