However, the clash comes at a time United are undergoing radical changes after the recent sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Red Devils' current form is in complete contrast to that of Chelsea who boast of the tightest defence in the Premier League.

Thomas Tuchel's men have conceded just four times in 12 outings so far this season and will be looking to continue with the fine run of form.

Man United record over Chelsea

However, United will be buoyed by their incredible head-to-head record over their London rivals as Michael Carrick, who was named the side's caretaker boss hunt for his second win since taking charge.

Chelsea are yet to win in seven meetings against the Old Trafford dwellers who have kept a clean sheet in their past four clashes against the Londoners.

What's more? United have actually won three of their previous trips to Stamford Bridge.

Ronaldo's Chelsea record

Be that as it may, Cristiano Ronaldo, who is expected to lead United's attack will be wary of his own record against the Pensioners.

Despite his incredible goalscoring prowess, the Portuguese talisman is yet to score a goal against Chelsea in the Premier League.

Ronaldo's only goal against the Blue side of London came during the Champions League final back in 2008 at Luzhniki Stadium.

Interestingly, Chelsea are the side the forward has also faced the most without scoring against in topflight football.
