Sunday’s Premier League action from Stamford Bridge sees champions Chelsea take on Manchester United with both sides looking to keep touch with leaders Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola’s side could be as many as eight points clear at the top of the table by the time this game kicks off with the leaders taking on fifth place Arsenal earlier in the day.

Antonio Conte’s men were beaten 3-0 by Roma on Tuesday evening bringing to an end a four game unbeaten run that began with a 3-3 draw against the same opposition last month.

They edged past Bournemouth last time out in the league to keep themselves in the top four and a win here would see them close the gap between themselves and the Red Devils to just a point.

N’Golo Kante and Gary Cahill are set to return to the Blues’ squad though Victor Moses remains out injured.

Alvaro Morata is priced at 5.0 (4/1) to open the scoring with a variety of firms ahead of 7.0 (6/1) chance Eden Hazard.

The home win is 2.45 (29/20) with Paddy Power with the visitors as highly priced as the 3.20 (11/5) on offer from a number of bookmakers. The draw is widely available at 3.25 (9/4).

Jose Mourinho’s side edged past Tottenham Hotspur last time out in the league to keep to within five points of their neighbours at the top of the table and followed that victory with another against Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday evening.

Jesse Lingard will miss this game after hurting his back midweek though Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young are set to return after being rested.

Top scorer Romelu Lukaku is 5.2 (21/5) to get the first goal of the game with Unibet with Antony Martial priced at 8.0 (7/1) with the same firm.

Chelsea beat United twice at the Bridge last season, first in the league to the tune of a 4-0 victory before securing a 1-0 win in the FA Cup five months later and you can back a home win to nil this time around at 4.0 (3/1) with Sky Bet.
