Manchester United will look to build on Tuesday’s impressive performance in the Champions League when they face Chelsea in the Premier League. Both teams have had below par starts to the season but a win for either could really kickstart their respective campaigns.

Man United Form


Man United were fully deserving of their 2-1 win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek after an impressive display. Goals from Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford sealed another impressive European win in Paris for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as they made a winning start.

With that win, United have now won four of their last five games in all competitions. The one stain on that streak was the humiliating 6-1 loss to Tottenham. 

United's home form has been a huge early worry, with the Red Devils losing both of their Premier League games at Old Trafford this season. They have conceded nine goals in the process.

Man United Team News


Manchester United will be without Anthony Martial through suspension this weekend, while Harry Maguire and Eric Bailly are both carrying knocks. That should mean that Axel Tuanzebe retains his place at the heart of the defence after his excellent performance in Paris.

Chelsea Form


It’s taking time for Chelsea to bed all of their new signings into the team and their patchy form is testament to the lack of cohesion and continuity in the squad. 

Chelsea were involved in a 0-0 bore draw at home to Sevilla in their Champions League opener on Tuesday. While the performance won’t have captured the imagination, it was a second clean sheet in three games for Chelsea.

Defensive frailties were highlighted in their previous Premier League outing as they twice threw away leads to draw 3-3 with Southampton. A brace from Timo Werner and a Kai Havertz strike proved to only be enough for a point as Danny Ings, Che Adams and Jannik Vestergaard all netted for the away side. 

Chelsea have now managed just one win in their last five games in all competitions.

Chelsea Team News


With Hakim Ziyech now back and fully fit, Frank Lampard has all of his lauded attacking options available to him this weekend. Edouard Mendy will retain his place in goal after coming in for Kepa Arrizabalaga against Sevilla, while Mateo Kovacic will be pushing to start after coming on as a substitute midweek.

Man United vs Chelsea Head to Head


Manchester United have won 81 games against Saturday’s opponents compared to Chelsea’s 55 wins. There have also been 51 draws played out between the two clubs. The sides met four times in all competitions last season and it was United who proved most successful, winning on three occasions. They did, however, lose the most recent meeting 3-1 in the FA Cup semi-final.

Man United vs Chelsea Odds


Manchester United can be backed at 2.40 on Saturday, with a Chelsea win currently priced at 2.75. It is 3.60 for a draw at Old Trafford with bet365.

Man United vs Chelsea Match Up


Manchester United and Chelsea started the season with eyes on closing the gap on Liverpool and Manchester City. Neither have lived up to those expectations early on, making this an intriguing contest for the long-term ambitions of both.

Verdict

Man United are in better form coming into this fixture and will be brimming with confidence after their performance in Paris on Tuesday. I’m expecting United to come away with the three points. 

Marcus Rashford also has five goals and three assists in 11 appearances against Chelsea and I’m backing him to get on the scoresheet this weekend.
