Fans will watch Man United vs. Chelsea live stream online and televised coverage of their 2015 English Premier League (EPL) matchup on Monday afternoon. Currently, Manchester United is amongst the top six teams in the league on the points table, and while Chelsea is far below them on the standings, they could conceivably make a run. They’ll need to start grabbing wins and points in order to make their way up the table, and that could start with a victory over top tier team Man U, which could see its last game under current boss Louis van Gaal. The latest 2015 EPL live streaming free and televised game coverage will come via NBC Sports networks on Monday afternoon.
According to Daily Mail in their Dec. 27 report, should United fall to their fifth straight loss, it could mean the end of the Louis van Gaal reign over the team. The Man United boss has been under fire for these recent issues with the squad and could conceivably quit or be released from his duties following another loss. Van Gaal was recently seen looking less than happy as he and his team checked into the team hotel on Sunday evening ahead of his club’s matchup with Chelsea.
The most recent defeat came at the hands of Stoke City 2-0 on Boxing Day. As of right now, the team is suffering its worst run since the 1961 campaign. Man United last won back on Nov. 21 against Watford. Van Gaal has let it be known that he may simply relieve himself of duties as team boss, telling the media “It is not always the club that has to sack me. Sometimes I do it by myself. I am the one who wants to speak first.” The 64-year-old has been boss of Man United since 2014 and is amongst the most decorated coaches in the sport, but the recent disappointments for fans could see the end of his short term after Monday.
