It’s an all-time Premier League classic as Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge in search of just their fourth win in the Premier League at the home of Chelsea with the Blues looking to remain unbeaten under new manager Graham Potter.
The former Brighton & Hove Albion man has got Chelsea ticking this season, and although Thomas Tuchel was unfortunate to get sacked, Potter has improved Chelsea considerably. The club have managed to defeat the Serie A champions AC Milan both home and away in his short tenure with the Blues so far, keeping a clean sheet in both games.
Chelsea did stumble slightly in midweek as they drew with Brentford 0-0, but this keeps Potter in the unbeaten column so far with the west London outfit. They also managed to beat Aston Villa last week as Mason Mount managed to score twice in the game, which included a stunning free kick from range.
As for United, they are heading into this game having beaten another top club in the Premier League under Erik ten Hag following a comfortable 2-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur. What’s more, this now means the former Ajax boss has outclassed Jurgen Klopp, Antonio Conte and Mikel Arteta already this season, racking up all three points against Arsenal, Spurs and Liverpool.
Stamford Bridge is a completely different for United, however, with such a terrible record at the ground. In fact, even Sir Alex Ferguson only won there twice, but the Red Devils can jump ahead of Chelsea if they win here.
