Chelsea were the team last to beat United in the league, with the home side playing 21 matches since, winning eleven and drawing ten, which is good form when you think United are undefeated in the league, but seems worse when you bring in the fact ten matches has been drawn. United need to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, still having a chance through the league, and in the UEFA Europa League, drawing 1-1 away to Anderlecht on Thursday evening. This Thursday will be the decider as to whether Jose Mourinho will retain two chances to the pinnacle European competition next season, or whether those chances will be gone, which could well be the case.
