Manchester United host Chelsea at Old Trafford Sunday at 2.05 GTM.
Jose Mourinho’s team is coming to this match after the goalless match against Sevilla in midweek. A lot of critics went through for him for the way Man United played and starting Pogba from the bench as well. Man United at home have a very good record with 13 matches played 10 wins 2 draws and 1 lost scoring 29 and conceding only 5 goals. Statistically the Reds have only 2 of their last 11 games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and one of those matches was a cup game against lower league Yeovil. They have another good record at home with 77% of the matches keeping a clean sheet.
Chelsea is coming in this games following their draw against Barcelona on Tuesday. Antonio Conte once again showed why he is a very talented tactician as the Blues neutralized Barcelona with only a few chances created and scoring from Chelsea’s only mistake on the match. Their Premier league form has not been as good conceding 7 goals against Bournemouth and Watford shows they need to focus more on defense. Chelsea will have to work very hard to get at least a point so they will not fall behind more to Man United and need to focus on keeping things tight at the back.
HEAD TO HEAD
The last 4 meetings between Man United and Chelsea have all ended in home wins, 3 of which were in Chelsea’s favor at Stamford Bridge. Another head to head stats at Old Trafford has seen 4 of the last 6 meetings ending with draws.

Ander Herrera suffered a hamstring injury in Seville and will miss out. Depending on the fitness of Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo, United may switch to a back three to mirror Chelsea’s approach. Paul Pogba is likely to return in midfield having been left out in midweek.
David Luiz, Ross Barkley and Tiemoué Bakayoko are injury doubts for the visitors. Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud were both left out in midweek with Morata likely to return up top here. Gary Cahill is also hoping for a recall.
