Chelsea

For Chelsea, the season is not easy. After last season, a number of key players left the club – Eden Hazard, David Louis, Gary Cahill. In addition, a transfer ban was imposed on the team, and therefore the team practically did not strengthen. The bet was made on young football players, led by Frank Lampard. He did not have enough coaching experience at a high level, but the leadership of the “pensioners”, as it turned out, didn’t fail.

At the moment, the “garlic” settled in fourth place. Going up in the standings will be very difficult, because Leicester and Manchester City have already come off decently and are not going to lose points. Nevertheless, to get into the Champions League there are good chances, given the disqualification of the “citizens”.

Chelsea will not be able to count on Christian Pulisic, who is injured. The participation of midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek and striker Tammy Abraham is under question.

Manchester United

Red Devils also look a little worse in the current championship. Unlike the future opponent, in the summer a lot of money was spent on strengthening, however, this did not appear on the quality of the game.

In 2020, Manchester United managed to beat only the hopeless outsider Norwich 4-0. In the remaining matches, the Mankunians ended in a draw with Wolverhampton (0:0), lost to Arsenal (0:2), Liverpool (0:2) and Burnley (0:2).

Such results were reflected in the tournament position. The Red Devils dropped from fifth to eighth. At the moment, they are four points behind the top five.

In many ways, the latest results were affected by the absence of Marcus Rashford in the team. It was he who skillfully organized the attacks of the Mankunians. He dropped out of the squad for several months, having been injured. To compensate for the losses in the attack, the club management signed Bruno Fernandes and Odion Ighalo. In addition to Rushford, they will not play due to injuries Axel Tuanzebe, Paul Pogba and Scott Mctominay.
