Chelsea – Manchester United
Chelsea welcomes Manchester United in the big derby of the 9th round of the English Premier League. These two teams will meet at the Stamford Bridge in London on Saturday afternoon.
Chelsea are currently 2nd in the Premier League standings, being on par with the leader Manchester City and the 3rd Liverpool. These three teams have won 20 points each so far. In the last few weeks Chelsea made two consecutive draws against West Ham and Liverpool, but in the previous round Maurizio Sarri’s boys once again enjoyed a win, beating Southampton with 3-0 away from home.
After a dissapointing last season with Antonio Conte, right now Chelsea once again look like a contender for the title. Maurizio Sarri is doing a great job, since he was appointed as a manager of the team. There’s no doubt that his Chelsea is going to be one of the big favourites for the title in the Premier League.
Manchester United’s manager Jose Mourinho is facing the team with which he won three titles in the Premier League. Right now the Special One is not enjoying a really special time at the club. United are 8th in the league standings, trailing on 7 points behind Chelsea. The Red Devils already lost three of their matches so far, which is not telling us anything good abou their form since the start of the season.
And now it won’t be easy for United at the Stamford Bridge. Except of the draw against Liverpool, Chelsea are perfect at home since the beginning of the campaign. Manchester United really need to play a great game here in order to have a chance for something more.
That’s what we had to say about the Premier League derby clash between Chelsea and Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge. Good luck!
