Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has backed Sunday’s opponents Chelsea to once again be one of his team’s closest challengers for the Premier League title.
United are 6/1 with bookmaker to win 1-0 at Old Trafford and customers can get a free In-Play bet for the game this weekend.
Andre Villas-Boas’ side have failed to impress in the league so far this season, although they have taken ten points from their first four matches, and are 11/1 to beat the league leaders 1-0 on Sunday.
Ferguson said: “They will be there at the end of the season, there is no doubt about that. At the moment, of course, the two Manchester teams are enjoying the publicity but in the background lurks Chelsea. They don’t need the publicity. They will be enjoying being out of the profile at the moment.”
