In fact, the last time these two teams played a match in this stadium was on 03-03-2017, in a match for the FA Cup that ended with Chelsea’s victory by (1-0). The only goal of the match was scored by N. Kanté (51 ‘). In this game the home factor may be decisive, since Chelsea presents considerable differences in their results at home and as a visitor.
After 6 wins, 1 draw and 3 losses, the home team is currently in the 4 th position, with 19 points won. In the last match, they have won in an away match against Bournemouth by (0-1), after in the previous match they have won (4-2) at home, against Watford.

Chelsea is making a good English championship, in which it occupies a place at the top of the qualifying table, comes from 2 consecutive victories in the national championship and needs to maintain good performance, to try to decrease the distance of 9 points for the leader of the national championship. The home team is characterized by an effective attack, which scored 18 goals and is the fifth best of the Premier League, while the defense suffered 10 goals, being the sixth best, demonstrating the good balance between offensive and defensive sectors , although there is room for improvement in both sectors, due to the quality of its workforce. Playing at home, as in Sunday’s game, Chelsea has been encountering certain difficulties, winning only 1 of the last 3 games and not scoring in 2 of these games, needing to be more efficient in this type of situation. For the match against Manchester United, coach Antonio Conte should be able to count on the return of Kante, an essential player in the defensive system of the team.
After 7 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss, the away team is currently in the 2 nd position, with 23 points won. In the penultimate match, they lost in an away match against Huddersfield Town, by (2-1).

This is a team that usually maintains its competitive levels in home and away matches, since in the last 30 matches they register 9 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses in away matches, with 29 goals scored and 12 conceded; against 12 wins and 3 draws in their stadium, with 35 goals scored and 5 suffered. The team comes to this match after a home win against Benfica by (2-0). For the league, Manchester United won 8 points out of 15 possible points, after 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in the last 5 home matches. Defensive consistency has been one of their best features, as they have only conceded goals in 2 of the last 10 matches, and their offense has scored consistently, as they have scored goals in 9 of the last 10 matches for this competition.
Manchester United has been making a great campaign in the Premier League, finished a 2-game series without winning with a big victory in the classic against Tottenham on the last day and goes in search of another 3 points to not let rival Manchester City will open an even greater lead in the leadership of the competition. The secret to the optimum performance so far has been the great balance between the offensive and defensive sectors, since he scored 23 goals, being the best attack of the national championship, and suffered only 4 goals, having the best defense. Playing away from home, like Sunday’s game, Manchester United did not win 2 games, but did not suffer goals in 3 of the 5 games they played as visitors, where they usually play in a somewhat cautious way, without exposing themselves as much. For the classic against Chelsea, coach José Mourinho must repeat the eleven used in the victory over Tottenham on the last day.
