Chelsea vs Manchester United
London club won only 5 games during the recent 10 meetings in different competitions. Blues still stand at 4th place of Premier League, however, won only once during the last 5 matches and even surprisingly lost to Newcastle at St. James Park. Against two strongest recent opponents, they played with the same 2:2 results and saved high place in PL. The match against Red Devils at Stamford Bridge could be a great opportunity to take a revenge after 2 defeats in a row since the beginning of the season in PL and EFL. Moreover, Tottenham and Sheffield United are very close at the moment, and after several weak rounds, they need to start building a difference with 5th place. Chelsea struggles this season playing the home matched as they won only 5 games out of 12 and even faced 4 defeats. So this confrontation could be very unpredictable this time. Almost all young Chelsea players should be fully prepared after a long break before this game. Moreover, great news about signing Hakim Ziyech from Ajax this summer could be a great opportunity to show attacking skills.
The Red Devils struggle this season and still can’t find the best game. At the moment they are at 9th place with 6 points away from Chelsea. They have a great chance to shorten the difference and come closer to the top 5 list. However, they also have only 1 win during the last 5 PL matches and even 3 defeats against Liverpool, Arsenal and Burnley. Away statistic is also very unpleasant, as they won only 3 out of 12 PL road matches. Moreover, Manchester is playing without Paul Pogba and Marcus Rashford, what strongly changes the ability to play in attack. They roved the troubles in the attack by finishing match against Wolves at Old Trafford without any scored goals. In general, they failed to score already in 3 recent PL matches. So playing in the Blues area is every time very hard, but this time the Blues will be meaner than usual.
