Chelsea Look to Extend their Unbeaten Record on the Road

Last Match

Man Utd came from behind to crush Newcastle Utd 4-1 at the weekend. An own goal from full-back Luke Shaw put the hosts in front, but 20-minutes later Maguire brought United back onto level terms. The game appeared to be heading for a draw as the teams matched moved into the last 5-minutes all square. However, a goal from Bruno Fernandes put the visitors in front and further strikes from Wan-Bissaka and Rashford secured a 4-1 win for Man Utd.

Chelsea's home game against Southampton produced more goals than the Newcastle vs Man Utd game, but the pair had to settle for a point apiece. A brace from Werner saw Chelsea lead 2-0 within the opening half-hour, but shortly before the break, Ings pulled a goal back for the Saints. The visitors equalised in the second half through Adams, but Chelsea restored their 1-goal advantage 2-minutes later through Havertz. Frank Lampard's men looked to have done enough to win the game only for Vestergaard to equalise for Southampton in stoppage time.

Form Guide

With four wins and two defeats from their last six matches in all competitions, Man Utd head into Saturday's clash as the form favourites. However, each of those defeats arrived in United's two home games in the Premier League. The Red Devils look more comfortable on the road than they do in their own backyard, which should encourage Chelsea this weekend.

Chelsea have picked up two wins, three draws, and one defeat from their last six matches, though did also lose on penalties against Spurs. Lampard's men haven't lost on the road this season, picking up one win and two draws in 90-minutes across all competitions. The visitors are unbeaten in their last five matches, if you don't include the shoot-out defeat, and have been scoring goals for fun.

Head to Head Record

Man Utd lead the head to head record between these two old rivals, which isn't a surprise considering their dominance of English football over the years. However, the last time the two clubs locked horns, Chelsea ran out the victors. Goals from Giroud, Mount, and a Maguire own goal helped Chelsea on their way to a 3-1 win in the FA Cup. Fernandes scored United's only goal from the penalty spot late on.

Team News

Anthony Martial is suspended for the hosts, but new signing Edinson Cavani could make his Man Utd debut. Axel Tuanzebe will face a late fitness test, while Mason Greenwood and Phil Jones could both miss out through injury.

Chelsea have concerns over Billy Gilmour, Edouard Mendy, and Thiago Silva, but the core of their team is expected to be fit and ready for the trip to Old Trafford. Both teams look good going forward and haven't been keeping many clean sheets, which bodes well for Saturday's much-anticipated Premier League clash.

Timo Werner to Score

Following on from his goal for Germany in the Nations League against Switzerland, Timo Werner scored 2-goals in Chelsea's 3-3 draw with Southampton at the weekend. The former RB Leipzig man is finally settling in at Stamford Bridge and is starting to look like the top European striker we all expected. Man Utd's defence will have their work cut out for them this weekend, especially as they have only kept two clean sheets in their last six attempts.
