Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 26
Venue: Stamford Bridge (London)
Manchester United have been pretty on and off all season, struggling to churn out positive results and performances on a regular basis. Inconsistency has been the order of the day at the Theatre of Dreams and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be required to steady the ship sooner rather than later.

The home side sit fourth on the log, a whopping six points clear of this weekend’s opponent. However, the Blues are on thin ice with no less than six Premier League sides breathing heavily down their neck, looking to usurp them into the highly-coveted top-four mix.

Stamford Bridge will be buzzing on Monday night as Champions League hopefuls Manchester United make the trip to London to take on Frank Lampard’s Chelsea, both sides tussling for bragging rights and more importantly, maximum points.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Team News

It was always going to be a testing season for Chelsea as a transfer ban meant that they were unable to improve their squad ahead of the current campaign. Frank Lampard was also untried as a head coach at the top level, but the Blues are currently in control of fourth position in the table.

Indeed, despite suffering eight defeats in their 25 matches, a total of 41 points has left them two points clear of fifth-placed Sheffield United. Fifth could ultimately be enough for a Champions League spot due to Manchester City's European ban, although the English champions are appealing the shock decision.

Chelsea have only actually won one of their last five in the league and entered their winter break off the back of successive draws at home to Arsenal and away to Leicester City.

They have lost four times at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this season, meanwhile, with Liverpool, West Ham United, Bournemouth and Southampton all leaving the famous stadium with all three points.

Indeed, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer 's side recorded a 4-0 win over Chelsea on the opening weekend of the 2019-20 Premier League season before also beating the Blues 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in the EFL Cup in October.

Both Premier League matches between the two sides last season finished level, meanwhile, meaning that the Red Devils have actually not lost to the capital side in the Premier League since November 2017.

United, like Chelsea, have only won one of their last five in the league, though, losing three times in the process. Arsenal, Liverpool and Burnley have all beaten them 2-0 in 2020, while they entered the winter break off the back of a goalless draw at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on February 1.

A record of nine wins, eight draws and eight defeats from 25 matches has left them in ninth position in the table, six points behind Chelsea ahead of kickoff. While a defeat at Stamford Bridge would not end their top-four hopes, it would be a damaging defeat for the 20-time English champions.

Chelsea vs Man United Predictions

This should be a cracking game in the English capital. Both teams will feel that they can hurt the opposition in the final third, and it is set to be a fascinating 90 minutes of action. Chelsea's home form this season has not exactly been terrific, but United have had big problems with consistency. We are finding it very difficult to separate the two sides and have therefore backed a low-scoring draw.
