Chelsea v Manchester United live stream, Sky Sports, Sunday 28 February, 4.30pm GMT
Chelsea will be looking to climb into the top four of the Premier League table when they host Manchester United on Sunday.
Thomas Tuchel continues his fine start to life as Chelsea (opens in new tab) manager on Tuesday, as his new team beat Atletico Madrid (opens in new tab) 1-0 in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 tie. The German remains unbeaten since replacing Frank Lampard in the Stamford Bridge hot seat, having won four and drawn two of his six Premier League matches, as well as beating Barnsley in the FA Cup.
Tuchel has already put his stamp on the team. Chelsea line up in a 3-4-2-1 formation these days, with Callum Hudson-Odoi recast as a right wing-back and Marcos Alonso brought back in from the cold on the opposite flank. The Blues have kept four clean sheets in Tuchel’s four Premier League matches at the helm, and have moved to within one point of the Champions League qualification spots.
Manchester United (opens in new tab) are now 10 points adrift of top spot, leaving Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to focus on securing a top-four finish. The Red Devils look well placed to do exactly that, but defeat by Chelsea this weekend would see them sink closer to the chasing pack. United will draw confidence from their excellent away record: no team in the division has a better points-per-game record on the road this term.
Chelsea will be unable to call upon the services of Thiago Silva, but the experienced Brazil international is closing in on a return to full fitness. Tammy Abraham is fit again following an ankle injury, but Olivier Giroud could get the nod up front after his stunning goal against Atletico. Kai Havertz is also available again but will have to settle for a place on the bench.
United will have to make do without Paul Pogba, who is still a few weeks away from returning to action. Phil Jones is a long-term absentee, while Dan James, Scott McTominay, Edinson Cavani and Donny van de Beek are all doubts.
Kick-off is at 4.30pm GMT and the game is being shown on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League in the UK. See below for watching details where you are.

Use a VPN to watch a Chelsea v Manchester United live stream live stream from outside your country
If you’re on holiday or just simply out of the country, your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows exactly where you are from your IP address. Your access to the game will be automatically blocked, which is annoying if you’ve paid a subscription fee and don't want to use an illegal, buffering stream that makes you miss another Jose Mourinho tantrum. And that's where we recommend ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) (more on which below).
All you need to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN) to get beyond such aggravations (assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs). A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, meaning suppliers can’t work out where you are and what you’re doing. The info going to and from is entirely encrypted.
There are plenty of options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar (opens in new tab) love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
