Unbeaten in seven home class matches versus Chelsea (W3, D4) Manchester United are light after a phenomenal midweek win (2-1 versus PSG). In any case, they are winless in the last three Premier League (PL) matches (D2, L1) to be played after European inclusions, yielding first inside the initial half-hour each time.
Ought to the ‘Red Devils’ lose, they will have done as such in three sequential first-class home games unexpectedly since the 1978/79 mission. Generally speaking, they are on a run of four PL home games without triumph (D2, L2 – GF 5, GA 12), with 25% of their objectives yielded in that originating from the punishment spot. Three of the matches saw them trail by one objective at the 15-minute imprint.
Chelsea supervisor Frank Lampard administered a 4-0 thrashing in this installation the last term, for a horrendous group debut as the Blues’ director. As of now, his untouched PL record versus other perpetual supervisors speaking to a previous club since the beginning of 2019/20 is poor: W1, D3, L4. Five (62.5%) of those matches saw the host of the day score first inside 30 minutes.
Moreover, Chelsea yielded a normal of 1.29 objectives after the hour mark over the matches drawn/lost in the above succession. In any case, the harm has been done significantly sooner over Chelsea’s last three PL away games drawn/lost in general, with the ‘Blues’ yielding a normal of 2.67 objectives before HT (1-30′: 1.67) over that triplet.
Players to watch: Three (W2, L1) of Man United’s last five serious games (counting the midweek win versus PSG) have seen Bruno Fernandes net a punishment and give his side a one-objective lead at the time scored.
At last in structure, Timo Werner got twofold inside the initial half-hour of Chelsea’s last alliance game. Thusly, four of his last five objectives have been scored inside that early period.
Hot detail: Man Utd’s record-breaking PL home record versus Chelsea (Apr 1993-present) is: W11, D11, L6, with those triumphs seeing, in any event, one half won/lost by a 1-0 scoreline.
