EPL Preview: Chelsea To Face Manchester United In Crucial Clash
A season-defining clash is on the cards on Sunday as Chelsea take a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in a crunch Premier League clash.
While Chelsea will be keen to maintain their advantage at the top of the table, the realistic target for United will be to give their top-four finish a big boost with a win over high-flying Blues.
The Super Sunday clash will be the third meeting between United and Chelsea this season and the Blues have smiled in the earlier two games.
Though the Blues again look like firm favourites for at least a draw at Old Trafford, it will be suicidal to completely rule out Jose Mourinho’s men.
The Europa League remains top priority for United considering they look to be in pole position against the Belgians next Thursday but as a place in the Premier League’s top four is still mathematically possible, Mourinho will go into this fixture with a strong line-up.
Nigerian international, Victor Moses is expected to star in this one especially after registering an above impressive performance in his comeback game last weekend.
In other games, Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho will be hoping to get a look in from Pep Guardiola as Manchester city play away to Southampton.
Victor Anichebe and his Sunderland teammates have another chance to give their slim survival hopes a lift as they will be hosting West Ham at the Stadium of Light.
Sunderland have lost six and drawn just one of their previous seven matches to sit 10 points behind Hull at the foot of the table.
Another game with Nigerian interest is Watford versus Swansea City where Isaac Success will be hoping to keep his starter’s shirt having been accorded that role in the last game against Tottenham Hotspur.
