The Red Devils come in to this game after a run of great form which has seen them beat Tottenham, Liverpool, and local rivals Manchester City to consolidate their position in the Champions League qualification places. Meanwhile the Blues have experienced a dip, only scraping past several lesser sides. They have beaten QPR, Hull City, and Stoke City by single goals recently.

Jose Mourinho’s side will also be without the injured Diego Costa. The striker has been out since aggravating a hamstring problem within minutes of coming on against Stoke on 4 April. The veteran Didier Drogba has come in for the 26-year-old here.

Were the London side to beat United they would take a ten point lead over Arsenal at the top of the table. With only six games left after this one this would leave any challengers for the championship without any real chance of overtaking them.
