Chelsea vs. Manchester United Match Analysis and Prediction

One of the most highly anticipated clashes in the Premier League occurs as top-four chasing Chelsea welcome second-placed Manchester United. The match schedules for Sunday at Stamford Bridge, with a kickoff at 7:30 pm.

Chelsea is currently fifth-placed, two points behind fourth-placed West Ham, who lost to Manchester City on Saturday. Manchester United is second-placed, ten points behind league leaders Manchester City.

Thomas Tuchel’s form as Chelsea manager has been excellent so far, with the Blues winning six matches and drawing in two matches in eight starts across all competitions. A top-four finish looked like a hard fetch for Frank Lampard after a series of unimpressive performances saw his time come to an end.

Chelsea has picked up 14 points from a possible 18 available in the fifth position on the table. A win this weekend will close the gap to only three points against the Red Devils. Chelsea was held to a 1-1 draw against Southampton last weekend.

Man United enter into the clash on the back of a goalless draw against Real Sociedad in the Europa League last Thursday. The side managed to advance to the round of 16 courtesy of a 4-0 aggregate success.

The Red Devils received a glamor tie against AC Milan in the next round but cannot afford to switch focus from the league. A six-point gap separates them from their opponents.
