Chelsea vs Manchester United Preview
After every Premier League side had played 12 league matches, Chelsea sat in third place on the table, eight points behind Liverpool in the top spot.
The Blues have won just three league matches in 13 tries since. Though they’ve only dropped down to fourth, they now trail the Reds by a practically insurmountable 25 points with a match in hand.
Chelsea last played on Feb. 1, when they drew 2-2 with third-place Leicester City. Center back Antonio Rüdiger put the Blues up with his head out of a corner kick in the 46th minute. After a pair of Leicester goals, the defender again used his head, this time out of a free kick, to equalize.
“I was delighted with his two goals,” Chelsea manager Frank Lampard said, according to the club’s official website. “We need to score more from set-pieces, particularly in games against good opposition when it’s tight. So really pleased with Toni.”
Rüdiger missed all of October and November due to a knee injury and a hernia. He hadn’t scored since October 2018.
“Definitely it was time [I scored] and we were training very hard on these type of set-piece situations, and in this game it came my way,” the 26-year-old German said, per the club’s site.
“I always try to be dangerous in this situation and this game the crosses from Mason [Mount] were good and I felt confident.”
Manchester United haven’t scored in their last three league matches. They suffered a pair of 2-0 defeats to Liverpool and Burnley before settling for a scoreless draw with Wolverhampton ahead of their winter break.
They sit in ninth place on the league table with 35 points through 25 matches, but can leap to seventh with a victory, which would place them three points behind Chelsea and two points behind Tottenham for the last Champions League qualification spot.
United have bested Chelsea twice this season, taking a 4-0 victory in each side’s Premier League opener, then ending the Blues’ EFL run with a 2-1 win in the fourth round.
“Yeah a win gives us a three-point gap and, of course, that’s what we’ve got to aim for,” United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjær said Friday, according to the club’s official website.
“We’ve played them twice already this season and done well, but Chelsea are a good team. They are at home, but we’re going to go there to try to win the game.
“We’ve got to, to give us more belief and more hope and give us confidence that we can kick on, because we need to kick on.”
