Chelsea’s Premier League dominance over Manchester United on the line


By Brian Sears

16 December 2010

It’s official and it’s demonstrable and it’s enough to leaving a Red feeling Blue: Chelsea are Manchester United’s toughest opponents in the Premier League. United of course have the chance to change the momentum in that relationship this weekend, with themselves on the up, apparently, and unbeaten, certainly, while Chelsea struggle for wins after a storming start.

In 712 Premier League games to date, United have gained 1,528 points, allowing opponents a measly 454 collectively. (Full details below in table).

Chelsea have collected 50 of those points from 36 games; indeed Chelsea have gained more points from United than United have from them: 50-44, thanks most recently to a Blue double last season. Chelsea also achieved that feat in 1993-94 and 2004-05.
