Manchester United vs. Chelsea: Premier League – Match Preview

Two sides who have made mixed starts to the Premier League season meet on Saturday as Manchester United host Chelsea.

Manchester United go into the game on the back of an excellent week, thrashing Newcastle United 4-1 with some late goals last weekend.

In the Champions League they recorded an impressive 2-1 win away at last seasons runners-up Paris Saint Germain.

Chelsea conceded late on to be held disappointingly by Southampton, as the pair shared the spills in a six goal thriller.

On Tuesday evening they played out a goalless draw at home with Europa League champions Sevilla.

Match history
Manchester United won both league meetings last term, including a 4-0 victory at Old Trafford, with Marcus Rashford scoring twice.

Chelsea did get revenge in the FA Cup though, winning the semi-final between the two 3-1.

Anthony Martial remains suspended for the hosts, who are also likely to be without Mason Greenwood.

Harry Maguire missed the win in Paris and is a doubt here as well.
