Chelsea host fellow Champions League hopefuls Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The Blues extended their unbeaten start to seven matches under Graham Potter but were held to a 0-0 draw against Brentford on Wednesday night. Manchester United, meanwhile, romped past Tottenham in what Erik ten Hag deemed to be his team's "best performance of the season".

Here's everything you need to know about the imminent meeting between this in-form pairing.

Chelsea team news

Conor Gallagher was led off the pitch during Chelsea's midweek stalemate after feeling ill - although, Potter was optimistic that "it's just a 24-hour thing".

None of N'Golo Kante (thigh), Wesley Fofana (knee) nor Reece James (knee) are expected to feature for Chelsea before the World Cup.

Man Utd team news

Cristiano Ronaldo will not be part of the squad on Saturday after storming off as an unused substitute before the full-time whistle against Spurs.

Anthony Martial hadn't returned to training prior to that victory on Wednesday night and remains a significant doubt for the trip to the capital.

Harry Maguire's return from a hamstring problem is imminent but Donny van de Beek and Brandon Williams are yet to resume training. Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Axel Tuanzebe are even further back in their recovery process.

Chelsea vs Man Utd score prediction

These members of the division's recent elite are separated by just one point after ten games. They've both won six matches, scored 15 goals and the previous four meetings between this duo have ended all square.

As in-form hosts, Chelsea are favourites coming into the contest but their streak of five consecutive clean sheets has been heavily reliant upon Kepa Arrizabalaga's unforeseen (and almost certainly unsustainable) rejuvenation.

If Ten Hag's side can replicate the calibre of performance they demonstrated against Spurs, Chelsea's parsimonious run may come to an end - though Potter's unbeaten start may not be halted just yet.

Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Man Utd
