John Barnes states his prediction for Chelsea v Man United

John Barnes looks ahead to Chelsea's Premier League showdown with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge

John Barnes is tipping Manchester United to hold Chelsea to a 1-1 at Stamford Bridge in Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash.

The Blues head into the game looking to return to winning ways after being held to a frustrating goalless draw by Watford in midweek.

United, meanwhile, produced a much-improved performance as they comfortably beat Stoke City 3-0 at Old Trafford to keep themselves within five points of the top four.

Chelsea are currently 13th in the Premier League table but have shown signs of improvement under Guus Hiddink and are unbeaten in their last 10 games in all competitions.

And former Liverpool and England winger Barnes feels that Sunday’s game is likely to turn out to be a cagey affair, and is predicting a 1-1 draw in west London.

Writing in his column for Titanbet, Barnes said: “A big game to end the weekend, and I think it will be a very tight contest.

“Both sides can keep it tight, so I don’t see too many goals coming. Goal-scorers – Anthony Martial and Eden Hazard.”
