Chelsea have a massive game coming up against Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge which could have far reaching bearings on the outcome of the top four race. The Blues are currently fifth in the league table with 43 points from 25 games. They had a minor blip against Southampton in the previous game which ended their four game winning run. They were brilliant against Atletico Madrid in Europe where their solid defensive game brought a positive result. Second placed Manchester United are 13 points off league leaders Manchester City with the title race done and dusted.

Chelsea will be without the services of defender Thiago Silva as he recovers from a thigh injury. N’Golo Kante could be given a start in place of Jorginho to keep a check on Bruno Fernandes and Fred. Olivier Giroud scored a world class against Atletico Madrid and his confidence would be sky high at the moment as he leads the home team’s attack. Behind the Frenchman, Mason Mount and Timo Werner should line up as the attacking midfielders.
Scott McTominay and Paul Pogba continue to remain sidelined for Manchester United while there is some positive news on Donny Van de Beek with the Dutchman expected to make the matchday squad. Nemanja Matic was neat in possession against the Magpies and his partnership with Fred could play a huge role in this match. Bruno Fernandes remains Manchester United’s biggest threat in attack but needs to find a way past Chelsea’s strong man marking.
