Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview

Chelsea vs Manchester United

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Stamford Bridge

Date: 5th November 2017

Kick-off time – 16:30 GMT

After an abject performance in Rome midweek, Chelsea face another top team as they continue to be tested to see if they are one of the top sides in Europe this season.

They were well beaten 3-0 by AS Roma in their last game after they managed to get a late equalizer in the first leg to finish the game 3-3.

Both their defence and attack was ineffective in that loss and they will need to do better if they want to get a result in this game.

They are already nine points behind Manchester City in the league table and it will be hard for them to retain that crown.

The Blues were solid at home last season and that helped them clinch the league title but they have already lost twice in five games at Stamford Bridge this season winning just two of those.

However, they will have less defensive work to do here as Jose Mourinho usually takes a defensive approach when he plays these big games.

The Blues have lost as many home games (2) as they did throughout last season.

After scoring 22 goals in their first seven games, Manchester United have netted just 7 goals in their last 6 games which shows that Jose Mourinho would rather have a goalless draw than lose any game these days.

They lost their last away league game at newly promoted Huddersfield and that was the third time they dropped points away from home this season.

With United on the defensive and Chelsea attackers finding it hard to score at the moment, this game looks likely to be a low scoring affair.

Manchester United have won just one of their last 15 away games against Chelsea in the league
