How to watch Chelsea vs Man United: The big Saturday tea-time kick-off sees Manchester United visit Chelsea in the Premier League. Here’s how to watch the big game and listen for free.
It’s fourth vs fifth in the Premier League as Chelsea host Man United at Stamford Bridge with an early season berth in the top-four on the line.
United have had an up and down season to date, but a heavy away defeat at Man City has been balanced out by wins over Liverpool, Arsenal and most recently Spurs at Old Trafford. They’re on the road again this weekend against another ‘Big 6’ team in the Premier League.
Having played all of the top clubs, Saturday night will be a pretty good time to judge the progress under Erik ten Hag’s leadership, following the various calamities of recent seasons.
Chelsea too are looking to find their identity under a new manager, with Graham Potter having succeeded Thomas Tuchel early on in the campaign. Potter’s expensively-assembled side had won five games in a row in all competitions before drawing a blank at Brentford in midweek. However, the Blues will fancy their chances at home against a United side that still is very much still in the development phases.
It’s a crucial game for both sides as we count down to the World Cup break, with points against the other contenders likely to be the deciding factor in the race for the top four this season.
