After another tough week the pressure is intense on Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag.

- Chelsea have won just five of their last 20 Premier League trips
- Five of the last eight midweek league meetings between these two have finished level
- Recommended bet: Tie with goals

Two of the Premier League's biggest underachievers meet on Wednesday night, with Manchester United reeling from a bad run of form. 

Chelsea sit 10th in the league table despite their spending spree and a decent run of form. However, the Blues have still looked shaky and ill-disciplined in that spell, which could hurt them at Old Trafford. 

Team news

Both sides are ravaged by injuries, with eight players set to miss out on both sides. United are missing defenders, with Lisandro Martinez, Tyrell Malacia and Jonny Evans out. Jadon Sancho remains out of favour, while ex-Chelsea man Mason Mount is injured.

Amad Diallo, Casemiro and Christian Eriksen complete the injury list for United.

For Chelsea, Conor Gallagher is suspended, while Malo Gusto is a doubt. The Blues will be without Romeo Lavia and Christopher Nkunku, with the pair still awaiting their debuts.

Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell, Carney Chukwuemeka and Trevoh Chalobah complete Chelsea's absentee list. 

The stats

Manchester United are unbeaten across their last 11 league meetings with Chelsea, although seven have finished level. 

The Blues haven't won at Old Trafford in the league since May 2013.

This clash has finished level more often than any other Premier League fixture, with 26 draws shared between the pair.

Of those 26 tied games, 19 of them have been score draws.

Chelsea have seen both teams score in six of their last seven league matches, including their last four.

Man United have conceded in five of their last seven home games in all competitions.

Mauricio Pochettino will be aiming to lead Chelsea to a first Old Trafford win in a decade.

Chelsea head into this game having won three of their last five, suffering one defeat in that run. However, their one loss was a hammering at Newcastle, while they've seen 25 goals scored in that run.

The Blues simply can't be trusted defensively, but then Manchester United's backline has been decimated by injuries. The Red Devils were beaten 1-0 at Newcastle on Saturday, but they easily could have been given the thumping that Chelsea received.

That leaves these two sides struggling to perform well, while neither team are really keeping clean sheets. The Blues are three places and five points shy of United, but crucially the visitors sit 10th in the table.

United have failed to gain a point against any top-half side this term, suffering five defeats. Better quality teams tend to give them problems, while the Blues raise their game when it comes to meeting big sides.

Chelsea have picked up draws with Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City this term, with both teams scoring in each. With both sides struggling for form and for clean sheets, back another draw between the pair with both teams scoring.
