Is Chelsea really better than Manchester United?

90

19:27

Conclusion:
End of working day! After 90 minutes, Chelsea and Manchester United split goalless 0-0. After the change of sides, a respectable football game developed over time, with opportunities on both sides. The greatest chance of the game was missed by Ziyech after 49 minutes, who failed due to the strong parrying De Gea. In the final phase, Manchester was increasingly content with the draw and tried to keep the defense tight, which also worked well. So the Red Devils keep the lead on the Tuchel-Elf at six points. The guests will probably be able to live better with the performance-based draw in the end. With that we say goodbye at this point and wish you a nice evening!

Half-time conclusion:
Break at Stamford Bridge! Between Chelsea and Manchester United it goes goalless in the lockers. The Tuchel-Elf started the game well, but could not keep the intensity as high as it went on. The Red Devils took command from the middle of the first half, but without really getting any dangerous chances. The guests were unlucky that referee Attwell did not give United a penalty after 15 minutes. Otherwise, not much happened in front of the gates of either team. We are excited to see how things will continue after the break. See you soon!

Compared to the 1-0 win in Madrid, Tuchel made three changes in his starting line-up. Chilwell is plowing the left wing instead of Marcos Alonso today. In addition, Kanté moves into the central field for Jorginho and Ziyech for Werner in the offensive midfield.

16:50

However, the guests from Manchester have not been defeated in the league this season. In addition, the Red Devils booked the ticket for the second round of the Europa League against Real Sociedad during the week. ManU coach Ole Gunnar Solskjær was able to spare some of the regulars in view of today's game. The goal in the league is clearly to book the ticket for the premier class. United are currently six points ahead of fifth Chelsea with 49 points. From the point of view of the guests, the distance should at least not have narrowed after the game.

The Londoners come with the tailwind of the 1-0 success in the first leg of the first leg of the premier class against Atlético Madrid. In addition, the Blues are still unbeaten under the coach Tuchel, which should remain that way from the perspective of the Londoners.
