Manchester United don't go into many games at Old Trafford as the underdogs, but they may well be just that as they play host to Chelsea this Sunday afternoon.

Chelsea, however, have been quite formidable so far as Jose Mourinho's side have started this campaign in ruthless form.

United, on the other hand, have won just three of their opening eight league fixtures, and have already been dumped out of the Capital One Cup at the hands of League One outfit MK Dons.
