Any interesting match stats?

  • Manchester United are without a win in eight Premier League games against Chelsea (D4 L4); their longest ever winless streak against a single opponent in the competition.
  • Chelsea, meanwhile, are looking to achieve a league double over Manchester United for the first time since the 2009-10 season under Carlo Ancelotti.
  • A win for the away side would see Antonio Conte become the fourth Chelsea boss to record a Premier League double over United, after Glenn Hoddle in 1993-94, Jose Mourinho in 2004-05 and Ancelotti in 2009-10. 
  • United have scored just three goals in their last 10 games against Chelsea in all competitions (an average of 0.3 per game).
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is in a rich vein of form
  •  N’Golo Kante has netted each of Chelsea’s last two goals against United  in all competitions – they are his only goals in 34 appearances for Conte’s side.
  • Manchester United’s Premier League unbeaten run now stands at 21 matches (W11 D10 L0) – the joint 10th longest unbeaten run in the history of the competition.
  • Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been involved in 18 goals in his last 17 Premier League appearances (13 goals, 5 assists).
  • Chelsea have won as many points this season after 31 matches as it took to win the league exactly 20 years ago (Manchester United with 75 points in 1996/97).

What are the odds?

  • United win - 7/4
  • Draw - 9/4
  • Chelsea win - 9/5

What's our prediction?

A hard-fought 1-1 draw.
