[dropcap]M[/dropcap]an U v Chelsea is always big but thanks to Tottenham’s impressive win yesterday it’s just got a whole lot bigger.
Mind the gap !! It’s down to four points and no team will want to frustrate Chelsea more than Man U who have held Chelsea to a draw in their last three Premier League encounters at Old Trafford.
However, in fairness, Chelsea are unbeaten in 12 matches against Man U in all competitions (W7, D5).
Even a draw today would breathe plenty of life back into the Premier League title race.
United manager Jose Mourinho said: “It’s not for no reason that Chelsea are top of the league.
“It’s not just because they’re fresh but they have individual quality and they have collective quality.
“They have a certain style of play, they stick to it, they do it very well.
Chelsea’s head coach Antonio Conte has the luxury of a full-strength squad and could name an unchanged side.
Cesc Fabregas and Willian are the most likely of any players to earn a recall.
