Man United vs Chelsea match preview

Both teams have been reasonably impressive since the break, but on form United are the favourites. They’re unbeaten since the Premier League restart.

Chelsea’s only loss since the break was a recent 3-0 defeat away at Sheffield United. Ole’s Reds will no doubt take some encouragement from Chelsea’s defeat there.

Manchester United may be without their usual left back, Luke Shaw, or his understudy, Brandon Williams. Both men suffered injuries on Monday’s game against Southampton and were unavailable on Thursday night’s match against Crystal Palace. Timothy Fosu-Mensah stood in, having not played for Manchester United since 2017.

Both sides have seen their strike forces in free-scoring form. United’s young trio of Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial and Mason Greenwood have all been racking up goals, while Chelsea front-man Olivier Giroud has simultaneously hit consistent form for the blues.

It’s a finely balanced fixture, with United likely to enter the game as slight favourites. Their slightly stilted performance on Thursday, against Crystal Palace, will be a cause of concern for United fans though. You can catch all the action live on BBC One, or BBC iPlayer, this Sunday.
