The Manchester United vs Chelsea match will be played on Sunday, April 16, at the Old Trafford Stadium, Manchester. Manchester United is currently 5th on the table with 57 points, while Chelsea leads with 75 points at the moment. Manchester United has a game in hand.


  • Manchester United is currently in a series of 6 matches without a defeat in all competitions. In fact, they lost only one game in their previous 18 games, and that loss came against their next rival, Chelsea, in FA Cup.
  • Chelsea lost only one game in the last 15 matches. Crystal Palace stunned them on April 1, and defeated by 2-1 on Stamford Bridge.


In their last 10 meetings, Chelsea won 6 games, while 4 matches ended in a draw. The last victory for Manchester United came in 2012, when they celebrated a 3-2 victory at Stamford Bridge, while their last win on Old Trafford happened in 2011. That is the longest undefeated run of any team on Old Trafford in Premier League history.


Manchester United recorded 12 draws so far in Premier League season, which is the most out of all teams. They failed to defeat Everton and WBA at Old Trafford recently and their chances to finish in the top four are slim. If they fail to beat Chelsea, Manchester United might miss another Champions League edition, which would break another negative record in Manchester United history.

Chelsea holds the first place firmly, and it seems they are destined to lift the trophy in the end. Tottenham is their only rival, and they are 4 points behind them at the moment. If Chelsea avoids spilling the points against weaker rivals, such as Crystal Palace, they will be the next English champions.

Manchester United simply must win the forthcoming match, but Chelsea is dominating against them in the last 5 years. The draw is the most likely result, and we don't expect to see many goals in the upcoming game.
