Top of the table Chelsea host Manchester Unitedon Sunday evening in what looks like the Premier League’s showpiece event this weekend.
Both sides enjoyed victories in the Champions League earlier this week, although it is Chelsea who head into the game in more convincing form, with the 4-0 thumping of Juventus marking Thomas Tuchel’s 50th game in charge perfectly.
A solid defensive unit and a fearsome attack enjoying the success of the club’s academy graduates, they might not have easy a game as they would have done had Ole Gunnar Solskjær not been sacked.
Indeed, with United looking so devoid of ideas and easy to play against Manchester City and Liverpool recently, surely Michael Carrick will look to shut up shop to avoid further embarrassment in big games.
Date, kick-off time and venue
The Premier League game is scheduled for a 16.30pm GMT kick-off on Sunday November 28, 2021.
Stamford Bridge in London will host.

Chelsea vs Manchester United team news
While there is hope that Ben Chilwell can play for Chelsea again this season, the England international will not be available until the New Year at least as a result of knee ligament damage. N’Golo Kante twisted his knee and will miss the game.
For United, Harry Maguire is suspended but Luke Shaw, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood could all come back into the side.
Chelsea vs Manchester United prediction
While Chelsea will be strong favourites, it’s not hard to imagine United playing for a draw at best. Clearly, more needs to come from such a talented group of players but, right now, another big loss against an elite side would be a disaster.
