What to Know

This Sunday, Manchester United is hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 1.75 goals per contest. They and Chelsea are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 11:30 a.m. ET on Sunday at Stamford Bridge. Last year, the Red Devils and Chelsea were perfect equals, playing to 0-0 and 0-0 draws.

The matchup between Man United and Watford on Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Man United falling 4-1 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one.

Meanwhile, Chelsea kept a clean sheet against Leicester City on Saturday and took the game 3-0.

Chelsea's win lifted them to 9-1-2 (first place with 29 points) while Manchester United's defeat dropped them down to 5-5-2 (eighth place with 17 points). We'll see if Chelsea can repeat their recent success or if Man United bounces back and reverse their fortune.
