Chelsea were awful while playing at the Old Trafford. We thought they already won the league but that’s not the case. Their key players are injured while training. The left back Alonso, the goalkeeper Thibaut and while encountering with Manu their mid didn’t performed as we have seen throughout the season, and most importantly the Diego Costa’s goals are missing and giving ball away very easily
If we talk about Man united then we have to give credit to them. They were very perfect if we compare with Chelsea performance. The way Mourinho played his players are critical factor in this match. Just look at the top class performance by Herrera who outclassed Hazard in the match and Pogba is doing job in the middle while tackling and dealing with Kante.
Mourinho always try to bring some spice in big matches by benching his top man. And in this match he benched Zlatan Ibrahimović the man known for his attitude. But it’s a tactical decision and of course Zlatan also need some rest. He bring Rashford instead of Zlatan and we all know he is the wonder guy having immense pace, so Manu bossed in every section. The attack, mid and defense it was all superb performance by the red devils.
That victory arises the hope for Manchester United to qualifying for the Champions League as they are 4 points behind Manchester City who are currently at 4th of the table with a one game in hand. The reason behind of their champion’s league qualification is Arsenal who are not at their best although they have an advantage of 3 games in hand but their poor performance throughout the season is in favor for Jose’s United.
Things will be more cleared at the end of the April that who will finish where when Jose’s Manu will play back to back game at the end of April. They have three games that are vital for them. The one against Manchester city which will be played at Old Trafford. Away game with Arsenal on 7th of May and another Away match against Tottenham on 14th of May is very important for Red Devils.
In this week we came to know that Chelsea are in big pressure at the moment. As Tottenham side are very persistent and they are only 4 points behind the League Leaders Chelsea. Another Slip from Chelsea can be a crucial point for Tottenham.
If you look at the Chelsea fixtures they look very easy but after facing defeat from Crystal Palace at the Stamford Bridge they are a little bit shaky.
The Blues played phenomenal throughout the season and we have seen that one injury makes them vulnerable. One replacement makes it unbalance for the team as we saw it against Crystal Palace where Victor Moses was injured and we got defeated and now Alonso and Thibaut was out and we don’t know for sure the returning date of these two.
All in all it was a fascinating weekend in the premier league and who will lift the Premier League trophy we cannot predict that.
