Jamie Redknapp believes Chelsea and Manchester United would settle for a point from their Premier League clash on Sunday afternoon.

The west London side are looking to edge a step closer to the Premier League title with victory over their former manager Jose Mourinho and his Manchester United side at Old Trafford.

The Blues have won their last two Premier League games against Manchester City and Bournemouth to move to within five wins of the top-flight crown.

Chelsea are looking to win their second Premier League title in three seasons after Mourinho was sacked following their 2014-15 success.

Manchester United played out a 1-1 draw with Anderlecht in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final in Belgium on Thursday night.

The Red Devils have drawn two of their last three Premier League games before a 3-0 win against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light on Sunday.

Former Liverpool and Tottenham midfielder Redknapp hinted that Chelsea and Manchester United would settle for a point at Old Trafford this weekend.

“United are at home, they’re looking for one massive win, there will be no love lost between the players and Mourinho will be desperate to beat his old team,” Redknapp told Sky Sports.

“It will be interesting. If Chelsea can get through this one, I think we’ll be talking about the title being theirs. As for United, defeat wouldn’t cost them a top-four spot – there’s still a long way to go in that race and there are some more big games to come between the teams involved – but with the Manchester derby on Thursday 27 April, four points from those two matches would be a real boost.”
