Our Soccer Pick of the Day: Manchester United v. Chelsea

Published on September 18th, 2011
Today is another huge derby in the English Premiership with Manchester United playing hosts to Chelsea. Many are rooting for Manchester United and perhaps rightly so as they have taken the last three form their bitter rival Chelsea. But as we saw yesterday this is the weekend of surprises so being careful as you play this pair today as all is possible. Wallbeck is out with an injury, which puts Hernandez back into the spotlight to pair up with Rooney today, while on the other side rejuvenated Torres will be leading the Chelsea attack with the absence of injured Drogba whose return is expected in the next round.

We like Manchester United here and we believe that they will win in what will be a 2-1 type of encounter. Look for both teams to score and play Rooney to score one as well.

King's pick:

Manchester United wins - 2,10

Both teams to score - 1,80

Rooney scores - 2,25
