Venue: Stamford Bridge

Chelsea and Manchester United will be seeking to get the bragging rights as both teams fight for supremacy at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

Both teams have had its highs and lows this season. Chelsea are entering this fixture at the back of a 3-0 loss to Roma in the Champions League. As for United, they were heavily criticised for their draw to Liverpool and defeat to Huddersfield.

Chelsea in 4th position are four points behind Manchester United who are second on the table.

In the last six games in all competitions, Chelsea have won three, drawn one and lost two, while in the Premier League, three wins as well, two losses and a defeat.

United have won their last three games in all competitions, and in the Premier League, it’s been four wins, one draw and one defeat to Manchester United this season.

Chelsea lost the last meeting between the two sides in the Premier League, a 2-0 loss to Jose Mourinho’s men, and before that, it was in 2012 that United last won Chelsea prior to that game in April.

Games between Chelsea and United in the Premier have been very tough with the Blues winning two of the last six and three ended in a draw, while United have won just once.

Chelsea have had the edge over United in recent meetings and have lost just one of their last 15 Premier League home games against Manchester United (W9, D5).

United’s 2-0 league victory in April ended a run of 12 games without a win against the Blues in all competitions.

In the EPL, Chelsea have also been United’s toughest opponents as the Reds have lost more Premier League games (17) and conceded more goals (66) against Chelsea than any other side.

Conte’s men will be looking for their first back-to-back home league wins of the season.

And the Blues have kept five clean sheets in 18 fixtures in all competitions.
