NAME: Chelsea – Manchester United
DATE: 22 Oct 2022
TIME: 16:30 UTC
VENUE: Stamford Bridge, London, England
Two traditional rivals Chelsea and Manchester United renew hostilities as they are set to clash in the Premier League on Saturday at Stamford Bridge. The Blues could not overcome Brentford during their midweek clash and were held to a 0-0 draw, whereas Manchester United outclassed Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 to inch closer to the top four.
Chelsea have failed to win their last nine Premier League games against the Red Devils, the longest run without a win against a Premier League club. The last four meetings in the league have ended in draws. However, they remain undefeated at home in this campaign and have won three successive games at home.
Meanwhile, Manchester United will be hoping to replicate the form that they showed against Tottenham in their last outing. However, London has not been a happy hunting ground for the Red Devils as they have lost their last three league games in the capital.
