3 player battles to watch out for Man Utd Vs Chelsea in today’s game between Manchester United and Chelsea at the Old Trafford.
Manchester United will face Chelsea in an epic clash tonight at the Old Trafford. Both the sides will start their new Premier League campaigns against each other, with both the English giants having a history against each other.
Although, both the teams have been struggling to be in the top-4 of the League, even though Chelsea ended third last time but they had their own struggles and Manchester United ending 6th in the league was embarrassing for the Red Devils.
To improve their situation, Manchester United have signed three players to fill the areas, which needed utmost attention. On the other hand, Chelsea had to remain the same due to the transfer ban, except for the incoming of Christian Pulisic, who was already committed with the Blues while being in Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester United have gone under massive transformation, as their main striker Romelu Lukaku has signed for Inter Milan on the final day of the English transfer window. Thus, bringing Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial in the front. Whereas, the Blues lost their best player Eden Hazard to Real Madrid and Pulisic has arrived to replace the Belgian International.
Cleary both the managers don’t have enough experience in managing a club, as Frank Lampard had a brief stint with Derby before he returned to Chelsea this summer.
Whereas, Ole Solskjaer also had a little experience as a manager before he joined Manchester United as an interim-manager after Jose Mourinho’s sacking last year.
Henceforth, in a very short-span both the sides have faced a lot, so, there will be new approaches and ideologies rushing within both the squads. With this, there will be certain individual battles to look out during the clash and without further ado, the Sportsrush will discuss 3 player battles in tonight’s match.
#1 Christian Pulisic Vs Aaron Wan-Bissaka
One of the most exciting additions in the Premier League is Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund. The USA International is expected to be an elite player in the coming years. The young winger is expected to fill in the shoes of Hazard, and his big test is against Manchester United to showcase his potential.
However, Pulisic is likely to face Aaron Wan-Bissaka tonight, who stormed the Premier League with his impeccable defensive record with Crystal Palace and propelled Manchester United to fill the gap on the right side of the defence by signing the English International.
Wan-Bissaka has been impressed with Manchester United during the pre-season tour, and slowly justifying his mammoth price tag. Hence, a battle between these two players will be interesting to watch.
