Limping along to the finish line before the arrival of Erik Ten Hag, the visit of Chelsea could only worse the mood even further.
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.
