Chelsea v Manchester UTD Tips (Champions League Apr 6):
Tip 1: Chelsea win @ 6/5 Betfair Chelsea are extremely strong at home against the big teams and I think they are decent value at odds against to take a narrow lead over Manchester UTD in the first leg. Ferdinand will be back for Manchester UTD and both teams are expected to be near full strength. Torres has had the measure of Vidic against Manchester UTD in the past and tonight would be a great night for him to get going for Chelsea. Manchester UTD could start defensively with 5 across the midfield which could back fire.
Tip 2: Nemanja Vidic to be booked for Manchester UTD @ 21/10 (Unibet) | Sent off @ 20/1 (PP) As mentioned, Torres has caused Vidic a lot of problems in the past which has resulted in the defender being sent off at 1 stage against Liverpool. More of the same tonight could see Vidic, also sent off in the recent Chelsea v Manchester UTD clash get himself into trouble. He struggles against players with pace in behind. He should have been sent off on saturday when the same happened with Carlton Cole but escaped with a yellow.
Tip 3: Frank Lampard Uefa.com Man of the match @ 7/1 (Stanjames) A good tip given the bias towards fans favs in polls of this sort. Lampard excels in the big games for Chelsea and could be the key man v Manchester UTD tonight. On penalties too, in case Chelsea get another tonight.
