When recent defeat after defeat is still not gone, Manchester United have been faced with another formidable opponent, Chelsea. The Red Devils are scheduled to host the Blues at Old Trafford on Sunday night (4/28/2019), in the 36th matchweek of the Premier League this season.
This Manchester United clash with Chelsea is a duel between two big four hunter teams whose performances are equally less convincing.
Midnight yesterday, United beat 0-2 in the derby to host Manchester City. While Chelsea were held by Burnley 2-2 at Stamford Bridge.
At the first meeting in the league this season, United and Chelsea played equally strong, 2-2, at Stamford Bridge. Chelsea took the lead through Antonio Rudiger in the 21st minute, then United turned the lead through Anthony Martial’s goal in the 55th and 73rd minutes, but the match ended equally strongly after Ross Barkley scored in the 96th minute.
Seeing the latest conditions, United is actually not too disappointing when defeated by City. Only, the final settlement is not optimal, combined with the poor performance of David De Gea under the rule, making them lose three points.
Manchester United have only won six points in the last six games in the Premier League. Chelsea are a little better, making 11 points in the last seven games.
It’s hard to predict the final result of their clash at Old Trafford later. However, it wouldn’t be too surprising if this match produced a few goals, even a draw.
