We’re just hours away from kickoff now- Manchester United hosting Chelsea in what is the blockbuster fixture of the Premier League opening’s weekend. United and Chelsea enter this season with very similar prospects/outlook for the league title.

The odds makers see Manchester City as the favorites, followed by Liverpool. Then there’s a slight drop-off to Totttenham Hotspur, with another, substantial drop down to the next three sides, the aforementioned Chelsea and United, as well as Arsenal. Those three teams have pretty much the same odds of winning the title, according to most sports books.

So this game on Sunday will be big for top four positioning. It’s never too early, because every game counts.

Above you’ll find video of the news conference that United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did with the media ahead of this massive clash. The Chelsea debut of Christian Pulisic, and the fact that it’s coming at the Theatre of Dreams of all places, is a massive storyline in and of itself.

And below you’ll find more preview resources for the match tomorrow.
