Chelsea travel to Old Trafford


The Blues travel up to Manchester twice in the next week, facing Manchester United in the first fixture on Sunday before taking on City at the Etihad at the start of March.

The Blues have only lost once at Old Trafford in the last six Premier League and FA Cup matches since 2012.

That match was last season, the first time ex-Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho took on his old side from the Red Devils' home dugout.

The Special One managed to keep Antonio Conte's Blues at bay in that fixture, but in the other two games, a League match and a Cup tie, Chelsea emerged victorious.

Both sides come into Sunday's game on the back of draws with Spanish teams in Europe. The Blues deserved more than the 1-1 scoreline against Barcelona, while United had David De Gea to thank for their clean sheet as they drew 0-0 with Sevilla.

With three points separating the two sides, a win could make a huge difference to the Premier League table. If Chelsea win by more than three goals then they will overtake United in the table.

The teams competing with them for the Champions League places, Tottenham and Liverpool, both play before, and could knock Chelsea out of the top four.

Recent results against United aren't the only reason the Blues will be confident going into the game, there's history on their side as well.

United have lost more games (18) and let in more goals (67) playing the Blues in the Premier League than against any other side.

The race for a Champions League spot will hot up in the last few weeks of the season. As well as trips to United and City, Chelsea have home games against Spurs and Liverpool to look forward to.

Leaving Manchester with points on either Sunday will be seen as a good result, but the Blues will know that the remaining Stamford Bridge games against two of the top six teams are likely to be must-win.

As the players often say in post-match interviews, though, you have to take your season a game at a time, so first Chelsea turn their attention to Sunday's match, looking to take all three points back to South London.
