Chelsea vs Manchester United Match Preview
Chelsea did well to salvage a point against Leicester in their last clash on the road after both teams shared four goals between them. The hosts have now been held to a draw in their past two games on the trot, and have stumbled just once past six.
It is also worth mentioning that the home team are currently sitting fourth on the ladder, eight points adrift of third-placed Leicester.
On the other hand, Manchester United will be making the trip to Stamford Bridge this week on the back of a, a goalless draw against Wolves at home. Despite recording sixteen attempts at goal in that clash, the visitors were far from clinical in their efforts and deservedly missed out on the win at the last blast of the whistle.
It is also worth mentioning that the Red Devils have come out on top in just one of their last five games in the Premier League. With just thirty-five points in the bag, Manchester United have now slumped to eighth in the table.
Chelsea vs Manchester United Prediction
Chelsea have got off to a solid start at home since the start of the new year. The hosts managed to hold Arsenal to a 2-2 draw in their last clash here, prior to which they took down Burnley with a whopping 3-0 scorecard.
It is also worth mentioning that Frank Lampard’s men have stumbled just thrice in their past nine PL games here. In sharp contrast, Manchester United are on two-match losing streak away from home.
Miserably six of the eight defeats that they have admitted so far have come also from their trips on the road.
Furthermore, the visitors have just three wins to boast of from their outings, only one of which was against a side that is currently dwelling in the top five. Given their poor form on the road, and the fact that they will be without talisman Marcus Rashford, a defeat is certainly looming large for Manchester United in this one.
Nevertheless, count on the Red Devils to go down swinging. The visitors have found the back of the net twelve times on the road this term. Moreover, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer’s men have had their names on the scoresheet in each of their last three visits to the Bridge.
Hence, expect both teams to have their scoring boots on come Monday.
