Fourth vs First: Chelsea vs Man Utd
In round 18 of the English Premiership, defending champions Chelsea currently in fourth place on the table will face pacesetters Manchester United.
Man Utd are currently on top of the table after their win over Arsenal in round 17 and now have a chance to extend their lead at the top to five points with a win at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea had a brilliant start to the season with some 6-nil wins building up a huge goal difference but over the last month the team has failed to win a single league match.
A draw against Tottenham Hotspurs in their last match could have given them hope but the team needs to start winning matches to successfully defend the title.
Man United remain undefeated nearly halfway through the season and they would be desperate to avoid defeat against their title rivals.
