How to watch Man United vs Chelsea: Live stream online and listen for free

How to watch Man United vs Chelsea: The midweek Premier League action continues as Chelsea visit Man United. Here’s how to watch and listen online for free

The battles between Chelsea and Manchester United have decided titles in previous years, but this one will have a very end of season feel about it. Man United need just a point from their final two games to be certain of a return to the Champions League next season. That shouldn’t be an issue.

Chelsea have suffered a truly awful campaign in the first season under owner Todd Boehly’s madcap leadership. Frank Lampard was hired a couple of months ago as the third manager of the season, with the hopes of putting out the fires at Stamford Bridge. Instead things have gotten worse. Chelsea are 12th in the Premier League and can’t finish above 11th even if they win their final two games.

The trip to Old Trafford tonight will give the Blues, and their squad of expensive recent signings, an opportunity to salvage just a little bit of pride, ahead of the arrival of the next boss Mauricio Pochettino.

‘Poch’ faces a huge job to get Chelsea back on track, but given the talent amassed within the squad, there’s at least the opportunity to sculpt a competitive team over the summer.

Here’s how to watch Man United vs Chelsea on the best TV, best smartphone or best laptop you have in the house.
