A big game on Sunday as Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea take on Ole Gunnar Solksjær’s Red Army at Stamford Bridge! This game takes place at 16:30 GMT on Sunday the 28th of February. It will be televised on Sky Sports Premier League and Main Event.
Manchester United progressed to the Last 16 of the Europa League on Thursday after a 0-0 draw however we progressed on aggregate by four goals to nil.
The Blues play this game 5 days after their encounter with La Liga leaders, Athletico Madrid. Giroud’s stunning bicycle kick gave Chelsea the 1-0 victory in the first leg of their Champions League tie.
Last time the two sides faced each other in the league it was a 0-0 draw at the Theatre of Dreams. However Chelsea look a much better team under, former PSG and Borussia Dortmund coach, Thomas Tuchel. Manchester United are 2nd and Chelsea are 5th however the gap between the two teams is only 6 points.
The blues are undefeated under their new manager and United have been unbeatable on the road so something could give this Sunday. The obvious outcome would be a stalemate which has often been the case with games involving the top sides in the league.
Thiago Silva is the only doubt for an otherwise fit Chelsea squad. United have multiple doubts with Cavani, van de Beek, McTominay and James all picking up injuries in the last few weeks. Paul Pogba and Juan Mata are both confirmed injuries for the Red Devils.
Most big games this season have been quite poor and resulted in draws. In this case I am predicting a 1-1 all draw! But still, can't wait!
Blues vs Reds, Tuchel vs Solksjær, Chelsea vs United!
Match preview: Following our great win against Atletico, we’re looking to keep our unbeaten streak going to 9 games. I reckon there could be a chance of Giroud playing, as he has a good game last time out. Other than that I reckon the starting 11 will be quite similar to the one against Atletico. We definitely need the 3 points that for sure, as we hope on getting into that top 4 spot, and it will also be great to beat our fellow rivals from up north. I reckon we will win the game, but it’ll be a tough one, we’ll have to play very tactical and stay strong throughout the 90 minutes
Manchester United are in good form at the moment after the 9-0 win against Southampton. I think we have a good chance against Chelsea this Sunday, I can see us winning 2-1 against Thomas tuchels Chelsea but then Chelsea are on good run of form aswell because since Thomas has come in he has made the Chelsea lads play a lot better then they were with frank lampard in charge.
With us on good form aswell I can see this being a good match up hoping that Manchester United will win, I can see us struggling in the defensive department as Ole changes the defence way too much for my liking.
Chelsea host 2nd place Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday Afternoon at 4:30.
Chelsea go into this game on the back off a 1-0 in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid here so they should be feeling quite confident going into this fixture.
The last time the sides faced it ended 0-0 with dominance from Manchester Utd who in the game did deserve the win but an Edouard Mendy masterclass kept Chelsea in the game.
Both teams will be looking for a win in this fixture, Chelsea wanting to get back into the top 4 and close the gap between Manchester United meanwhile the Red Devil’s will look to extend their gap between them and the blues.
Both midfields will have to work very hard in this fixture as the likes of Mason Mount, Bruno Fernandes, Mateo Kovacic and Scott McTominay have been playing very well lately so it will be good to see how it ends up here.
Score Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United
