Most of the odds are favouring a draw, a Utd win is 11/10 against, whilst a Chelsea win is 5/2 on, s where the fornicate do you get a 3-0 win from ?
We are faster and look deadly on the counter with the pace. Our pace is devastating.
Shaw was being overwhelmed with 2 V 1 on the overlap because Rashford wasn't tracking back, that was put right and Chelsea had less going forward when we reverted to 4-4-2.raycreative wrote: ↑Mon Aug 12, 2019 8:39 amI think all of the summaries have got it spot on
My initial prediction was also spot on
Chelsea have a very poor defence and with the transfer embargo face a very long season
They are no longer a top side.
Like United they have not replaced a key player in Eden Hazard who was almost a one man team
The other key player Kante was just not fit
And yet they still dominated up to United scoring.
We could/should have been 3-1 down at half time so please don't think this was a quality performance
The two new players had dream debuts and i applaud them
Shaw looked a bit short at left back.He appeared to be getting no help from midfield
MacTominay was very average both going forward and getting back and tackling
Same comment with Periera which was why we were overun in midfield in the first half
Jesse did his headless chicken act and Pogba was mostly anonymous in the first half
Up front Martial and Rashford looked like they had never played together and often chased down the same channel
The biggest threat up front for us was Maguire who looks very strong at both ends
The second half changed because Pogba woke up and started spraying quality passes
Rashford and Martial ran different channels and gave Pogba more options
As predicted when James came on he had the shit kicked out of him
It won't go unnoticed by hardened professionals that he was slow to get up after being kicked by Kante
What we learned
1 We have two very strong defenders and the entire defence will get better as it learns how to play with each other
2 The midfield is very very weak and if the rumours that Pogba is still vulnerable to a transfer we will be in real trouble
3 Martial and Rashford will also get better
I'd rather pick Fergie than Sanchez.
I think we going to see a resurgence, I have sneaky suspicion the real Sanchez is gonna stand up, if he's not loaned out that is!
