Man Utd vs Chelsea: 5 Talking Points Before Kick Off

Man Utd vs Chelsea: Line-ups

Man Utd

Chelsea

Red Devils Have Hot Form

#1

Manchester United have now won five of their last six games across all competitions, but the main concern will be that all five of those victories have come on the road.

#2

Home and away, Chelsea are conceding an average of 1.5 goals per game under Frank Lampard in the Premier League, which is the worst rate of any of their managers to have taken charge of more than one game in the competition.

#3

Chelsea’s last away outing in the Premier League saw them fall 3-0 down to West Bromwich Albion before salvaging a 3-3 draw, but they will know that Man United will not allow them a route back into the game so easily if they make another poor start.

#4

Anthony Martial serves the second of his three-game ban following his red card against Spurs, which could open the door for deadline-day arrival Edinson Cavani to make his debut after being left at home for the trip to his former club PSG.

#5

Chelsea are by no means away-day specialists themselves, but their matches guarantee goals at the moment and, with major question marks hanging over both defences, we can see an entertaining score draw on the cards here.
