Manchester United are currently preparing to host Frank Lampard’s Chelsea at Old Trafford in this afternoon’s late kick-off in the Premier League in what has all the makings to be England’s game of the weekend.
The eagerly anticipated match-up sees both sides enduring patchy runs of form after only winning two of their domestic games, although United have played one less (4) than Chelsea (5).
Both sides will be hopeful they can kick start their domestic campaigns at the expense of their opponent with a win for either team rocketing them up the table.
Chelsea currently sit ninth in the table on eight-points and United down in 15th on six-points.
United head into this afternoon’s match off the back of a hugely impressive 2-1 Champions League group win over Ligue 1 champions Paris-Saint Germain.
Elsewhere, Chelsea drew their mid-week Champions League opener 0-0 to last season’s Europa League winners, Sevilla.
With kick-off just over an hour away, pockets of United fans have taken to their social media to give their verdict on who they think will come out on top; Manchester or London, Solskjaer or Lampard, Red or Blue.
