A trip to Old Trafford awaits Chelsea this Sunday, but what do the record and form books tell us to expect?

Here at Vital Chelsea we`ve delved into the record and form books and come up with a raft of facts that may interest you:

? The recent meetings between the two sides have certainly favoured Chelsea with the Blues, in the last 14 meetings, in all competitions, between the two clubs, having won 8, draw 5 and lost just 1, that solitary defeat coming in the Premier League game at Old Trafford last season.

? Manchester United have lost more games against Chelsea than any other Premier League side with the current statistics showing United have lost on 18 occasions whilst also conceding 67 goals.

? The last time a league meeting between these two sides saw the away side win was back in May 2013 when Chelsea won 1-0 at Old Trafford.

? Chelsea`s last 4 visits to Old Trafford, in the Premier League, have seen the Blues score just the 1 goal, courtesy of Didier Drogba back in October 2014 with the game ending 1-1.

? Chelsea`s recent away form is nothing to write home about, the last 9 fixtures have yielded just 2 wins, 3 losses and 4 draws.

? Antonio Conte has gone head-to-head with Jose Mourinho, as a manager, on 5 occasions, winning 3, drawing 1 and losing 1.

? Pedro could be an unlikely candidate to become a hero in this fixture, the Spaniard has scored 7 goals against Jose Mourinho managed sides, a record that`s only bettered by the legend that is Lionel Messi who has scored 11.

? Eden Hazard enters the fixture having scored 6 goals in his last 6 Premier League fixtures.

Up the Chels!
