Manchester United will host Chelsea on Thursday evening looking to confirm a spot in the Champions League next season.

United come into the game in fourth place with 69 points and have two games left until the end of the season.

Chelsea on the other hand are in 12th place with 43 points and are coming off a 1-0 defeat to champions Manchester City.

The reverse fixture ended in a 1-1 stalemate but there is lots more on the line for the red devils and they need to avoid defeat here.

The Blues have had a very disappointing season and cannot finish higher than 11th place, so it is mainly a pride affair for Frank Lampard’s side.

Liverpool are hot on Man United‘s heels in fifth place, three points behind them and still have the chance to finish in the EPL top four.

United already won the League Cup this season and can still add to their trophy cabinet if they can win the FA Cup against Manchester City.

Will the red devils get their first win against Chelsea since 2020 or can the Blues hold them off in this highly anticipated encounter?
