Huge Clash at Stamford Bridge Between Chelsea and Manchester United

The biggest match of the weekend in the English Premier League takes place at Stamford Bridge on Sunday the 28th of February as Chelsea meet Manchester United.

The hosts begin the weekend in 5th place on 43 points while the visitors are in second place on 49 points, so this is an important fixture in terms of the top four.

Chelsea come into the game having recorded an excellent 1-0 away victory against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Tuesday night. However, it is worth pointing out this match was played in Romania, rather than the home stadium of Atletico Madrid. Nonetheless, it was a great victory for the Blues.

That result means Chelsea are undefeated in their last 9 games in all competitions, including each of their last 6 in the Premier League. Their most recent result in the league was a 1-1 draw at Southampton but prior to that, Chelsea recorded four straight wins, including home victories over Burnley and Newcastle United.

Trends show Chelsea are undefeated in 10 of their 11 most recent home games in the Premier League. They have won each of their last two home fixtures in the competition and have managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last 3 on home soil.

Manchester United travel to London having qualified for the Round of 16 in the Europa League on Thursday night. The Red Devils were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Real Sociedad but the damage had already been done in the first leg courtesy of a 4-0 victory in Turin.

That result means Manchester United are undefeated in their last 8 games in all competitions and have lost only one of their last 14 matches.

Form in the Premier League shows Manchester United are undefeated in their 5 most recent games in the competition. They continue to be difficult to beat away from home and trends show Manchester United are enjoying a period of 19 straight away games without a defeat in the Premier League.

Manchester United have seen under 2.5 goals scored in each of their last 5 away Premier League matches and have drawn 3 of their last 5 on the road.

Looking ahead to the team news and Chelsea could be without central defender Thiago Silva, who has a muscle injury. Every other player should be fit and available for Thomas Tuchel and it will be interesting to see who gets the nod up-front.

Manchester United are expected to be without four players as Scott McTominay, Édinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek, and Paul Pogba continue their recovery from injury. Harry Maguire should come back into central defence having been rested on Thursday night.

This has the makings of being a tight game and both teams will be wary of losing, which could see a defensive approach, especially from the visitors. However, we could still see goals, all be it under 2.5 goals and the points shared in a 1-1 draw.
