Manchester United face Chelsea on Sunday aiming to boost their hopes of securing a top four finish in the Premier League.

United are currently sixth in the table and a defeat this weekend would leave them needing a miracle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The two sides drew 2-2 at Stamford Bridge earlier in the season, but United came out on top when they met again in the FA Cup during February with an impressive 2-0 victory.

They have gone off the boil in recent weeks, picking up just two wins from their last nine games in all competitions.

United haven’t scored in their last three fixtures and desperately need to rediscover some semblance of form this weekend.

Chelsea have struggled away from home recently, winning just two of their last seven Premier League matches on the road.

The Blues haven’t beaten one of the other ‘Big Six’ clubs away from home since defeating Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley back in August 2017.

Chelsea:: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Emerson, Kovacic, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Pedro, Higuain, Hazard.
