The two played out a pair of goalless draws last season and Chelsea last won a league fixture against United in 2017. There have been four draws and three losses for the Blues since then. However, this current Chelsea is looking very strong.

Thomas Tuchel has just celebrated his 50th game in charge with a big 4-0 victory over Juventus. It marks his 32nd Chelsea win and the team picked up their 31st clean sheet. The Blues have conceded only 24 goals since Tuchel arrived in January while suffering just seven losses.

Romelu Lukaku’s injury threatened to derail Chelsea’s season, but they won their first game without him 7-0 and have notched 10 points in four league outings during the Belgian’s absence. Lukaku was back on the bench against Juve, and he’ll be out for some revenge against his former side if he gets a chance to play on Sunday.

This will the second game in charge for temporary United manager Michael Carrick. He had a pretty decent debut in the Champions League midweek shutting down Villarreal and sealing qualification into the next round with a 2-0 away victory.

Carrick used a very conservative game plan and it was clear to see that he focused on keeping a clean sheet with the hopes of punishing tired legs during the final stages of the game. The plan worked out perfectly as substitutes Jadon Sancho and Bruno Fernandes were too much to handle for the Yellow Submarine.

Sancho finally got his first United goal on Tuesday, which should provide him a nice boost in confidence. He failed to establish himself under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but Sancho now gets a fresh start and he should be very eager to prove his worth. United will likely play a counter-attacking style at the Bridge and Sancho could end up as the key figure for them with his pace and trickery.
