Chelsea vs. Manchester United: Key Battles to Watch

Will Tidey@willtideySenior Manager, GlobalOctober 23, 2012

Two of the Premier League’s heaviest hitters come together on Sunday as table-toppers Chelsea entertain 19-time English champions Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.

Roberto Di Matteo’s Blues are unbeaten in eight league games and fresh off a dominant victory against London rivals Tottenham.

United enjoyed a 4-2 win against Stoke last time out in the Premier League, with Wayne Rooney scoring twice and Robin van Persie adding a goal of his own, and will be looking to close the four-point gap at the top.

Watch as Bleacher Report Lead Writers Will Tidey and Mike Cummings break down the key battles set to unfold at Stamford Bridge.
