The match kicks off at 8pm and is being broadcast by Sky Sports in the UK.

United begin this evening down in ninth position in the table, six points off Chelsea in fourth.

A victory could take us into seventh, cutting Chelsea’s points advantage in half, and a draw would place us in eighth.

An earlier win at Stamford Bridge gives United belief, although the star of the show that day was Marcus Rashford, who is unavailable through injury.
