United v Chelsea: What's in the programme?

Wednesday 24 May 2023 18:30

Manchester United will be in action at Old Trafford this Thursday evening (25 May) to face Chelsea, in the Reds' penultimate Premier League match of the 2022/23 season.

Erik ten Hag's team need just one further point to secure a place in next season's Champions League, and are unbeaten at the Theatre of Dreams since September.

Of course, another home game also means another new issue of our beloved matchday programme, United Review.
UR is the only place to read Erik ten Hag's exclusive programme notes in full, and the Chelsea edition also includes an in-depth interview with Luke Shaw, one of this season's outstanding players, for your reading pleasure.

What else might you find within the programme's 84 pages?

Well, with Marcus Rashford spearheading United's attack for much of this season (and on the brink of becoming the first Red to reach 30 goals since Robin van Persie) we're taking a look at the finest goalscoring campaigns by Academy products. How do Rashy's 29 goals thus far compare with the best efforts of past legends like George Best, Bobby Charlton and Dennis Viollet?

There's also a sparkling feature on the 30th anniversary of our first Premier League title being secured in 1992/93, when Alex Ferguson and co memorably ended the club's 26-year wait for the top-flight championship.

There's plenty more, too. We take an extensive look at all things Chelsea, as former England cricket captain Alec Stewart reflects on a challenging season for his beloved Blues. Plus there's a deep dive into Alejandro Garnacho's stunning return from injury with that memorable late goal against Wolves.

Paddy Crerand's column brings its usual red-tinted fervour, while there's all the latest on United Women's accomplished season, which has them still in the hunt for a first Women's Super League title ahead of this weekend's finale.

We hear from our Berwick supporters' club as they celebrate their 30-year anniversary, and there's all the usual UR goodies: posters, quizzes and plenty of fun for the youngsters in our kids' section.
