Although they are stranded at the ninth place, Manchester United have had the upper hand against Chelsea this season. The Red Devils defeated The Blues 4-0 in the Premier League fixture held in August 2019. Then United came out as victors once again in the EFL Cup fixture, defeating Chelsea 2-1.

Chelsea remain in pole position for fourth place despite a run of four wins in their last 13 league games.

The Blues' lead over Tottenham could be down to a single point, though, by the time they entertain Manchester United on Monday if Spurs win at Aston Villa on Sunday.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard claimed that Tottenham and Manchester United's January transfer spending meant his side are now "underdogs" to hold onto fourth.

However, victory over United on Monday at Stamford Bridge would give Chelsea a nine-point cushion over the Red Devils.

The visitors could give a debut to new striker Odion Ighalo, even though the Nigerian has been denied the opportunity to train with his new teammates due to fears over the coronavirus.

Ighalo is on loan from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua and did not travel to United's warm weather training camp in Spain due to fears he would be denied re-entry to the United Kingdom if restrictions on travellers who had been in China within the past two weeks were tightened.

The 30-year-old has even been training away from United's training ground in Manchester until completing a 14-day quarantine period.
