Mauricio Pochettino's Chelsea are developing into the Premier League's great entertainers and they should be backed to score at least twice on Wednesday's trip to Manchester United.
The Blues' last four league results were a chaotic 4-1 win at Tottenham, a 4-4 draw at home to champions Manchester City, a 4-1 loss at Newcastle, and Saturday's 3-2 victory over Brighton at Stamford Bridge.
Pochettino's men are undoubtedly on the up after a slow start to the 2023/24 campaign and they welcome back Reece James from suspension on Wednesday.
They still look far more convincing in attack than in defence so backing over 1.5 Chelsea goals is a solid Bet Builder selection.
Since the start of October they have won 2-0 at Fulham and 4-1 at Burnley, also drawing 2-2 at home to title contenders Arsenal, while opponents United should have lost by a wider margin than 1-0 at Newcastle on Saturday.
The Magpies had 22 shots at goal, having won 3-0 at Old Trafford in the EFL Cup last month. Brighton, Galatasaray and Manchester City also scored three goals in their away wins over United this season and in-form Chelsea can increase the pressure on manager Erik ten Hag.
Chelsea striker Nicolas Jackson has certainly made an impression in the early months of his career in England, racking up six goals and seven yellow cards in just 11 Premier League starts and two substitute appearances.
The Senegal international will be keen to unsettle Manchester United centre-back Harry Maguire and Jackson is well worth backing to pick up another booking.
He has struggled to stay out of trouble in high-profile fixtures this season, being shown a card on his Premier League debut against Liverpool and in Chelsea's 3-1 defeat at London rivals West Ham.
Jackson was also booked in November's feisty fixtures against Tottenham and Manchester City and he looks a leading candidate to receive a card on Wednesday.
Manchester-born midfielder Cole Palmer has made an impressive start to his Chelsea career and he will be hoping to overcome a knock to line up at Old Trafford.
However, the experienced Raheem Sterling is also enjoying life under Pochettino and he looks a tempting selection to score or assist a goal against United.
The England winger scored only six league goals last season but has already found the net five times in 13 top-flight starts this term.
Sterling has notched in four of his last eight outings, including the EFL Cup win over Blackburn, and in his last three league appearances he has set up a goal at Tottenham and scored against Newcastle and his former club Manchester City.
Erik ten Hag is likely to be missing the injured Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia, Casemiro, Christian Eriksen, Jonny Evans and Amad Diallo. Winger Jadon Sancho is still out of favour and former Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount (calf) has only just returned to training.
Reece James and Marc Cucurella return from suspension but Conor Gallagher, sent off against Brighton last weekend, is banned. Christopher Nkunku and Romeo Lavia are closing in on returns from injury but are unlikely to be risked at Old Trafford.
Cole Palmer and Malo Gusto are doubts and Ben Chilwell, Trevoh Chalobah, Wesley Fofana and Carney Chukwuemeka remain sidelined.
Manchester United have lost five of their last nine home games in all competitions. Seven of Chelsea's last 10 Premier League away matches have featured over 3.5 goals.
