How to watch Man United vs Chelsea It’s a big game in the race for the top-four in the Premier League, but is it on TV? Here’s how to watch Man United vs Chelsea live on TV and online

Life’s a struggle for Man United just now. The season is frizzling out with not much to play for, their biggest rivals are about to face off for the Premier League title and look destined to meet in the Champions League final too.

Sure, there’s a new manager in place, but the club is probably years from competing at the top of the English and European games.

A loss against Arsenal at the weekend desperately damaged the hopes for a top four spot, but United can revive them tonight with a win at Chelsea; a club also experiencing some turmoil.

The Blues are looking to consolidate 3rd spot having fallen out of the title race and Champions League. Thomas Tuchel’s men do have the FA Cup to look forward to in a couple of weeks, though.
