Chelsea Should Have No Problems


Buoyed by the news of Ralf Rangnick’s imminent appointment, Manchester United travel to Chelsea for Sunday afternoon’s tantalising Premier League encounter. The Blues remain top of the pile with 29 points from their opening 12 games, whereas Michael Carrick’s side sit seven places and 12 points below the European champions.


Victory over Juventus marked Chelsea’s ninth win from 10 in all competitions, and the league leaders remain three points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table having conceded a league-low four goals all season – three of which have come at home, though.


However, Matej Vydra’s equaliser for Burnley is the only goal that Chelsea have conceded over their last 450 minutes of top-flight football, and United’s famed attackers will have their work cut out to impress their soon-to-be interim boss.


Five of Solskjaer’s last seven Premier League games in charge of Man United ended in defeat, and the Red Devils have failed to win back-to-back games on the road across all competitions this term – with a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys sandwiched in between top-flight successes at Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United.


History may be on the Red Devils’ side, though, as they are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League meetings with Chelsea – keeping clean sheets in each of their last four – although both highly-anticipated games last term ended goalless.

DPP Verdict

United may possess some of the strongest attacking names the league has to offer and can boast some positive recent results against Chelsea, but Carrick’s midfield and depleted defence do not inspire any confidence whatsoever. If the Blues are capable of producing half as good a showing as they did in midweek – even with a couple more injury woes to contend with – Tuchel’s table-toppers should have no problem ending their winless streak against United here.
