What a long Winter Break that was! It was an eventful one after drawing to Leicester where Rüdiger scored two goals (from set-pieces) to now, the latest news being Chelsea have signed Ajax player, Hakim Ziyech. The Morrocan will end the season there and then move to Chelsea for a transfer fee rising up to £36.7m. In the mix, Academy product Billy Gilmour has now been officially promoted to The Blue's first team. This game is an important one for Chelsea, as the next game after is Spurs. A loss puts pressure on the next game as a loss in that game means we could drop to as far down as 8th position in 2 games. Man United, on the other hand, will be looking to revive their form after not winning a single of their last 3 games in the Premier League. Chelsea would be very happy to hear the Rashford and Pogba are out for the game. Rashford has scored 14 goals this season which is one more than Tammy Abraham. Tammy will be looking to get back on form and equal the number of goals Rashford has scored if he is in contention for the match. Martial has proven to be very threatening against the Blues on countless occasions in recent times. He has scored 3 Goals and an Assist in 5 games against Chelsea. The Midfielder has scored 12 Goals and 3 Assists in all competitions this season. Chelsea will need to approach the game differently compared to their last previous two encounters against United this season, of which both games resulted in a loss. The key this time around, of course, will be to avoid the defensive mistakes from those previous games, whilst focussing on breaking down United's stubborn defence. James and Hudson-Odoi will be key down the right-hand side to stretch the left side of United's defence to make space for Tammy and Willian between the lines. Chelsea will again look to dominate in midfield whilst holding United off on the counter.
Team News: 
Christian Pulisic is not fit but is building up his fitness. Ruben is not available but is getting closer to selection. Tammy will be assessed before the game. Predicted lineup: (4-3-3) Kepa, James, Rudiger, Christensen, Azpilicueta, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Hudson-Odoi, Willian, Abraham. Score Prediction: Chelsea 2 - 0 Manchester United
