Is Manchester United vs Chelsea on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Manchester United host Chelsea on Wednesday night looking to get back to winning ways in the Premier League after a stumble at St. James’ Park. Erik ten Hag’s men lost 1-0 to Newcastle on Sunday as Anthony Gordon’s second half strike took the Magpies ahead of United in the table.

That defeat continued the Red Devils’ recent trends of losing away from home and in big games but they’re at home for the visit of Mauricio Pochettino’s struggling Blues which should provide some stability. A victory would also quiet some of the displeasure being voiced about United’s rag-tag season.

Chelsea, meanwhile, overcame a Conor Gallagher red card to earn themselves a 3-2 victory over Brighton at the weekend, a result which Pochettino believes ‘showed the character’ of his team.

It is a good time for the teams to meet as both are struggling for consistency and form meaning there will be chances created at either end. Manchester United’s forward line aren’t firing but they tend to draw inspiration from the Old Trafford crowd and should score against the Blues. Chelsea will be hoping the experience of Raheem Sterling comes into play and if he can link up the rest of the forward line they should get a few good shots in at Andre Onana.

Manchester United 2-2 Chelsea.
