Things we noticed against Chelsea
REDS EXTEND RECORD
United are now unbeaten in our last 11 Premier League games against the Blues, winning four and drawing seven. The Reds had never gone 11 matches without defeat in the league against the Londoners in our league history until today.
According to Opta, since the start of last season, the Blues have won none of their 16 Premier League games against sides starting the day above them in the table (D4 L12), losing each of their last four. They’ve lost 16 Premier League games this term, only losing more in 1993-94 losing 17 in a 42-game season.
BACK AMONG EUROPE’S ELITE
United only needed a point to see off fifth-placed Liverpool and secure a place in the top four and Champions League football next season, but picked up all three after dispatching Chelsea. The Reds have now moved up into third place in the league table, above Newcastle United, who are two points behind United going into the final weekend of the season.
United entertain Fulham, with Newcastle away to Chelsea.
Tten Hag has now become just the third Dutch manager to finish in the top four of the Premier League, with the other two (Guus Hiddink and Louis van Gaal) also doing so in their debut campaigns.
