Chelsea vs. Manchester United: Premier League – Match Preview

Chelsea entertain Manchester United in the Saturday evening kick-off as two of the in-form sides go head to head.

Chelsea dropped points for the first time under new manager Graham Potter as they drew 0-0 away at Brentford midweek.

David Raya and Kepa Arrizabalaga both excelled for their respective sides to earn clean sheets.

Manchester United put in their best performance of the Erik ten Haag era as they eased past Tottenham 2-0 on Wednesday evening.

A deflected Fred effort opened the scoring, before Bruno Fernandes doubled the advantage with a superb effort.

Fred excelled on Wednesday evening and should keep his spot with United likely to name an unchanged XI.
