Manchester United will take on Chelsea in the Premier League clash between the two sides at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is at 4pm GMT. Live coverage is on Sky Sports 1 and Sky Sports 1 HD. Radio commentary of the match will be available on BBC Radio 5 Live. Catch the highlights of the game on Match of the Day 2 on BBC One and BBC One HD at 10:30pm GMT.


The clash on Sunday at Old Trafford will be United's first big game of the season. The last time these two sides met at the same venue saw the match end in a goalless draw and since then there have been several changes at both clubs, particularly at United.

The Red Devils come into the clash after they avoided defeat against West Bromwich Albion as Daley Blind's late striker helped Louis van Gaal's side seal a 2-2 draw. United made two errors and the Baggies punished the Old Trafford club by scoring on both occasions.

With Wayne Rooney suspended and Radamel Falcao doubtful, United will have a tough task ahead of them. Van Gaal would be looking for a win on Sunday and hoping the victory could kick-start the season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are enjoying a great run in the league and are unbeaten in all competitions. The Blues manager Jose Mourinho would be looking to extend his side's run when they make a trip to Old Trafford.

In the last fixture, the west London club registered a comfortable 6-0 victory over Maribor in the midweek Champions League clash. The major concern for visitors would be the fitness of star striker Diego Costa, while Loic Remy is out of the United clash with a groin injury.

What Managers Say

Louis van Gaal: "I'm [made] from a little bit of iron – so [I have] a shield, an iron shield. Maybe now you know that I am always a controversial person and a lot of media has written about that. We hardly speak to each other [at the moment]. Sometimes we SMS but when we see each other we feel the warmth between us and our families so that's nice. He [Mourinho] is an a very modest and emotional human being."

Jose Mourinho: "[On] Sunday we go to win. If you give me now one point without me going, I won't accept that. I want to fight for three points. But sometimes during a game a point is a positive result."
