On December 6, Manchester United and Chelsea will play each other at Old Trafford as the two titans of English football rekindle their rivalry.
Manchester United makes their way back to Old Trafford following a depressing 1-0 loss to Newcastle in their last game. Even yet, on this bitterly cold night, Eddie Howe’s devastated team was a cut above Erik ten Hag’s docile warriors. In the second half, Newcastle were duly rewarded when Anthony Gordon, full of energy, met a pass played into the six-yard box by Kieran Trippier and finished at the back post. The loss drops them to seventh place, 9 points behind leaders Arsenal. Following their loss in the North East, United has now won only two of their previous five games after blowing a two-goal advantage in Istanbul last week when playing in the Champions League. In this upcoming game, Ten Hag will be reluctant to bring back any of his current absences. Although Jonny Evans, a native of Northern Ireland, might recover in time, he is doubtful to start.
Chelsea is in excellent spirits as they head to Old Trafford after defeating Brighton 3-2, even if they were reduced to 10 men in the 2nd half. The Blues have only lost two of their past 8 EPL games, moving them up to 10th place in the competition. The team led by Mauricio Pocchetno has played in a number of high-scoring away games recently; in their past 3 travel games, they have either won 4-1 or lost 4-1. Following back-to-back wins against Spurs and Burnley, a humiliating loss against Newcastle ensued. Conor Gallagher will not play for the journey to Old Trafford due to his dismissal in their last game. The manager, though, will have the option to bring Reece James back into his starting lineup.
