In the English Premier League, Manchester United will play against Chelsea at Old Trafford. This match will be massive for both the Blues and the Red Devils as it will be detrimental in deciding which team finishes in the top 4.

Manchester United have looked woeful in recent weeks and the team has now 6 of their last 8 games. The Red Devils played midweek and were beaten comfortably by Manchester City. While the result was expected, Manchester United lacked any fight as they had only 36% of the possession and took only 1 shot on target. The likes of Paul Pogba and David De Gea look desperate to leave the club and the morale of the players is very low.

Chelsea, on the other hand, are not looking any better. The Blues only managed a 2-2 draw against Burnley in their previous week. Chelsea have not won in their last 2 Premier League games and this side also looks like they have lost interest in winning for the club. Eden Hazard has been very keen to leave for Real Madrid and many other players are looking for other clubs to join over the summer. To make matters worse, Chelsea are looking at bans in regards to transfers. The moral of Chelsea is also low as they enter this match.

Chelsea and Manchester United played each other earlier in the season at Stamford Bridge in a match that ended as a 2-2 draw. These two teams also met in the FA Cup where Manchester United won.

Both Manchester United and Chelsea enter this in poor form. Neither side look motivated and both clubs are looking at major changes during the summer. I am going to predict that this match is going to end as a draw. Both teams are evenly matched and neither Manchester United nor Chelsea will look to play with aggression and risk losing. I see this match ending as a conservative draw.

Pick:
Manchester United
