Chelsea vs Manchester United: Head-to-head
Manchester United won 2-0 at Old Trafford in their last meeting, which is their first win against Chelsea in 5 years in all competitions. The Blues won 7 and drew 5 from the 12 games during that period.
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 7 home games against United, 6 wins and 1 draw.
The Red Devils do want to forget their last Premier League match at the Stamford Bridge, which was a humiliating 4-0 defeat.
Chelsea vs Manchester United: Predictions
There is little doubt that this will be a close game. But will it be exciting as it look on paper with two managers who like to set out their team in a defensive mould.
The sides managed by Mourinho often come to away grounds of the strong sides with a heavily packed defense. They did the same at Anfield and even at Old Trafford against Spurs.
Chelsea do look brittle at the back and conceded in each of their last six matches in all competitions. This is one main reason for Conte to adopt a safety first approach.
Under the current situation, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the game ending in a boring goal-less draw.
