It’s just a few days until Chelsea take on Manchester United in the last game between the two clubs before the international break comes knocking again. It’s a very significant one for us because it’s a high-profile one, and might have a say as to how our season ends. Losing a fixture of that magnitude against perennial rivals like United would have a lasting effect on the fans and club itself.
Just Tuesday, we lost out woefully to Roma in the Champions League, another loss is the least we want happening to us on Sunday.
As it stands on the table, we’re about 5 points adrift off United, and 9 off City. One more loss would probably put a nail on the coffin for us, so we must avoid that at all costs. And I have a feeling we will.
Part of the reasons we’ve suffered some confusing losses this term is because of the unavailability of our main man in midfield. With Kantè set to return from his somewhat long injury lay off against United, things are looking good as regards that fixture.
The last time we entertained United at home, we won them very convincingly. It shouldn’t be a different story this time. And if anything, the lads must play for the salvation of both our season and Contè’s career at Chelsea. Roman is watching. And he can only be tolerant for so long.
