Ahead of this Saturday's midday clash between Chelsea and Man United, a victory from either side coming off of the international break for either manager could possible set the wind in their sails as both teams head into European football matches in their respectable competitions just 3-5 days after this game.

The Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is heading into this game with a 100 percent unbeaten record in the Premier League (W6, D2, L0), following His side's previous 3 nil win away at Southampton before the international break.

A win not only for Maurizio Sarri, but for the rest of his squad will set them in motion to maintain the pressure not only on an inform Manchester City side leading the chase in the Premier League. But, this will also continue to mount pressure on their northern rivals Liverpool (20pts, 3rd in the League) and their London rivals Arsenal (4th in the League) & Tottenham (5th in the League) who both share 18 points ahead of this weekend's 9th League game.

On the other hand, after Alexis Sanchez's last ditch 90th minute headed winner in their 3-2 victory against Newcastle in their last home game before the international break. Its safe to say that a positive surge in morale for the red half of Manchester,and the squad as a whole is clearly what they need if they are to provoke an unlikely upset against an inform Chelsea side as they travel to Stamford Bridge this weekend.

This Man United side currently sit in 8th place with 13 points (W4, D1, L3), a win for them away from home will most likely paper over the cracks in a side that could not only do with a revamp in their defensive situation. But also a full 180 degree turn in their current state of affairs starting at the top with the boardroom right down to performances in their youth teams.
