Ian Wright states prediction for Chelsea v Man United

The former Arsenal striker is backing Chelsea to beat Manchester United on Sunday afternoon

Ian Wright is backing Chelsea to edge to a 2-1 victory over Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues have won their last two Premier League games without conceding a goal despite having failed to win a game in September.

Chelsea were 2-0 winners against promoted side Hull City thanks to goals from Diego Costa and Willian at the KCOM Stadium.

The west Londoners made it successive Premier League victories thanks to a 3-0 victory over defending champions Leicester City last weekend.

Diego Costa and Eden Hazard scored first-half goals as the Chelsea pair maintained their form ahead of their meeting with former manager Jose Mourinho.

United, on the other hand, have drawn their last two Premier League games following stalemates with Stoke City and Liverpool to leave the Red Devils two points behind fifth-placed Chelsea.

Former Arsenal legend Wright is backing the Blues to extend their lead to five points over the former Chelsea boss and his United side on Sunday afternoon.

“I think Jose Mourinho will play like he did against Liverpool. He will keep it tight. I am going to go Chelsea. I’ll have Chelsea 2-1,” Wright told The Sun Goals app.
