Man Utd have had a rough time recently in the Premier League, losing three of their past four matches, including two in a row going into this game. At one point they looked favourites to qualify for the Champions League but now they will be fighting just to reach the Europa Conference League.
Thanks to back-to-back defeats against Everton and Arsenal, Man Utd currently sit sixth, six points behind the Gunners having played a game more. The Red Devils have just four games left to play, and this match will actually give their rivals another game in hand, moved earlier due to Chelsea’s participation in next month’s FA Cup final. Man Utd’s chances of finishing in the top four are already slim, currently rated at 0.12% by Opta’s AI-powered season predictions, but another defeat here would put Ralf Rangnick’s side on the brink of being mathematically out.
It’s an important game for Chelsea too, who will still have an eye over their shoulders at the chasing pack in their own quest to secure Champions League football. The Blues are currently third, seven points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham Hotspur thanks to their late 1-0 win over West Ham United on Sunday, while also having a game in hand.
But the Blues laboured to that victory over West Ham and aren’t in the best of form. Thomas Tuchel’s men have won two and lost two of their past four Premier League matches, beaten by Arsenal and Brentford in pretty convincing fashion. Then there’s the ongoing issues of the club’s future and the announcement that Antonio Rudiger will be leaving in the summer, all adding to the discourse at Stamford Bridge. Win at Old Trafford, though, and Chelsea will be almost certain of a spot in next season’s Champions League.

Man Utd vs Chelsea match stats
Mason Mount has been Chelsea’s standout performer this season, scoring 10 goals and providing nine assists in the Premier League alone, and he’s slightly better away from home. The English midfielder has been directly involved in 10 goals in 14 away appearances in the Premier League this season, scoring five and recording five assists. One more assist and Mount would join Mohamed Salah as one of the two Premier League players to hit 10+ goals and 10+ assists this season.
A lot has been said about Chelsea’s home form recently as they lost three games in a row across all competitions before ending that run against West Ham on Sunday, but the Blues have been much better on the road. Chelsea are currently on their best away run in the club’s history, winning eight consecutive matches and only Man City (39) have won more points on the road than their 36 in the Premier League this season.

Man Utd are unbeaten in their past eight Premier League matches against Chelsea, since a 1-0 win for the Blues in November 2017 – while they have only lost one of the past 10 across all competitions (losing in the 2020 FA Cup semi-final). You have to go back a while to find Chelsea’s last win at Old Trafford, however, with current Man Utd player Juan Mata scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win for Rafa Benitez’s side in May 2013.
