Arsenal and Manchester City’s unstoppable form means that Chelsea remain under pressure to grind results. The Blues had a shaky start in the Premier League but they could now bag their fifth consecutive win. Since their shocking 2-0 loss away to Newcastle United in November 2013, they have also won eight out of 11 EPL matches.
Eden Hazard has netted nine league goals. Having been widely tipped to achieve Cristiano Ronaldo’s status at the highest level, the young Belgian star is expected to make more noise in the media by stealing the show at Stamford Bridge.
For Manchester United, the Top Four zone continues to be a land too far to reach. Even three points this Sunday will not suffice for the Red Devils to end Matchday 22 in fifth place. However, it will be an important step for them to regain confidence and salvage their image as champions.
Last Saturday, they recorded a morale-boosting win at home to Swansea City (their first victory in all competitions in 2014). Will David Moyes aka the ‘Chosen One’ triumph over Jose Mourinho? Even the great Sir Alex Ferguson struggled to beat the Portuguese manager.
Interestingly, Man United have picked more points away from home than at Old Trafford since the start of the 2013/14 English Premier League. The Red Devils are contemplating their seventh win as visitors but this will surely not come easy as the Blues are yet to go down at the Bridge. The Special One has led his side to nine wins and a draw in 10 home matches.
