Here are five picks Guy Giles thinks you should consider for Manchester United v Chelsea, which kicks off at 16:30 on Sunday.
Match to be a draw
Both Premier League matches between these two teams ended in draws last season, including a 1-1 at Old Trafford at the end of April.
Neither club have enjoyed a transformative transfer window, and would probably both be happy with a point.
1st goal: Manchester United
United’s 10 opening goals at Old Trafford last season came after an average of 17 minutes – the fastest in the league.
They have also taken the lead in their last four opening-day fixtures.
Plenty of @dreamteamfc managers will be debating over who Frank Lampard starts up front at Old Trafford.— betway (@betway) August 9, 2019

Home team first goal: 1st half
United scored 35 first-half goals last season, with only Manchester City and Liverpool netting more.
Chelsea conceded 11 first-half goals away from home in 2018/19, more than any top-six side other than Arsenal.
Paul Pogba to score
Pogba was United’s top scorer last season with 16 goals in all competitions.
The 26-year-old tends to start the season strongly, scoring in United’s last two opening-day fixtures, including a penalty after just three minutes against Leicester last year.
Over 1.5 Manchester United cards
United accrued 73 yellow cards last season, the third-most in the division behind Watford and Burnley.
They have passed this mark in all of their last 11 matches against Chelsea, so this looks a safe bet to bolt on to your #BetYourWay.
