Manchester United vs Chelsea Preview

Manchester United vs Chelsea

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Old Trafford

Date: 25th February 2018

Kick-off time – 14:05 GMT

This match is always one of the biggest games of any weekend it falls on and this time it is no different.

Manchester United need a win to boost their chances of finishing second in the league and Antonio Conte’s men will not just hand it over to them.

Paul Pogba is expected to start here again after missing out of the starting lineup in their last four matches.

Scott McTominay will also be hoping Mourinho offers him another start after receiving praise for his performance against Sevilla.

Only two of their last 11 games have ended in over 2.5 goals and their last four meetings have ended in home wins although three of those have been at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea’s draw against Barcelona in midweek showed once again that Antonio Conte is one of the best tacticians in the game as they stifled Lionel Messi and Co. at Stamford Bridge.

They have however, lost two of their last three Premier League games and they are underdogs in this clash according to bookmakers.

Of the top five sides, these two are the least scoring sides and with that in mind this game looks like a low scoring affair.
