Chelsea vs Man Utd Prediction: Premier League Match on 28.02.2021
Premier League football returns to our screens this weekend following the midweek excitement brought by the Champions League and Europa League. The schedule brings five games on Sunday with the standout fixture played in London where old rivals Chelsea and Manchester United clash from 16:30 GMT. You can follow this match live on television and an exciting 90 minutes is expected.
Chelsea enter looking for the win needed to keep themselves in the hunt for a top-four finish and place in next season’s Champions League. Man Utd must claim victory to keep alive their faint hopes of challenging neighbours Manchester City for the Premier League title. The last time these teams met they produced a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford back in October.
Chelsea held by Saints
Chelsea enter on a strong run of form and have thrown themselves back into contention for a top-four finish and place in next season’s Champions League. The London side started the week in fifth place having claimed 13 of the last 15 points available to them. They are involved in a race against the likes of West Ham, Leicester, Liverpool, and Everton for the top-four and that should make for an interesting finish to the campaign.
The Blues saw their recent winning ways end with a draw last weekend, held to a 1-1 at St Mary’s Stadium by a hard-working Southampton side. It was a game they were favourites to win but ended happy to get a share of the spoils. Minamino scored first for Southampton on 33 minutes and it took a penalty from Mount in the second half to get his men level. Despite dropping two points, confidence remains high in the home dressing room.
Man Utd must avoid defeat
Manchester United entered the season hoping for another top-four finish but went into this year with a chance of winning the league. They have since dropped off the furious pace set by champions in-waiting Manchester City who are already 10 points ahead and edging closer to claiming their title back from Liverpool this spring. United will now aim to end in second.
The visitors also enjoy an unbeaten run of form but have drawn three of their last five games. The 49 points on the board leaves them 10 behind Man City but level with Leicester City in third and six better than their hosts. Defeat at Stamford Bridge could derail their chances of finishing in the prize places and retaining their place at European football’s head table.
