Jamie Redknapp is backing Chelsea to beat Manchester United in Sunday’s crunch Premier League clash at Old Trafford.

Chelsea head into the game having seen their lead at the top of the table slashed down to four points following Tottenham’s win over Bournemouth at White Hart Lane on Saturday.

The Blues are currently leading the way at the top of the Premier League table after a brilliant start to the campaign under new boss Antonio Conte.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are fifth and locked in a battle to secure a top-four finish in Jose Mourinho’s first season at the club.

Chelsea have already beaten Manchester United twice at Stamford Bridge this season, in both the FA Cup quarter-finals and the Premier League.

And Redknapp is backing Chelsea to beat the Red Devils again on Sunday afternoon.

Speaking on Soccer AM on Saturday morning, Redknapp said: “I tend to agree with that [Chelsea will win]. I do fancy Chelsea tomorrow.”
