Match Preview

It has been a season to forget for both Man United and Chelsea this term, with both falling short of their pre-season targets. The Blues will have the home field advantage for this fixture, as they look for a second win in six to move back into the top half of the standings. However, an improved effort will be required after playing out a 2-2 draw against Burnley in their previous fixture.

Man United already face an uphill challenge to finish in a Champions League spot this term, as they sit seven points behind Tottenham and eleven behind Aston Villa. The Red Devils lost more ground on their rivals after being held to a 1-1 draw on the road against Brentford last weekend.

United holds the advantage based on previous meetings, as the Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 12 league fixtures against the Blues. This is currently their longest unbeaten run against the Blues. United landed victory in the reverse fixture this term, but they haven’t claimed a league double over their London rivals since 2019-20.

However, United’s record in London this season is extremely concerning. The Red Devils have recorded just one victory from nine visits to the capital, losing four of their last six. Meanwhile, Chelsea are winless in their last six league matches in April since a victory over West Ham in 2022.

Chelsea vs Man United Prediction

Both Chelsea and United are hugely inconsistent, meaning that it will be challenging to predict the outcome on Thursday. Therefore, we could see the draw being a likely result at Stamford Bridge.
