Chelsea take on the visitors Manchester United at the Stamford Bridge in the 9th tour of the Premier League. The match will be played in London on Saturday, October 20th.
Chelsea are on the second place in the Premier League with twenty points to their credit at the moment. Manchester City are the only team above them in the table now, the Citizens have the same amount of points as Chelsea but a better goal difference to their credit. Now the Blues are the favourites in the lead-up to their upcoming fixture against Manchester United despite of it being probably very hard for them. It`s worth noting that the playing style of Chelsea has changed a lot since Maurizio Sarri has been named as the new manager of the team. Now the Pensioners lean on their offensive line fully and do not care about the ball control as much as they did before. Their attacks have become really quick and variable recently. Last tour the team of Maurizio Sarri beat Southampton on the away side confidently, they scored three goals and conceded zero in that game. The key attacker of the team Eden Hazard has been particularly great lately, he has scored seven goals and has done three assists already this Premier League season. He is the leader of the Blues obviously. In their last three matches Chelsea beat Southampton with a 3-0 score, MOL Vidi with a 1-0 score in their UEFA Europa League group stage fixture and drew against Liverpool. The Pensioners have also had a 1/16-finals fixture of the Carabao Cup recently where they have beaten Liverpool with a 2-1 score.

Manchester United have been in a crisis period recently. However, the management of the teams does not even think about the manager of the team Jose Mourinho being fired potentially despite of the bad results the Red Devils have been getting lately. A lot of football fans think though that the Portuguese manager is not the right one to work in Manchester United. Now the team is on the eighth place in the Premier League with only thirteen points to their credit after eight tours. They are seven points behind the leader of the league already so it is unlikely that the Red Devils will compete for the gold this season. It`s worth noting that the team of Jose Mourinho has had only one game against a top tier club so far this season, that has been their league fixture against Tottenham Hotspur. They lost that game with a 0-3 score in front of their home crowd which was a disgusting result for them. In their last three matches Manchester United beat Newcastle United with a 3-2 score, drew against Valencia with a 0-0 score in their UEFA Champions League group stage fixture and lost to West Ham United with a 1-3 score. The Red Devils have also had a 1/16-finals fixture of the Carabao Cup recently where they have lost to Derby County in a penalty shootout.
Manchester United have been looking very bad so far this season. They have been able to get positive results only against the middle teams or the outsiders in the Premier League recently. In their other games the Red Devils have been looking disgraceful. Thereby it is likely that the Pensioners will get the victory in the upcoming fixture.
Prediction for the match: Chelsea to win.
