It will be a furious and heated duel at Stamford Bridge as both sides renew their hostilities in what pundits regard as the match of the weekend.

They have secured four wins and two draws, including a back-to-back over Serie a giant, AC Milan, in the Champions League.

On the other hand, Manchester United have put up an impressive display in their last five matches, including a convincing win over Tottenham Hotspur after derby defeat at Etihad.
