Manchester United host Chelsea on Thursday night hoping to avoid a third successive English Premier League defeat.

If there ever was a time for Manchester United to get a win it is now and they have an uphill task as they travel to London to face Tottenham Hotspur.

The Red Devils suffered a 5-0 home loss to their bitter rivals in the Premier League last Sunday, while Spurs were also beaten on the same afternoon, going down 1-0 at the home of West Ham United.

Spurs have found it difficult to show consistency this term and the same can be said of star-studded Manchester United.

The home side are in sixth place on the table with 15 points, one ahead of seventh-place United, who are without a win in four league games.

Spurs have only won one of their last five Premier League games against Man United.

Man United lost their long unbeaten away league record against Leicester on October 16 but need to avoid defeat if they are to maintain a fighting chance for silverware this season.
