The match

Chelsea and Manchester United, two sides facing difficult seasons, will face off in their next Premier League game this Thursday. Both sides harbor ambitions for Europe, hosts Chelsea in 11th place and United in sixth. At 40 points, Chelsea are 16 points behind the Europa League spot, with 10 matches still to play. The Blues are coming from a 2-2 draw with Burnley in a rather poor showing at Stamford Bridge. Twice in that game Chelsea led, but 10-man Burnley still managed to claw back for a share of the spoils. Cole Palmer was on target with both goals, extending his fine start to life at Chelsea. The Englishman has been the Blues’ brightest spark this season and comes here with four goals in the last three games. At home, he has scored in six of Chelsea’s last eight home matches – eight goals in total. While it hasn’t really worked well for Chelsea, they come here unbeaten in five matches. They scored at least twice in each of the last five matches. The Blues have however conceded twice in each of the five matches.

Manchester United won the reverse fixture against Chelsea 2-1. The goal they conceded was netted by Cole Palmer, but Scott McTominay’s double won them the game. Here they come desperate for a win, having managed 48 points so far. Their tally is keeping them 11 points behind fourth place and they’ll view this as a must win game. Their shaky defence has a tougher task out there, after Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof joined the growing injury list. The duo left early in the 1-1 draw with Brentford, a result that was equally frustrating, United conceding deep in stoppage time. Mason Mount got his first United goal in the sixth minute of added time, but the lead lasted just three minutes. With just three clean sheets in 10 matches, United will hope to do better against a fine scoring Chelsea side. Erik ten Hag will however be happy with his side’s scoring form, having netted in each of the last 15 matches. In half of their last 10 away matches, they scored more than a goal. Manchester United are unbeaten in their last seven meetings with Chelsea, but only won the last two.
