Two stumbling giants of the Premier League will clash swords as Chelsea hosts Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Thursday evening.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Betting Tips: X2 (Double chance)

Just before the two-week hiatus due to international duties, it seemed like the Blues had found their groove, but that feeling was short-lived as Stamford Bridge faithful watched their club squander a lead twice, ultimately forced to settle for a share of the spoils in a frustrating 2-2 stalemate against 10-man Burnley.

Undoubtedly, the meager point against a relegation-battling side was quite surprising, as Mauricio Pochettino's quad posted two scintillating back-to-back displays, first defeating Newcastle in a five-goal thriller on Premier League's matchday 28, and then six days later securing a spot in the FA Cup semifinals by ousting Lecester City in a remerkable 4-2 victory.

The notion of earning a European ticket through the league seems like an unattainable dream, given they sit a distant 16 points behind the fifth-placed Spurs with seven left rounds to play, though holding one game in hand, leaving them with no choice but to go all-in for the FA Cup semi-final clash set for April 20 against Manchester City, hoping to put an end to their two-year trophy drought.

Ignoring their late extra-time loss to Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final, Chelsea have been efficient in picking up positive results of late, winning five and drawing three times in any format since enduring a 2-4 humilation against Wolves on February 2, but the upcoming clash on Thursday sparks slight nervousness among Stamford Bridge's supporters.

Solely focusing on the Premier League head-to-heads between the pair, Chelsea have failed to come out on the right side of the scoreline in any of their previous 12 league meetings with Manchester United (D7, L5), with one of those defeats coming in the December reverse fixture when Scott McTominay dealt them a brace blow at Old Trafford.

From the Red Devils' viewpoint, they failed to build on their unforgettable extra-time seven-goal success against Liverpool in the FA Cup last-eight clash, but they should be overjoyed to have at least get a point in a tense 1-1 draw at the Gtech Community Stadium, especially considering Brentford bombarded Onana's goal with a whopping 31 shots.

After enduring a heartbreaking late equalizer in the ninth minute of added time, Man Utd remains in an 11-point deficit behind fourth-placed Aston Villa, despite having a game in hand, compelling Dutch strategist Erik ten Hag to urgently steer his squad back towards the path of triumph to keep their Champions League hopes aflame.

Looking on the bright side, the Red Devils have been quite good on their travels in 2024, claiming victories in six out of eight away trips across all fronts, barring the 1-3 debacle in the Manchester derby against City. Considering both Chelsea and Man Utd's inconsistent form throughout the season, an exhilarating share of points seems like the most plausible outcome as they lock horns.

Chelsea team news

Injuries continue to plague The Blues as they navigate without the services of Robert Sanchez, Wesley Fofana, Reece James, Romeo Lavia, Lesley Ugochukwu, and the highly-touted Christopher Nkunku, all set to miss out.

The 20-year-old right-back Malo Gusto limped off the pitch with hamstring discomfort during the 2-2 draw against Burnley over the weekend, and he will be assessed ahead of the midweek showdown, while Levi Colwill edges closer to a return from his toe injury.

Manchester United team news

Unlike Chelsea, the Red Devils have fewer players on the sidelines, but four from the backline such as Victor Lindelof, Jonny Evans, Luke Shaw, and Tyrell Malacia are confirmed to be out due to injury concerns.

Adding to the defensive injury concerns, the experienced French center-back Raphael Varane remains in doubt after being substituted early in the second half during the 1-1 draw against Brentford.
