Ahead of Chelsea’s Premier League game against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge later today, Standard Sport have revealed the three tactical battles that could decide the winner between Chelsea and Manchester United.
According to Standard Sport, the midfield battle between Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante and Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes is a battle that could determine the winner at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea will reportedly have a better chance of beating Manchester United if Kante can successfully shackle Fernandes as it will cut off the supply line to United’s forwards.
The battle between Reece James and Luke Shaw on the wings could also help determine the winner between Chelsea and Manchester United. If James is allowed the space to get past Shaw and fire in his devilish crosses, United are in for a tough evening.
The midfield battle between Mason Mount and Nemanja Matic is another battle that could decide the winner at Stamford Bridge.
According to Standard Sport, Mount is Chelsea’s maestro when at his best. If he can find his form and feet up against a former Chelsea star in Nemanja Matic, Mount can get the Blues firing once more.
