Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel earlier this year, there has been a high level of improvement with the Blue contingent of West London, one that has produced the UEFA Champions league and the Super Cup. Needful to say that Chelsea have been a free scoring side and coupled with the addition of Romelu Lukaku, the European Champions have done just about enough to occupy top spot in the Premier league.
However, inspite of their recent successes, the Blues have had difficulty in subduing a particular big team in the top flight, one that they haven't scored a single Premier league goal against in the past two seasons.
In the last two campaigns, Chelsea have failed to find the back of the net against the Red Devils in the English Premier League.
Take a look at their previous four meetings;
1- Manchester United 4 vs 0 Chelsea (11 August 2019)
Two goals from Marcus Rashford coupled with strikes from Daniel James and Anthony Martial condemned Chelsea to a 4-0 demolition in the hands of Manchester United.
2- Chelsea 0 vs 2 Manchester United (17 February 2020)
Headers from Anthony Martial and Harry Maguire was the difference as United proved too strong for the Blues.
3- Manchester United 0 vs 0 Chelsea (24 October 2020)
Despite both sides seeing plenty of the ball, they were unable to break the deadlock as the points were shared.
4- Chelsea 0 vs 0 Manchester United (28 February 2021)
Another pulsating meeting ended in a stalemate at Stamford Bridge.
Needful to say that the Blues have not won Manchester United in the Premier league since 2017 and the last time they registered a top flight goal against them was in a 1-1 draw back in 2019, Marcus Alonso was the scorer for Chelsea in that game.
However, with both sides set to lock horns again on the 28th of next month at Stamford Bridge, will Chelsea finally be able to end their scoreless run against Manchester United.
