Jose Mourinho's Chelsea entertain Manchester United this afternoon in a game which could see the Premier League champions go just three points off the Champions League places depending on other results.

Chelsea are currently third in the table, but with Arsenal and Manchester City winning yesterday the Blues will feel they need to win to keep up with the leaders.

A loss would leave Chelsea five points off the top.

Manchester United who sit in seventh have had an inconsistent season so far - but have been quietly creeping up the table however a loss today will see them 14 points behind Arsenal.

The two sides played out a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford earlier in the season and will be hoping for a better result today.

Mourinho is looking for his 100th Premier League win as Chelsea manager but will have to improve on last season's match where United came away with a 3-2 victory at the Bridge.

David Moyes' men have won 30 times at Stamford Bridge and are unbeaten in seven away games, winning five and drawing two.

Chelsea are unbeaten in six games and have only conceded two goals within that time.

New Chelsea signing Nemanja Matic is set to be handed a place on the substitutes' bench.

The Red Devils come into the game on the back of a 2-0 win against Swansea and will take confidence from recent form.

Moyes will need an inspired effort from his players if they are going to challenge for the title but a result away at Chelsea could be the kick-start they need.
