This will be the fourth meeting between these two sides this season, and Manchester United have won all of the previous three – home and away in the Premier League by a 6-0 aggregate scoreline and a 2-1 triumph to knock the Blues out of the EFL Cup. Indeed, United are now unbeaten in their last six games against Chelsea across all competitions, stretching back to the FA Cup final between the two sides in 2018. Chelsea have won four of the last five FA Cup ties between these two clubs, but the overall record in this competition stands at nine wins for United compared to five for Chelsea.
