The match between Chelsea and Manchester United today would obviously be a cracker and a whole lot has been said in anticipation of the match.
There has been a lot of prediction that it could end in a draw due to the fact that both managers could be forced to rotate their squad as Chelsea have Liverpool in mind while United face AC Milan, both on Thursday.
Chelsea could just pip the red devil’s to the maximum three points. Why?
Chelsea’s dangerous wing-backs
Since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel, he has always deployed the wings-backs to outrightly attack and opposition teams have mostly struggled to contain them, not even the super-defensive Athletico Madrid. Marcos Alonso and Callum Hudson-Odoi could just be set to do what they do best against United today.
Kovacic could be key
Mateo Kovacic has turned a new leaf since the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as he dominates midfield battles effortlessly. His weird understanding with Jorginho has really helped Chelsea dominate possession. He’ll obviously dominate the United midfield and when Chelsea dominates you, you stand no chance.
Bruno could drop another stinker
Recent studies have shown that Bruno Fernandez is gradually becoming the master of small matches as he struggles to replicate that form in big matches. Even in recent matches against Chelsea, he usually have little or no effects. Today could just be no different.
