Premier League: Chelsea vs Manchester United

Manchester United will be looking at getting back to winning ways when they take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

The Reds go into the game on the back of a stalemate 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad in the Europa League, whilst the hosts ran out 1-0 winners over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League.

Head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is widely expected to make a host of changes to his starting eleven to face Chelsea, with David De Gea, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford all likely to be recalled.

Having fallen 10 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in recent weeks, it would be fair to say our chances of a winning a 21st league title appear slim but despite the gap it must be remembered that there are still thirteen games to go and anything can happen.

It wont be easy. Chelsea have turned a corner since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel last month and Pulisic, Kante, Timo Werner and co all look back to their best which is why United will have to be on top form they should they wish to leave the Bridge with all three points.

In many respects United couldn’t be facing Chelsea at a worse time.

Had we been facing Chelsea a few months back prior to Tuchel’s arrival then you would have banked on a Reds victory here, but this fixture looks ever more daunting now and it will take a similar type of away performance we seen against the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Real Sociedad earlier in the season if we are to get the win here.
