Manchester United will be visiting Stamford Bridge in the next hour to face Chelsea in the biggest test of interim manager Micheal Carrick after the departure of former manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. 

The last time both teams met, the game ended in a goalless draw. Chelsea have failed to score a Premier League goal against Manchester United since 2019 and they will be looking forward to seeing the back of the net at Stamford Bridge.

Both teams have met 58 times with Chelsea winning 18 and Manchester United winning 17 and they drew 23 times. Wayne Rooney remains the highest goalscorer of the clash. The last time Chelsea defeated Manchester United at home was 2017 in a 1-0 win. 

Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea are top of the table with 29 points, 12 points ahead of Manchester United in 10th position. Should Chelsea be able to secure a maximum three points it will boost their title race challenge as Manchester City and Liverpool close by.
