Chelsea visits Manchester United in this weekend Match Day 28 fixture with the sole aim of picking up the available three points at stake. Both sides are familiar foes as the ground will host both Premier League giants on Super Sunday.
This match will be watched across the globe (world) with keen interest as regards to the reputation of both clubs and the working personnel in charge of both sides.
Manchester United seats 2nd place on the log far off the mark from League Leaders and title (Cup) favourites Manchester City with 15 points separating them at the top, so there will be more to spur United into match contention when they take on the Blues at Old Trafford.
On this note, we take a look at three significant things to expect from the high profile fixture.
This match affords the two of the top Coaches in the modern game the chance to face each other at Manchester United ground.
José Mourinho (Portuguese Talismanic Manager) will be against his Italian counterpart in the Coaching dugout as they trade tackles tactically on the touchline.
This offers the viewers the chance to see some tactical renovation in place as two of the best (arguably) game readers (tactician) square up at Old Trafford.
However, with Jose’s recent show of words with Antonio Conte expect such tantrum to possibly be in the spotlight during the course of the match.
The Manchester United and Chelsea clash literally afford both sides the chance to renew the stern rivalry against each other in the course of the season.
With United not actually competing for the League crown (title) despite being in 2nd place, there will be more than just the 3 (three) points to play for when they lock horns against the Blues at home.
Chelsea’s 1-0 win in the reverse fixture last year will hopefully ignite United’s passion to go out for a home win and this will be good for them if they can get the better of Conte’s men as rivalry continues to brew among both sides irrespective of the stakes(strings) attached to any this fixtures.
Measure of Transfer Acquisition
Both clubs have made some transfer acquisition in recent times, so this match provides the adequate spectrum to assess these players bought by both EPL giants.
Chelsea signed the Likes of Tiemoue Bakayoko coupled with the signing of Everton star Ross Barkley (despite his injury concern in the current campaign) and French forward Olivier Giroud following the arrival of star forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
Chile star Alexis Sanchez moved to United from Arsenal after series of transfer deliberations surrounding his future at the Emirates Stadium some weeks ago.
All eyes will be eager to see how each player performs in this match in response to their transfer fees (status) from their former clubs.
