If you love to bet on derby matches, the Premier League offers such a meeting in the first round of the new campaign. Against each other will play the teams of Manchester United and Tottenham. The venue for this derby match will be Old Trafford.

The Red Devils did their best during the summer break to be competitive to Chelsea and Manchester City in the title race in the second season of Louis van Gaal in the team. They spent a lot of money to add new players to the squad. However, it should be noted that several key players like Robin van Persie left the club, which will definitely lead to some imbalances in the team.
This year as always in United everything will revolve around Wayne Rooney, which many believe is already a flaw that prevents the team to be a real contender for the title in the Premier League.

Tottenham will start another season with a main goal to be in the battle for the top four, which will give them a place in the Champions League next season. Unfortunately for their supporters this is highly unlikely to happen.

However, this is the second season of Mauricio Pochettino in the team and he is a specialist with great qualities who can take the most from his players. If Pochetino is able to make Harry Kane repeat the last season, the Spurs chances of making something in this campaign are significantly increased. In the team list we could see enough class players who over the last years failed to fully prove themselves as top players, but this is nothing more than another opportunity for Pochetino. Such players are Aaron Lennon, Eric Lamela, Moussa Dembele and others. If they and Harry Kane are in good shape, the Spurs can beat any team, including Manchester United in the first round of the championship.

However, the bookmakers put the home team as the favorite in the match, giving them a coefficient of 1,67 (Bet365 and Sportingbet) and 1,7 (William Hill, Tipico and Pinnacle). The coefficients for a draw are around 4, while the chances of Tottenham range around five and a bit more. The highest coefficient for a Tottenham win is proposed by Pinnacle – 5,44.

Two seasons ago, Tottenham had similar odds for a win, but they managed to surprise United and beat them with 1:2. Furthermore, during the last campaign, the Red Devils lost three times at Old Trafford, which suggests that any surprise is possible and a bet for Tottenham with a small amount of money can be defined as a very reasonable one. Of course, the chances for a success for United in the game are good, but a coefficient of 5.44 for a victory for Tottenham is just too high not to be taken.

On 02 Aug 2015 Chelsea and Arsenal meet each other in the match at Wembley Stadium in London. This game will decide the fate of the Community Shield trophy for 2015. These two rivals are very well known. Being two of the major London teams.

This big project took their ability to have cash for a period of time. But now things are different. They repaid almost all of the obligations and are ready to embark on battle for first place in the Premier League. They made some very valuable and important transfers on the market last summer and previous transfer periods. Arsene Wenger builds a very strong and battleworthy team that can beat any club in England. The players he takes in Arsenal bring champions spirit and desire for win.

While in past years always Arsenal had great team. This Arsenal team could not achieve the desired winning of Premier League in England last few years. They are always moving according to the front places in the standings without a real chance to win at the end of the season. According to Bet-at-home Bet365 Bwin William Hill Betfair Arsenal have less chance of winning 2.90.

Chelsea has very different policy regarding transfers. Although a strong academy and a strong young team, is very difficult some youth to succeed and stand alongside with the big names who defend the name of the team Chelsea. For Jose Mourinho is not a problem to pay a large amount of cash to get a class that allows him in recent years his team to fight on many fronts. Betting Odds for victory for Chelsea at bet365 are at odds around 2.4.

Important is that the Community Shield 2015 does not carry gravity as years ago. Definitely the game will be interesting. Wembley Stadium will be full and burning with passion. Who is going to be winner after 90 min? The question should be clear at 02 August.

After a very long time Arsenal had not to pay installments for the stadium, things are different now. They made some very important transfers. Now they have built a team that can fight for first place in England. They have attracted world class players. The midline of this team is a very strong weapon.

These are Mesut Özil, Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere, the young Chamberlain and many others. The attack is also very strong. Danny Welbeck, Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott. Many speed and quality in this team. The presence of Petr Cech has many safety and comfort. In defensive part of the game this team lags behind the offensive. Very important for the team of Arsenal is how they will start the season. They have already shown their qualities to fight till the end.

At West Ham not many differences from the last season. The new manager Slaven Bilic has a task to qualify at least as good as last campaign. If they were not lost their last three games last season against Newcastle, Everton and Aston Villa hammers would be ranked in the top half of the standings.
