Chelsea will take on Manchester United in the Premier League at 5:30pm (West African Time) today at Stamford Bridge.
This first leg fixture ended in a goalless draw at Old Trafford last year and a lot has changed since then.
Chelsea have moved from 2nd to 10th and back to 5th, sacking Frank Lampard in the process and employing Thomas Tuchel is now unbeaten as a Chelsea Manager.
Manchester United stayed at the top of the league for a while before being displaced to second by a consistent and ravishing Manchester City side.
Chelsea now sits at 43 points, 6 points behind 2nd placed Manchester United.
Ole has comfirmed prior to this game that Juan Mata is ruled out for the clash while Scott McTominay and Edison Cavani are unlikely to be fit also.
However Manchester United have a boost in Van De Beek who has been confirmed to resume full training ahead of this match after suffering a knock earlier.
Chelsea on the other hand have no new Injury concerns as comfirmed by Thomas Tuchel but unfortunately they will be once again without key central defender Thiago Silva who is still recovering from his thigh Injury.
What’s at stake?
Both teams are basically fighting for top four as Manchester City are already running away with the Premier League title with 13 points clear off Manchester United in 2nd.
However there could be statistics at stake if neither of the teams loose today.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea is still unbeaten in all competitions while maintaining an almost perfect defensive record while Manchester United are on a 19 away games unbeaten streak.
Chelsea NEEDs to win today to end Man United’s undefeated away run. Chelsea currently hold the record of 20 away games unbeaten and United are on 19, while Ole Solksjear has openly said he wants to end Tuchel’s unbeaten run also, so Game on.
