Welcome to our Chelsea vs Manchester United preview prediction and head to head analysis. Chelsea are now 8 points clear of the relegation zone. They have now gone 8 matches without defeat. However there were 5 draws in those 8 matches, so they are still not back to their best. Manchester United are in 5th place. 3 wins 2 draws and a loss in their last 5 matches tells us that they are slightly inconsistent. The manager keeps chopping and changing the team / tactics and seemed to find one that worked very well last weekend. Will he stick to it or will he revert to experimentation again? Five points adrift of Champions League football next season, they need to start winning to close the gap.
