Chelsea will play host to Manchester United, as the two English giants lock horns at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

One thing United boss Olé Gunnar Solskjaer will be keen on doing is to break a very tight Chelsea defence.

Chelsea’s defence have become impenetrable under new boss Thomas Tuchel, as the Blues have only conceded in two games since the German was made Chelsea head coach.

Chelsea remain unbeaten under Tuchel, and Solskjaer has admitted that he wants to end that run on Sunday.

“You can see in the results, stats and possession they’ve had, the ability to keep teams away from their own goal, he’s done really well,” said Solskjaer.

“It is never easy coming into a season halfway through and he must be pleased as well, but hopefully we can stop that run. That’s my job now.”
