Chelsea host Manchester United in the Barclays Premier League this afternoon.
The match comes from Stamford Bridge and is one of two matches to be shown live on Sky Sports’ Super Sunday programme today.
While a change in manager has led to a small improvement for Chelsea, it hasn’t been big enough to see them rise up the table into a position that they have become accustomed to following the arrival of Roman Abramovich in 2003.
While United have fared much better, certainly in terms of results and league position, their is a growing sense of disquiet among the support at Old Trafford, leading to a lot of speculation surrounding the position of manager Louis van Gaal.
The Blues are unbeaten in their last nine league and cup games against Manchester United. The Red Devils have won just one Premier League game at Stamford Bridge since 2002 – a 3-2 victory in October 2012.
There have been four red cards shown in the last five Premier League games meetings at Stamford Bridge.
