Welcome to your ATL Extra weekend email...

The Easter Bank Holiday weekend features five Premier League games live on TV. Let’s see what the latest stats & form say about the big Sky Sports Super Sunday game...

THE BIG GAME – Man Utd v Chelsea

Premier League, Sun 4pm – Sky Sports

Match odds:

Man Utd 8/5 (2.60)  Draw 11/5 (3.20)     Chelsea 19/11 (2.90)

Chelsea have had the measure of United so far this season...

Man Utd have only lost one of their last 16 games in all comps – and that was a 1-0 FA Cup defeat at Chelsea.

In the league, United are unbeaten in 21 games – but that last defeat was a 4-0 beating at Chelsea.

And the long-term head-to-head history points to the Premier League leaders, too. Chelsea are unbeaten in 12 games against Man Utd in all comps, going back to October 2012.

Outside of the Match Result markets, the stats on our Across the Leagues members-only website also tell us that...

  • Both Teams to Score bets have paid out in 9 Chelsea games in a row
  • Under 2.5 Goals bets have paid out in 75% of Man Utd home games, including their last 6 at Old Trafford
  • Man Utd have won the Most Corners in 81% of home games, with -1 Corner Handicap bets paying out in 4 of their last 5
  • Over 4.5 Cards bets have paid out in 4 of Man Utd’s last 5 home games, averaging 5.4 Total Cards per game in that period

Many bookies, including Bet365 and William Hill, are offering Goals, Corners, Cards & Bookings markets for Man Utd v Chelsea.

TOP 10 TABLES – Winning streaks...

MATCH PREDICTOR – Enter your predictions...

Last season’s overall winner CHRISSIE13 was the top scoring player in our Premier League Mini League last weekend, with 3 Correct Scores and a very consistent 8 out of 10 correct Match Results. No surprise then, that CHRISSIE13 is top of the overall table, too.

Let’s see who comes out top this weekend...

  • We’re offering a £100 prize to our Mini League winner at the end of the season
