Unstoppable force encounters immovable object at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea and Manchester United face off in a crucial clash that could determine their fate in the Premier League

Chelsea’s disappointing 2-2 draw with 10-man Burnley has left them in 11th place in the Premier League, despite their manager Mauricio Pochettino’s assertion that they should be in fourth place according to data. This is a far cry from their previous form, as they were previously in fourth place based on expected goals per match, with a total of two expected goals. However, their poor performance against Burnley has highlighted the wastefulness of Chelsea in front of goal.

Despite their struggles, Manchester United presents an interesting challenge for Chelsea. The Red Devils have been giving away an average of 17.2 shots per game – the second-worst in the league – and have a high expected goals against ranking. However, United’s league position does not reflect their poor defensive performance. On the other hand, Chelsea’s position near the bottom of the table does not reflect the chances they create during matches.

As Pochettino’s attacking force faces Ten Hag’s defensive setup at Stamford Bridge, it remains to be seen which side will come out on top. With both teams struggling to find form this season, this match promises to be an exciting clash that could have significant implications for both teams’ future prospects in the league.
