What's our prediction?

After beating Atletico Madrid in midweek, confidence will be high as Chelsea welcome second-placed United to Stamford Bridge but Tuchel is well aware that the next five games could define their season.

After all the hard work to claw themselves back into the top-four race, having slipped to ninth under Tuchel's sacked predecessor Frank Lampard, Chelsea can ill afford any dip in form now.
