Manchester United are unbeaten in four Barclays Premier League meetings with Chelsea (W3 D1), their best run against them since December 1998 (five).
Sir Alex Ferguson's side have lost more games (13) and conceded more goals (55) against Chelsea than versus any other side in the Premier League.
Javier Hernandez has scored in six of his last eight meetings with Chelsea in all competitions.
After a run of 10 competitive games without a goal for Manchester United, Premier League top scorer Robin van Persie has netted six in his last four.
Man Utd have scored in 66 successive home games, a Premier League record.
The last six clashes between the Red Devils and the Blues in all competitions have seen 29 goals scored at an average of 4.8 goals per game.
The Blues have only managed one clean sheet in their last 17 league trips to Old Trafford (3-0 in December 2001).
The Blues have scored 15 headed goals this league season, the most in the Premier League.
With Chelsea having a Champions League spot to play for and Manchester United having long since wrapped up the title, this may seem like a foregone conclusion. However, the same could have been said of the Red Devils' game against Arsenal and Sir Alex's men eventually mustered up the enthusiasm to claim a point there - the same outcome is eminently possible in this fixture.
