So, the loss of points in the match with Soton was quite justified. However, after this draw Chelsea dropped from fourth to fifth place in the standings. The gap from West Ham is not so significant, which is only two points, while the distance from the Leicester-Manchester United duo is only six points.
It should be noted that after Frank Lampard's castling on Thomas Tuchel, the "pensioners" have not yet lost in the English Championship. Under the leadership of the German, Chelsea had six matches, in which, in addition to Southampton, they also drew with Wolverhampton, but beat Tottenham (1:0) and Sheffield United (2:1) away. They also were stronger at home with the same 2:0 score against Burnley and Newcastle. Note that in all six matches the Londoners conceded only two goals.
In general, Chelsea have lost only twice for the entire current championship in their native walls, while in all 12 fights they won six more victories and drew four times. At home, Chelsea are now fourth in the Premier League.
Chelsea has only one loss. Defender Thiago Silva will not play due to injury.
Manchester United go to Stamford Bridge to prove that they are not in vain the best away team of the current championship in England. In 12 away matches, the Red Devils have not yet suffered a single defeat, having eight wins and four draws. So far, this is the third position. Only Manchester City and Leicester are higher on the road, but they played more for one match.
It should be noted that compared to the beginning of the season, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's wards often lost points in the last away matches. So, in six previous matches they managed to beat only Fulham (2:1) and Burnley (1:0) on their fields, ending at the same time in a draw duel with Leicester (2:2), Liverpool ( 0:0). Arsenal (0:0) and West Brom (1:1).
Manchester United's personnel losses are as follows: due to injuries, Paul Pogba, Juan Mata and Phil Jones will definitely miss the match. Doubtful are Scott McTominay, Edinson Cavani and Daniel James.
At the same time, both teams do not really allow them to hit their goal now. In our opinion, there will hardly be more than 24 hits for two.
