Chelsea have a huge game at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, as Manchester United come visiting the Bridge for our 26th league game of the season.

Frank Lampard will be aiming for his first win against Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, having lost to United twice this season.

It’s a huge game that can also play a role in how the table will shape after the weekend games, and Sky Sports pundit Charlie Nicholas is predicting a tough game. However, Charlie Nicholas believes that the Blues can snatch a 2-1 victory.

The Sky Sports pundit said: “We have another very intriguing match on the cards on Monday.

“The race for the top four is fascinating. Can Chelsea make it? Again, they are a side who are quite awkward at home.

“Tammy Abraham had a few niggles before the winter break, while Mason Mount was left out for the game against Arsenal and these things can start to take a strain.

“Willian has been class but went cold for a few games, so the break may have come just at the right time for them so that they can get back to the basics.

“Manchester United will have got some of their players fit during the break. They were excellent when they went to Manchester City twice, but they are showing no consistency.

“This is why people are still backing, and hoping for, Mauricio Pochettino to come in.

“I do think Chelsea will have enough, but they will need to focus on getting their style right and doing the basics effectively. Chelsea 2-1 Manchester United.”
