Manchester United head to Stamford Bridge for a challenging test against Chelsea on Saturday - a game in which they will be looking to continue a spell of fine form. United impressed in a 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday and will be eager to maintain momentum toward a top four push.
The Red Devils were held by Newcastle United a few days earlier - as the points were shared in a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford - but overall, supporters will likely be pleased with the improvement Erik ten Hag’s men have made over recent weeks.
United are just one point behind this weekend’s opponents, who are currently in fourth place. Champions League qualification is no longer a distant ambition, but first, the Red Devils must manage a positive result at the Bridge.
Chelsea have had a real upturn in form since Graham Potter arrived, picking up 10 out of the 12 points available to them - second only to Arsenal in that period. The 0-0 draw with Brentford on Wednesday was the first time they’d failed to win under Potter in the Premier League.
Scoring seven and conceding just one in their last three matches, the Blues have proved they are a very tough side to face at the moment. With that in mind, United will have to put in a good showing at Stamford Bridge. Without further ado, here’s when the game kicks off and how to watch it live on UK television.
