In one of the matches of the English Championship, Chelsea and Manchester United players will clash face to face. On whose side will the victory be in this confrontation? Our sports portal gives a forecast for this meeting.

Chelsea

Chelsea players are the sole leaders of the Premier League standings after 12 matches played. It is worth noting that the asset of "pensioners" has 29 points. After the failures in the matches against Manchester City and Juventus at the end of September, Thomas Tuchel's team gave out a 10-match series without defeats – 9 wins and 1 draw. It is noteworthy that Chelsea's results were not affected even by injuries to Lukaku and Werner. The home team found internal reserves that helped compensate for the losses. Earlier in the week, Chelsea managed to defeat Juventus in a face-to-face meeting with a score of 4:0 in the LCH.

Manchester United

After 12 matches played, the Red Devils are on the eighth line in the standings. Manchester are already 12 points behind Chelsea. Last week, United failed miserably against Watford, losing to an opponent with a score of 1:4. Immediately after this failure, the management dismissed Sulscher. In the next meeting, the Mancunians were led by Michael Carrick, and his team managed to win over Villarreal with a score of 2:0 in the LCH. Despite the positive result, Carrick will soon give up the post of head coach to Ralph Rangnik. It is expected that the specialist will work with United until the end of the season, after which he will get a position in the structure of the club.
