Chelsea play host to Manchester United this weekend at Stamford Bridge as the Premier League resumes on Saturday after a fortnight break due to the international break.

Chelsea are the favourites heading into this game because of the form of Maurizio Sarri’s men, while United have been in poor form this season and many don’t see them getting anything at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea are yet to lose a game this season and the Blues have been dominant in games under Sarri, playing a possession style of attacking football, while United don’t seem to have any direction in their play at the moment.

However, Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs believe United can at least snatch a point at the Bridge on Saturday.

“There’s lots being spoken about Manchester United and Jose Mourinho, but if you go back to the last game against Newcastle then them coming back like that you’d hope would give them massive confidence,” Giggs said in his Sky Sports column.

“It’s the start of a massive period for them with Chelsea, live on Sky Sports, and Juventus coming up and also Manchester City not too far away, so they’ll need that confidence.

“This is the period that United need to be getting up for the games and I wouldn’t be surprised if they come through this period pretty well because they are capable of playing against and matching the good teams.

“I was at the game against Newcastle and the visitors played really well in the first half and you sometimes get that.

“I played in games where you’re down 1-0 or 2-0 and you’re forced to go for it. With the attacking ability they’ve got they’ve always got a chance.”
