Manchester United while be on a revenge mission as they host Chelsea the league leaders , who sent Manchester United in the FA Cup with Kante's goal. The Blues have been the only side to defeat The Red Devils in all competitions and United Suffered a four Nil defeat in the their last Premier Clash. Hence, the need for revenge will fly high in the minds of the United side.

Jose Mohrinho side drew again in the Europa League Quarter Final clash with Anderlecht which increases their Unbeaten run with a Form of WWDDWD in their last six games and the side with the most draws in the Premier League top flight with most draws coming from teams they would have normally beaten.

On the other hand, Chelsea Are seven points above second place Tottenham having lost just a game in their last six game. Conte reverted back to his 3-4-3 formation against Bournemouth despite experimenting in a 3-5-2 formation against Crystal Palace and Manchester City as his injury issues are now depleted.

Manchester United will be without Chris Smalling and Phil Jones in the defense, while Antonio Valencia will feature after making a comeback against Anderlecht on Thursday. Juan Mata will be the most missed player as he continues his spell on the sidelines due to groin injury.

Manchester United might have Wayne Rooney back but the winger Ashley Young who now operates as right back will be missing due to a knock.
For Chelsea, Thibaut Courtois and David Luiz require ongoing treatment for hip and knee injuries, respectively, while Cesar Azpilicueta has been playing with a broken bone in his hand. However, none are expected to miss the trip to old Trafford on Sunday.

Chelsea has been one of the most disciplined side in the Premier League this season with only John Terry been their only player sent off this season but Costa and Luiz are both on eight bookings but will not hit the quota of 10 bookings before then.


Manchester United has had more draws than any other side this season and are also hungry for a win against Chelsea as they have gone eight games without a win against this side. I predict another draw for United.
