despite not always performing at their best, Manchester United are unbeaten in the Premier League for a remarkable 28 games, stretching back to last April when Chelsea came to Old Trafford and secured a vital victory in the race for the title.

The two teams are set to meet again on March 1 -- after their December fixture was postponed due to bad weather -- by which time United could be almost a year unbeaten in the league and, as well as being the last team to beat them, Carlo Ancelotti's men are the only ones who haven't had the chance to beat them since.

In that period, Alex Ferguson's team have played every other one of the other 18 Premier League teams with Tottenham, Sunderland and Stoke each having the opportunity to end their unbeaten run on three occasions, yet, despite some close calls, particularly at home, they have failed to do so. Manchester City, Blackburn, West Brom and Birmingham have also played them twice and failed to record a victory.
