  • Manchester United have not won at Stamford Bridge in the league since April 2002 when they secured a 3-0 victory courtesy of goals by Ruud van Nistelrooy, Paul Scholes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
  • Currently on loan at Sampdoria, Federico Macheda was the last Manchester United player to score for the Red Devils against Chelsea in the league.
  • Manchester United’s last league win over Chelsea came over two years ago, in January 2009, when Nemanja Vidic, Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov secured a 3-0 win at Old Trafford.
  • If Dimitar Berbatov scores on Tuesday he will notch his 20th league goal of the season, his previous best was 15 for Spurs in 2007-08.
  • Manchester’s United victory at Wigan was the first time this season they have won by more than one goal away from home in the league.
  • Of the 36 meetings between the two sides in Premier League history, Chelsea have won 12, United 10 with the sides sharing 14 draws.
  • Fernando Torres has yet to open his account for the Blues but has scored three goals for Liverpool against United.
  • Since taking over the club in 2003 Roman Abramovich has never witnessed a United victory at Stamford Bridge.
  • Chelsea have failed to score in their last two Premier League games, against Fulham and Liverpool.
  • Nicolas Anelka is the joint top scorer in the Champions League with seven goals (alongside Mario Gomez and Samuel Eto'o) but has scored only six in the Premier League.


LAST MEETING

August 8, 2010: Manchester United 3-1 Chelsea

The Red Devils opened the season in style with a comfortable Community Shield win at Wembley, with Antonio Valencia, Dimitar Berbatov and Javier Hernandez amongst the scorers.
