Man Utd v Chelsea betting tips (Community Shield August 8): The annual premier league season curtain raiser kicks off on Sunday afternoon and I havn't really been following Chelsea's pre season progress but I've been watching UTD closely and they're shaping up nicely, the latest match a mauling of an Irish league 11 just down the road....

Not too many injury worries in offensive areas and the team is gelling together nicely. The Community Shield season opener is usually a very tame affair played at a slow pace and I wouldn't be surprised to see more of the same this weekend, especially if the weather is hot come Sunday afternoon. A draw or a narrow victory for either side looks a likely outcome and I'd expect 1 of the big 3 names, Rooney, Drogba or Lampard to be key to the action. UTD to me look in decent enough shape to warrant at least being on a par with chelsea in this 1 but the sportsbooks lean on the side of Chelsea albeit UTD unsurprisingly coming in, leaving slight value with the Reds IMO.

Paddypower offer a money back special on this 1 if Hernandez scores the last goal.
