Eden Hazard key for Chelsea as Manchester United look to break Old Trafford spell

Written by

Premier League leaders Chelsea will be looking to inch ever closer to securing the title when they travel to Old Trafford to face a Manchester United side unbeaten in their previous 21 league games.

Jose Mourinho’s side last defeat in the Premier League came when these two sides met at Stamford Bridge all the way back in October, with Pedro’s goal inside 30 seconds setting the tone in a 4-0 win.

Since then United have gone almost six months without losing in the league, although they still remain firmly locked in a battle with Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal for a Champions League spot.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are seven points clear of London rivals Tottenham – although victory for Spurs on Saturday lunch-time could cut the gap to just four points prior to kick-off at Old Trafford.
