    How to follow Chelsea v United | 28 November 2021

    HEAD-TO-HEAD

    Chelsea and United played out a couple of goalless draws in last season’s behind-closed-doors games, but we have a good recent record against the Blues in the Premier League, having not lost to the capital club since November 2017.
    Stamford Bridge has traditionally been a bit of a bogey ground for us, with the Reds going a decade without winning there under Sir Alex Ferguson between 2002 and 2012.

    Things have improved in recent years though and, if you include a pair of 2019 cup victories, we’re actually unbeaten in five visits to the Blues’ home. Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire were on target in the particularly memorable league success last February, just before the initial COVID-19 lockdown.

    KEY STATS

    United are unbeaten in our last seven top-flight games against Chelsea. Only once have we recorded a longer run against the Blues – a stretch of 10 between 1938 and 1950.

    We’ve kept four consecutive Premier League clean sheets against the Blues and only Newcastle in the 1910s have a longer run without conceding against Chelsea in the top flight (six).

    NFL Betting

    Carrick will be the first Englishman to take charge of Manchester United in a league game since Ron Atkinson oversaw a 1-1 draw with Coventry City in November 1986.
