Manchester United look set to appoint Ralf Rangnick as interim manager, but in the meantime Michael Carrick will take charge of his second game as temporary head coach when he travels with his squad to the reigning European champions on Sunday, looking to make it two wins from two after seeing off Villarreal.

The former midfield metronome oversaw a much-needed win against the Europa League winners at the Estadio de la Ceramica on Tuesday night to secure Man Utd a passage to the Champions League knockouts. He will now want to complete his ephemeral stint in the hotseat with a memorable result against the Blues.

Things continue to get better and better under Thomas Tuchel in the capital. Chelsea are looking defensively impenetrable and devastating in attack, a deadly combo that has culminated in them sitting atop the Premier League table and fresh from a 4-0 battering over Italian giants Juventus.

Last season’s Champions League winners mean serious business this season. They are arguably the most organised and disciplined unit in the division, so Man Utd will really need to buck up their ideas or risk an onslaught in the same vein as their home defeats to Man City and Liverpool.

Chelsea vs Man Utd: Match Stats

Chelsea simply don’t concede. They are harder to penetrate than a bank vault and can hold onto a lead like nobody’s business. In fact, Tuchel’s men have conceded just four goals in the Premier League this season. Only Chelsea themselves, famously under Jose Mourinho (three in 2004/05) have shipped fewer at this stage of an English top-flight campaign. They finished that season with the title and having only let in 15 goals, a record in the Premier League.

One of the main reasons Chelsea are so defensively solid is down to how hard they work. A basic premise, but when applied effectively, the results are devastating. Jorginho encapsulates this mode of thought. The Italian tempo-setter is Chelsea’s third-most prolific player when it comes to tackles in the Premier League this season (21), and will certainly be looking to continue that trend when an attack-heavy Man Utd come to town.

Neutrals will be preying another 0-0 doesn’t occur between these two sides, which is exactly what unravelled last season. Quite incredibly, despite Man Utd’s troubles in recent years, Chelsea are winless in their last seven Premier League games against them, only having a longer run without a league win against the Red Devils once before (10 games between 1938 and 1950).
