David de Gea still has no clean sheets at Stamford Bridge in seven appearances. He has conceded 15 goals. In contrast, Nemanja Matic is unbeaten in his career against Manchester United. He has faced them eight times – six times for Chelsea and twice for Benfica in 2011.
Gary Cahill is unbeaten in his last eight against Manchester United, having failed to win in his first 11. It was his second career goal against them – the first was in Chelsea’s 5-4 League Cup home win four years ago.
Eden Hazard scored his fourth goal in 11 career appearances against United and N’Golo Kante scored his first Chelsea goal and only his second in the Premier League.

Pedro marked his 50th Chelsea appearance with a goal in 30 seconds – and according to our research it was the second-quickest Premier League goal against Manchester United. The quickest was Gus Poyet at the same end in 1999 on a Sunday afternoon. Pedro’s goal was scored at the Matthew Harding Stand, which was fitting on the day Chelsea marked the 20th anniversary of his tragic death.
