Chelsea fans reveal pre-match thoughts ahead of massive game at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea will welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge in Sunday afternoon’s pulsating Premier League fixture.

Fourth-placed Chelsea are four points behind second-placed United ahead of their meeting in the English capital, which promises to be a fascinating affair.

The Blues have actually won their last two in the league against Watford and Bournemouth, but suffered a 3-0 defeat at Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night, and it would be fair to say that the team is currently short on confidence.

Chelsea could be 12 points off the top of the table by the time that they take to the field on Sunday, and defeat to United might well see their title challenge end.

On Sunday morning, Chelsea’s official Twitter account posted a countdown to kickoff in a bid to rally the support ahead of the clash at Stamford Bridge.

As expected, a number of the club’s supporters engaged with the tweet, and many were quick to remind the players of just what today’s match means.

It is a game that Chelsea dare not lose as the pressure builds on head coach Antonio Conte, but United boss Jose Mourinho will be desperate to get one over on his former club.
