CHE vs MUN Dream11 prediction: Both the sides will aim to strengthen their claim for top-4 on Sunday. We take a look at Man Utd vs Chelsea Dream 11 fantasy tips.
Manchester United and Chelsea will locks horns in a significant clash for the top-4 race on Sunday afternoon.
While Chelsea has had a shaky few weeks, Manchester United’s form has simply been horrendous. Solskjaer side lost seven of their last 9 games across all competitions – this includes defeats in the FA Cup and the Champions League.
United is currently at sixth position in the league. Interestingly, they’re still alive in the race for the top-4 as Arsenal and Chelsea have been dropping points as well. With a win over Chelsea, Manchester United will level the Blues, and can even go ahead of Arsenal if they lose to Leicester City.
And so, without further ado, let’s jump straight into the Dream11 prediction and fantasy tips for the game between Manchester United and Chelsea.
CHE vs MUN Dream11 prediction:
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
David De Gea has been going through a rough patch at the moment. Even when Solskjaer stated in the pre-match conference on Friday that he will start the Spaniard on the goal, I put faith in the Chelsea goalkeeper for this game.
It is not because I undermine De Gea, but simply because Kepa has a reasonably better set of defence ahead of him. Manchester United conceded four against Everton at Goodison Park, and their defenders (bar Lindelof and to an extent Luke Shaw) have been hugely inconsistent this season.
Defence: David Luiz, Azpilicueta, Emerson, Lindelof, Shaw
David Luiz has been one of the side’s top performers against Manchester United and needs to step up as Chelsea faces one of their most important games of the season. Cesar Azpilicueta will be tasked with the role to keep the Manchester United wing in check, while Emerson’s pace also provides a brilliant option in the attack.
G Neville: “Some of them can improve with the right example in the changing room from the experienced leader-type players. They can improve and get better. We have seen that with Victor Lindelof this year. He has improved enormously.” #mufc [Sky]

Manchester United’s RB position has been one of their biggest weaknesses in the last few weeks and I expect Sarri to exploit that position with Emerson.
Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw have been the best defenders at Old Trafford this season. The latter is also an efficient attacker.
Midfield: Kante, Loftus-Cheek, Pogba
Both, Kante and Loftus-Cheek have been impressive for Chelsea over the last few weeks. I expect them to step up once again as they would aim to exploit Manchester United’s poor defence and form.
Paul Pogba has shown glimpses of his quality but failed to impact the game in almost every game he has played in many weeks. However, his abilities with the ball are no secret, and as Manchester United desperately needs to return to winning ways, Solskajer would pin his hope on Pogba to finally step up.

The arrival of Ander Herrera in the midfield could also be a big boost in the position and Pogba might finally be able to rediscover his lost form.
Forward: Hazard, Lukaku
I expect Romelu Lukaku to start in this game in a central position, following poor final movement from the likes of Lingard and Rashford. Lukaku could be the key to Manchester United attack in the game.
Eden Hazard goes in as an obvious choice for the side, as he could single-handedly turn the tide in Chelsea’s favour.
