Stamford Bridge gears up for the arrival of Manchester United
Chelsea and Manchester United meet in a Premier League showdown at Stamford Bridge as both sides try to strike a blow in the race for the top four. With Manchester City moving 13 points clear at the top yesterday, it seems increasingly likely that Pep Guardiola’s side will clinch the title, and it seems United’s best bet may be to consolidate their position in the Champions League places. United are six points clear of fifth-placed Chelsea, so this game carries a six point swing either way.
The Blues are going well under Thomas Tuchel but a disappointing draw against Southampton has halted their progress. This will be their first serious test in the Premier League since the German’s arrival, although victory over Atletico Madrid in the Champions League last-16 first leg showed plenty of promise.
