Welcome to our Manchester United vs Chelsea predictions, head to head, preview and team news. Manchester United lie in 6th place with 12 points and already only their most stout hearted fans would see them as title contenders this season. But they have won all three home matches this season, following the debacle on the first match of the season where they lost at home to Swansea. Chelsea are sitting at the top of the league a full 5 points clear of their nearest rival. How will Chelsea cope without Diego Costa is the question that has to be asked? They did very well without him mid-week against Maribor in the Champions League, but this is a different kettle of fish entirely.
