Unfortunately, United are, once again, going through a lean patch, while Chelsea have also not been promising.

United are coming off a 0-2 loss to arch-rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford. They have now lost three league matches out of five.

However, Chelsea too failed to earn full points as they were held 2-2 by Burnley at home, jeopardizing their hopes of top-four finish.

From Chelsea, Eden Hazard has been doing great. He will hope to guide Chelsea to an away win tomorrow.

Interestingly, both Pogba and Hazard have been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
