by time news

A big game seals the 13th round of the Premier League, with Chelsea leading Manchester United. The Blues come in top form after a huge 0: 4 over Juventus in the Champions League and great ability. In the league, too, Thomas Tuchel’s team is in excellent shape and has won four of its first five games when it is at the top with 29 points out of a possible 36. Tuchel has to make do without the injured Ben Chilwell and neither Mateo Kovacic nor Angulo Canta are at his disposal. Romulo Lukaku on the roster. On the other side Harry Maguire was absent after being sent off in a defeat to Watford in the last round. Luke Shaw could also miss the game due to injury, Fred and Edinson Cavani in doubt, Rafael Varane and Paul Pogba still injured. At United it is the debut game in the Premier League of Michael Carrick, who has won the Champions League and wants to get the team out of the mud.

Chelsea have not beaten Manchester United in the last seven Premier League games and this is their longest streak against the Red Devils since not beating them in ten games in a row somewhere between 1950-1938. In fact, Chelsea have not even scored a single goal in their last four Premier League games against United.

Michael Carrick made a surprising change in the squad with Cristiano Ronaldo remaining on the bench while Marcus Rashford, Jaydon Sancho and Bruno Fernandez at the front. At Chelsea Kai Habertz returned to the squad and waited on the bench, Timo Werner got the spot on the edge.
