Manchester United v Chelsea Head to Head record

Manutd wins: 76
draws: 49
Chelsea Wins: 53

History shows the Reds are leading the head-to-head record comfortably, with 73 wins to Chelsea’s 52 from 178 meetings. The sides have drawn 53 times before and, prior to last season’s impressive victory, the previous three league meetings at Old Trafford had ended in draws.

Having scored three goals in Chelsea’s last two games,
Willian is in fine form heading into his 10th match against United. He put in an exceptional performance on Tuesday night, using his pace and strength against Barcelona. The Brazilian forward hit the woodwork twice in the first half before scoring with a brilliant low finish against the five-time European champions and the Reds defence will have to be alert to ensure he doesn’t score against United for the first time on Sunday.

Mourinho’s record v Chelsea:  The boss has had mixed results when coming up against his former club. During his Treble-winning season at Inter Milan in 2010, he beat the Blues in both legs of their UEFA Champions League round-of-16-tie. During his time as United manager, the Blues have won the sides’ three meetings at Stamford Bridge but the Reds prevailed 2-0 in the only encounter at Old Trafford last season.

Did you know? The Reds will hope to maintain their excellent defensive record of late, which has seen us keep nine clean sheets in the last 11 games in all competitions. United have also kept a total of 23 clean sheets overall this season, which is three more than any other Premier League team.

The Reds were without Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo, Daley Blind, Marouane Fellaini and Zlatan Ibrahimovic against Sevilla but were boosted by the return of Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford as substitutes on Wednesday night. However, the boss confirmed on Friday that Ander Herrera will be out for "a few weeks" after the midfielder sustained a recurrence of a muscle injury early on in midweek. Eric Bailly could also make his 50th appearance for the club and his first start since our last game against Chelsea on 5 November. For Chelsea, defender David Luiz and midfield duo Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko are out of Sunday's game but striker Alvaro Morata is available again.
