Chelsea and Manchester United meet at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon with both sides harbouring top four aspirations.
The Red Devils are in the stronger position, going into the weekend six points ahead of their London rivals, although the Blues have won four of their last five Premier League fixtures.
They also have the benefit of an extra 48 hours rest, having last played in the Champions League on Tuesday night while Man Utd were in action on Thursday in the Europa League.
When the two sides met at Old Trafford in October, a drab goalless affair followed.
Man Utd's recent record against their traditional big six rivals – Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur – has been poor, with four of their last six games against them ending in 0-0 draws.
They have only scored one in that run, and that was during the 6-1 drubbing by Spurs.
What time is Chelsea vs Man Utd?
Sunday's standout fixture in West London will kick-off at 4.30pm.
Both sets of fans will also want to keep an eye on rivals Liverpool, who play Sunday's evening fixture away at relegation-threatened Sheffield United.

Chelsea vs Man Utd odds
Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel faces his sternest challenge yet in the Premier League as they welcome Man United to Stamford Bridge.
The Blues are favourites at 5/4 with Betfred but while United maybe a distant 12/5 going into the weekend we should not rule out Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team so quickly.
United are unbeaten in eight matches and have won their last three away visits to west London – although all three defeats happened under Frank Lampard.
Chelsea have not lost four consecutive home games in all competitions against an opponent since Watford between 1981 and 1986 so perhaps a draw might be worth considering at 23/10.
