Chelsea and Manchester United meet at Stamford Bridge for the Premier League’s televised offering on Monday evening, for a top-flight fixture that could have a major impact on the race to finish in the division’s top four this season.
With a six-point buffer between them and their hosts, a victory for 8th placed United in London would drag them to within touching distance of Chelsea in 4th, however, a Blues’ victory would leave United’s already fading Champions League hopes all but extinguished.
