Manchester United host Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday eager to give their hopes of finishing in the top four a major boost.
United head into the game sixth in the table and anything less than a victory would virtually end their hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
The Red Devils have faced Chelsea twice this season, drawing 2-2 at Stamford Bridge in the league and securing a 2-0 victory in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
However, a run of seven defeats in their last nine competitive games has dampened the mood around Old Trafford.
They have failed to score in their last three fixtures and desperately need to find their form in front of goal this weekend.
Chelsea’s recent away form will give United hope, with Maurizio Sarri’s side winning just two of their last seven top-flight matches on the road.
The Blues are winless in eight league games away to the other ‘Big Six’ clubs since defeating Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley back in August 2017.

Chelsea: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson, Kovacic, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Higuain, Hazard.
