Match Preview – Chelsea vs Manchester United



It is the battle of the giants as the Red half of Manchester visits the Blue corner of London on Sunday in what promises to be an entertaining league encounter. This fixture may not boast of a lot of goals, but it will be a hard-fought, end-to-end game.



Chelsea has finally found consistency under Mourinho’s second spell in charge of the London club, winning their last four games, and more importantly, they have not depended on any one player for the majority of the goals, with even Fernando Torres finding the net twice in the last three games.


Manchester United, on the other hand, have both van Persie and Rooney out injured, which means that the onus of scoring has fallen on Danny Welbeck. However, Moyes will be hoping for a positive result, having broken the three-match losing streak with the win over Swansea last week.
