Over the years, Chelsea has proven to be one of the biggest teams within and outside of England. Except for Old Ham Athletics, there's no club the Blues haven't won in the top flight since the inception of the Premier league in 1992. However, in the last couple of seasons, Chelsea have had difficulty in defeating a particular top team in the Premier league and this has been the case for the past three campaigns.
Here in this article, I will be sharing with you the only top team Chelsea hasn't defeated in the Premier league since 2017.
The rivalry between Chelsea and Manchester United cannot be overemphasized as both teams have always been about outdoing each other. Statistically, the Blues and the Red Devils have met fifty eight (58) times in the Premier league since 1992 and those encounters have produced 18 wins for Chelsea, 17 wins for Manchester United and 23 draws.
However, despite Chelsea's high winning ratio, they have been unable to defeat the Red Devils in the Premier league since November 2017 when Alvaro Morata headed home in the 55th minute to give them a 1-0 victory at Stamford Bridge.

Take a look at their Statistics since then;
1- Manchester 2 vs 1 Chelsea (25 February 2018)
2- Chelsea 2 vs 2 Manchester United (20 October 2018
3- Manchester United 1 vs 1 Chelsea (28 April 2019
4- Manchester United 4 vs 0 Chelsea (11 August 2019)
5- Chelsea 0 vs 2 Manchester United (17 February 2020)
6- Manchester United 0 vs 0 Chelsea (24 October 2020)
7- Chelsea 0 vs 0 Manchester United (28 February 2021)
The above statistics reveals that not only have Chelsea not won Manchester United in their last seven Premier league meetings, they haven't scored a Premier league goal against them since April 2019 and in that period the Red Devils have beaten them thrice.
In light of the above, Chelsea will be hoping to score and win Manchester United in the Premier league for the first time since 2017 when the two sides meet at Stamford Bridge in two months time.
