Jose Mourinho’s last return to the Bridge ended in a 4-0 humiliation but with United now enjoying an impressive run of form, that has seen them unbeaten in 10, there’s every chance the visitors can walk away from Monday’s game with a result.
They’ll have to do so without leading man Zlatan Ibhraimovic, however, who begins a three-match domestic ban for his recent elbow on Tyrone Mings.
As for Chelsea, Antonio Conte has a clean bill of health and is expected to field a strong XI against the visitors.
When is it?
Kick-off is 7.45pm on Monday, 13 March, at Stamford Bridge.

Where can I watch it?
BBC One will be broadcasting the game. Coverage starts at 7.30pm.
It’s a big game for…
Marcus Rashford. With Manchester United continuing to juggle the demands of Premier League, Europa League and FA Cup football, there’s every chance the young England star could feature against Chelsea. Whether he makes an appearance off the bench or starts for Mourinho, Rashford could have the chance to prove his worth once again. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic out through suspension, United need someone to step up to the big occasion. Can Rashford be that man?
Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 11 meetings with Manchester United in all competitions (W6 D5), last losing to them 3-2 in October 2012.
Player to watch…
Diego Costa. With three goals from his last three games, Chelsea’s Costa is a man enjoying another upturn in form. Having gone four games without a single goal to his name throughout February, the Spaniard is once again firing on all cylinders. Conte has hinted he would field a strong side against United so expect the forward to be in the mix for Monday night’s game.
