Chelsea vs Manchester United Prediction
Chelsea are becoming a possession oriented solid defensive unit under Thomas Tuchel with a knack of finding goals, but they are expected to find the going touch against a highly motivated Manchester United.
Man United lead the head-to-head record over Chelsea 81 wins to 55, while there have also been 52 draws between the two sides in all competitions, dating back to 1905.
Manchester United could afford to give some of his first team players a rest in midweek thanks to their 4-0 first leg lead over Real Sociedad, but Sunday will see the likes of Marcus Rashford, Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire return to the fold as they look to build on last weekend’s win.
