Chelsea vs Man United: Premier League – LIVE!

Leaders Chelsea will hope to either further extend their lead at the summit or pull back clear of Manchester City, who can go level on points with a win over West Ham earlier in the afternoon.

Thomas Tuchel’s side have produced two more emphatic statements to concern their rivals following the international break, brushing aside Leicester eight days ago before demolishing the once mighty Juventus to secure Champions League passage.

However, the news that Ben Chilwell has suffered ACL damage is unquestionably a huge blow to the title favourites, who could have Romelu Lukaku back on the bench here.

United began the post-Ole Gunnar Solskjaer era with a narrow win over Villarreal and Michael Carrick will take charge of the team again in west London as we await official confirmation that Ralf Rangnick will take the reins as interim manager until the end of the season.

The Red Devils are looking to halt a disastrous run of five defeats from their last seven league matches and look to the future.

Hope comes from the fact that Chelsea haven’t won any of the last seven league meetings between these two sides.
