There's Premiere League 2013 live stream and televised soccer for Monday, Aug. 26 with two of the top teams in the league squaring off. It will be Manchester United vs. Chelsea in an early season matchup which could preview two of the top teams for the coming season. The latest matchup will be a televised and live streaming Premier League game shown via the NBC networks.
According to an Aug. 26 BBC Sport report, there's plenty of inspiration for Man. U to win today's game, including the fact they've started out 2-0 on the Premier League points table. Liverpool and Tottenham share the lead with Chelsea early, as each team has 6 points, two victoris, and zero losses. David Moyes, who has taken charge of this United team since the legendary Sir Alex Ferguson left, has said to the media:
"There is lots I've been looking forward to: taking the team on tour, leading them at Wembley.
But to do it [lead the team out] at Old Trafford for the first game against Chelsea is a thrill, it really is."
Today's game includes another recently big story in Premier League, as Chelsea attempted to sign star striker Wayne Rooney from Manchester United, who is apparently unhappy with playing for the team. Rooney had a falling out with Ferguson last season, and Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has criticized David Moyes for Rooney wanting to leave. With the recent controversy and drama, it could make for an extra intriguing matchup.
The latest odds for the match have Manchester United as 11 to 8 favorites to win, according to IB Times, with Chelsea priced at 9 to 4. A draw is priced at 12 to 5 should the two teams finished in a deadlock tie.
