Man United welcome Chelsea at Old Trafford for 57 Premier League meetings on Saturday, October 24 by 17:30pm.
United and Chelsea finished third and fourth respectively last season, but neither Ole Gunnar Solskjaer nor Frank Lampard will be entirely happy with their starts to the new campaign.
The Red Devils appear to be on the right path with recent wins against Newcastle (4-1) and PSG (2-1), but a 6-1 home humbling against Tottenham set alarm bells ringing for the club.
As for Chelsea, Lampard spent big in the summer transfer window but the defence has yet to convince – though a goalless stalemate against Sevilla in the UEFA Champions League group match was a step in the right direction.
Manchester United vs Chelsea Kick Off Time
Manchester United vs Chelsea is scheduled for a 5:30pm BST (17:30pm GMT) kicks off on Saturday, October 24, 2020, at the Old Trafford stadium (Manchester).

Eric Bailly is unavailable after being ruled out for four weeks, while Anthony Martial is still suspended after his red card against Spurs.
Harry Maguire missed United’s a 2-1 win over PSG in the Champions League at Paris, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could persist with a back three of Axel Tuanzebe, Wan-Bissaka, and Alex Telles – especially as Phil Jones is not in Solskjaer’s Premier League squad.
Edinson Cavani could be in contention along with Mason Greenwood, while Jesse Lingard is a doubt.
Lampard sounded confident following Chelsea’s draw with Sevilla that Thiago Silva will be fit after picking up a knock in that game.
