For Frank Lampard and his boys, it will be an added motivation to beat United for the first time since May 2018. With the transfer ban limiting them, Chelsea could not add reinforcements. However, fans are increasingly frustrated especially as the team could not secure more talents when the transfer ban was finally lifted. In their last five games, they have won just once, and face real pressure to lose the prized Top Four spot. Liverpool, West Ham United, Bournemouth and Southampton have defeated them at home this term, and United look like a side that could worsen those numbers.
United beat them 4-0 at the opening weekend but things have since changed. In their last five games, United have also won just once, and face serious pressure to get all three points to keep their hopes alive. Without Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, it has been quite a challenge for the team to get wins. They recently added Nigeria international OdionIghalo, who is yet to feature due to the Corona Virus scare since he joined from China. The former Watford man, on loan at the club, is expected to make his debut after making the traveling squad, as per reports. He is expected to start from the bench though.
Callum Hodson-Odoi, Tammy Abraham, Willian, and Mason Mountare expected to lead the onslaught against United that would have Bruno Fernandes, Martial and Daniel James.
