The Blues continued their unbeaten run under Thomas Tuchel with a 1-1 draw away to Southampton but fell down to fifth as a result, six points behind second-placed United who won their match last weekend. 
 
Chelsea are unbeaten in six league matches since Tuchel took over the reins from Frank Lamaprd but he is set to face his toughest test yet as Blues boss on Sunday, a few days after taking on Atletico Madrid in the Uefa Champions League. 
 
The Red Devils returned to winning form with a 3-1 victory over Newcastle United. The result kept United 10 points behind league leaders Manchester City and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says his team won't give up on their hopes of winning the Premier League this season just yet. 

"We've got to be there just in case," said Solskjaer. "Every time we get three points we've done our job and that's what we've got to do and see what other teams do."

"Momentum? Just keep going. You have to be relentless. The season is a strange one but you have to build on confidence. We have to recover well in between and I am sure they [the players] will because when you win games you get energy."

The two teams played to a 0-0 draw at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture. Chelsea haven't beaten United in the league since 2017 with the Red Devils having completed the 'double' over their rivals last season.
