As part of the 13th round of the English Premier League, the central match of the round will take place between London’s Chelsea and Manchester United. The teams are now in completely different positions, but such matches are always interesting and unpredictable.
The London club is incredible right now. Thomas Tuchel’s work in the blue camp is highly commendable. In the current season, the pennies are in the first line in the Premier League, and they also left the Champions League group ahead of schedule, also from the leading position. In England, Chelsea have scored 29 points in 12 games, while scoring 30 times. It is also worth noting that Mr. TT’s team has the most reliable defense in the championship at the moment. In total, 4 goals were conceded. The Blues have excellent defense and well-established positional play. In almost every component of Chelsea’s game, it is unmatched at the moment.
In the last match, which took place in the Champions League, the blue beat Juventus with a score of 4: 0. Thus, Tuchel’s team secured a guaranteed 1 place in the group. After the match, it became known that Chelsea had lost two players due to injuries. Ben Chilwell and Ngolo Kante were injured. Tuchel commented on this situation after the match:
“I am concerned about this situation as Chilwell has a terrific move, as did Rhys James on the opposite sideline. They were both in their best shape, full of strength and confidence, and demonstrated great football. Ben Chilwell complained of severe, acute knee pain. Now he feels a little better, but still we will be able to judge more accurately after tomorrow’s in-depth examination. Let’s hope for the best, ”said the German specialist.

The Mancunians are going through a difficult period right now. The team ended their relationship with Ole Solskjaer. After a crushing 4-1 defeat to Watford, management fired the Norwegian and his former assistant Michael Carrick temporarily took over as head coach.
In the debut match under the leadership of Carrick, Manchester United defeated Villarreal in the Champions League and took the first place in the group ahead of schedule. But in the upcoming match, the Englishman and his charges will face a serious test. Departure to Stamford Bridge against the leader of the table clearly fell not in the most suitable period of the “Red Devils”.
A huge problem and headache for Michael Carrick before the match will be the absence of Maguire, Pogba and Varane. It will be interesting to see what decisions the English specialist will make to face Chelsea.
