Limping along to the finish line before the summer arrival of new manager Erik ten Hag, the visit of the Blues could only worsen the mood even further at Old Trafford.
While Thomas Tuchel’s side are barely in rip-roaring form themselves, they boast the kind of quality to hurt any team on their day and United’s rather lax defence could be in for a long night.
Although tonight’s game does not mean quite as much as previous meetings between these two, it remains one of the Premier League’s most iconic fixtures and a clash of two heavyweights.
