Chelsea are getting set for another massive tie as the Blues host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

BBC Sports Pundit Mark Lawrenson has predicted a win for Chelsea despite the signings made by Manchester United and lack of transfer by the Blues.

Stating his prediction for the game, the former Liverpool player said:

“I am not expecting to see any massive difference in the way Manchester United line up, or the way they play.

“Yes, Bruno Fernandes has had a bit more time to settle in but I don’t think their other major January signing, Odion Ighalo, will start.

“Chelsea, of course, did not bring anyone in but I actually think that takes the pressure off their manager Frank Lampard because everyone knows he has to make do with what he has already got.”

Chelsea are currently six points above United and a win for the Blues will extend the gap to 9 points, and further strengthen the club’s grip on top four.

Lawrenson’s prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Man United
