Our prediction for this Premier League match:
All eyes will be on Stamford Bridge when Chela and Manchester United take on each other in the Premier League round 13. The Blues failed to impress in a goalless draw with Brentford, but despite the loss of points they remained in the Champions League berth. Graham Potter’s troops aim to return to winning ways as soon as possible, and they are likely to fight tooth and nail against the Red Devils. Both Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Raheem Sterling should be recalled to the starting XI, while all Reece James, N’Golo Kante, and Wesley Fofana are out of contention with injuries.
Man Utd, on the other hand, recorded a morale-boosting 2-0 win over Tottenham, with Bruno Fernandes putting an end to his dreadful goalless run. Erik ten Hag is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Harry Kane and Co, but all Anthony Martial, Donny van de Beek, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and Brandon Williams remain in the treatment room. Harry Maguire is unlikely to be risked against Chelsea. Anyhow, the share of spoils is on the cards as the two teams seem to be evenly matched at the moment.
Highlighted Player (N Golo Kante):
Born in Paris in 1991, N’Golo Kante spent his early career playing for French minnows Boulogne and Caen, but he didn’t need a lot of time to catch the eye of high-profile clubs. The holding midfielder was on the verge of joining Marseille in the summer of 2015 when Leicester City submitted a £5.6 million for his services and he eventually signed for the King Power Stadium outfit.
Destiny appears to have played a part in the move as Kante would go on to become one of leading Premier League footballers in an unbelievable season that ended with the Foxes winning the Premiership trophy. Having deservedly been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year award, Kante would also receive the first ever call-up for the national team in March 2016, and he impressed in his first two appearances, scoring a goal in the 4-2 triumph over Russia.
A combative midfielder with an amazing pair of lungs, Kante impressed Premier League fans and pundits alike, and he will probably go down as one of the best holding midfielders to have ever played for an English club.
Highlighted Team (Manchester United):
Over the years Manchester United have established themselves as one of the greatest clubs in world football. The Red Devils have won three European Cup (Champions League) trophies and they have clinched no less than 20 Premier League titles.
A number of top-class players were part of Manchester United in the past, but, no doubt, the club’s biggest legend is coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who was in charge of the team for 26 years. During Alex Ferguson’s spell at Old Trafford the club won a number of trophies, but the Red Devils have been struggling in all competitions ever since he retired. Louis van Gaal helped Manchester United win the FA Cup trophy in the 2015/2016 season, with Jese Lingard scoring the winner in the 2-1 triumph over Crystal Palace at Wembley Stadium.
The likes of Bobby Charlton, Paul Scholes, Roy Keane, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Wayne Rooney, Cristiano Ronaldo, George Best and Eric Cantona are the football stars that graced Old Trafford for Manchester United.
