Kick-off: Saturday, October 20, 2018. 11:30 GMT
Venue: Stamford Bridge
We are back from the international break, and Chelsea and Manchester United have a Saturday lunch-time kick-off to resume Premier League hostilities.
The game is between Chelsea who are second on the table and United who are in 8th spot. Maurizio Sarri’s men are in extraordinary form and are yet to lose a game this season. The Blues have won four of their last six league games and are unbeaten in all competitions.
For Jose Mourinho’s side, they have struggled really hard this season and have gotten a win just once in their last five games in all competitions. In the last six league games, it’s been three wins, two defeats and a draw.
Jose Mourinho has found it hard at Stamford Bridge since he became Manchester United boss and has lost in all his three visits to the Bridge with United.
Chelsea have a very good record against Manchester United in recent years especially at Stamford Bridge where Chelsea have only tasted one defeat in the past 16 Premier League meetings against United, which was in October 2012 when we had two players sent off (W10, D5, L1).
United have never won at the Bridge since Sir Alex Ferguson retired and United have a bad record entering the game as they have kept just one league clean sheet this season and conceded 14 goals; only three teams have fared worse.
Chelsea head into this game with a nice defence as the Blues have kept four clean sheets in their last six games in all competitions.
My prediction: Despite United’s current woes at the moment, it’s still a big game and Manchester United are going to make it difficult for the Blues. But Sarri’s men will still carry the day.
