Chelsea host Manchester United in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Ahead of the game at Stamford Bridge, ex-Liverpool man Mark Lawrenson has given his prediction for the game.

“Manchester United won convincingly enough in the end against Newcastle last weekend – but they had a wobble like they do in most games,” Lawrenson told the BBC.

“United have been excellent on the road this season but you just know that Chelsea will make it difficult for them.

“Tuchel got a great result in Europe with Tuesday’s win over Atletico Madrid. That was probably his best result in eight games as Blues boss so far.

“I am pretty sure his remit is to get them a top-four finish, so they are back in the Champions League again next season. From what we’ve seen so far, he’s got a really good chance of doing it.”
