Man Utd Vs Chelsea match prediction : Who will win between Manchester United and Chelsea on the 3rd day of the new Premier League season.
Manchester United will face their fierce rivals Chelsea to bring an exciting encounter on the third day of the new Premier League season. Chelsea will visit the Old Trafford to start their league campaign.
Even though both the teams have been struggling in recent times, but still both the clubs have managed to give some exciting football display in the past encounters.
Before the beginning of the season, Chelsea faced huge setbacks, first was the year-long transfer ban, which prevented them to bolster their squad this summer, and other was the departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid this summer, which has depleted the Blues’ squad.
Although, Chelsea have managed to arrive Christian Pulisic and Mateo Kovacic, who were already committed to the Blues since last summer. However, the London based club still have issues in the squad.
On the other hand, Manchester United after facing a humiliating sixth spot in the Premier League last summer have tried to pull themselves up by making good signings in Daniel James, Harry Maguire and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
With the signings of Maguire and Wan-Bissaka, the Red Devils have covered their weaknesses, and Wan-Bissaka also has been impressive for Manchester United during the pre-season tour.
Thus, for the game, Manchester United seem more positive and in flow, with Ole Solskjaer’s tactics are working right in past few matches. Whereas, Chelsea’s newly appointed manager is yet to make his Premier League debut as a manager.
So far, Lampard’s tactics with Chelsea haven’t been clear, and it is not sure whether the former English International will continue with the same strategy, he used at Derby.
A fixture with history. ✨

However, Lampard has confessed that he would like to cover all the areas in his tactics and want to be adaptable with his approach.
Last time, both the teams met at the Old Trafford, and a few months later they are set to meet at the same place once again. However, both the teams since then massively lost lethality in the attack, as the Red Devils lost Romelu Lukaku and Chelsea lost Hazard in this transfer window.
So, it is certain that both the teams will be in a low-scoring contest, but Manchester United have an advantage defensively, as the partnership of Maguire and Victor Lindelof is expected to be a brilliant partnership. So Ole Solskjaer side might edge against Chelsea tomorrow.
Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Pogba, Fred/McTominay, Matic; Lingard, Martial, Rashford
Chelsea: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Zouma, Christensen, Emerson; Jorginho, Kovacic, Barkley; Pedro, Pulisic, Abraham
Manchester United 1-0 Chelsea
