The race for the top four is nearing its boiling point as Manchester United is set to host Chelsea at the Theatre of Dreams in a very crucial match that could determine where each side would finish at the end of the season.

The host is on a wretched run of form that has seen them lose their last three matches consecutively and shipping in nine goals. In front of goal, the strikers have failed to hit the back of the net from open play in their last five matches. The Red Devils will need to up their game if they are to win against Chelsea today.

The visitors have always been hot and cold this season. Maurizio Sarri and his men enjoyed a bright start to the campaign but have failed to reproduce that form in the second half of the season. The Blues will need a win today if they are to finish in the top four in the EPL.
