This game is key in the battle for a top-four spot
Both clubs are in great shape, and the new managers have characterised their refined philosophy as United and Chelsea are looking sharp, and their meeting will determine who will have the authority to sit in fourth place.
Chelsea‘s midweek draw at Brentford puts them just one point ahead of Manchester United, and the Blues intend to extend that lead when they face a driven Manchester United, who defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Old Trafford. Man United, in contrast, were particularly good in a 2-0 rout of Spurs, who are third in the table. This was one of United’s best performances under Ten Hag; they held the game in check by high pressing and allowing Tottenham less time on the ball.
This performance will offer them a substantial boost for Saturday’s match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The two clubs have formed a fierce rivalry, and a few of their matches have been iconic; we look at their head-to-head statistics below.
