Chelsea vs Man United: Premier League preview

With Manchester City’s winning streak putting them 10 points clear of second-paced United, the real drama at the top looks set to be the battle for Champions League qualification.

United are sitting pretty six points ahead of fifth-placed Chelsea, but with plenty of teams still harbouring hopes of a top-four finish, a bad result against a direct rival such as Chelsea could turn things upside down.

Chelsea are still lacking a clinical edge, but a fine 1-0 Champions League win at Atletico Madrid in midweek will see Tuchel’s side enter this game on a real high – and it will be up to the Blues to chase down the Red Devils.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Chelsea vs Man Utd is scheduled for a 4:30pm GMT kick-off on Sunday, February 28, 2021.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Stamford Bridge due to coronavirus restrictions.

Thiago Silva has an outside chance of returning for Chelsea, though it remains to be seen whether Tuchel will risk the Brazilian – especially with Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen keeping a clean sheet together in Madrid.

Solskjaer confirmed that he hopes to have Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani back from injury, though Paul Pogba is still out. Dan James came off against Sociedad with a knock so is a doubt.

Tuchel is yet to taste defeat as Chelsea boss, so United will have to be tactically sound to outsmart the German coach. A tight draw is the most likely result.
