The premier league is back this weekend, and one of the games we are looking forward to is the clash between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge!
After losing 2-1 to Huddersfield Town, Jose Mourinho’s side were able to bounce back to winning ways by beating Swansea City in the League Cup before the 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford.
They also continued their impressive run by beating Benfica in the Champions League on Tuesday night – and all attention is now towards the Chelsea game.
Last season, Man United were thrashed at Stamford Bridge by Chelsea when the West London club won the game with four goals.
This season however, Man United are stronger, and are currently leading Chelsea with 4 points on the premier league table.
And ahead of the premier league game, the good news for Man United fans is that Chelsea talented midfielder N’Golo Kante is not yet fully fit and is unlikely to feature in the meeting (via The Independent)
Kante played a pivotal role in helping Antonio Conte win the premier league trophy last season, and the Italian tactician has sorely missed the talented midfielder in his squad.
The former Leicester City man has not played since September after picking up an injury while playing for his country, and he is unlikely to be rushed back into the starting XI this weekend.
The France international was not available when Roma thrashed Chelsea on Tuesday night in the Champions League, and his absence this weekend will boost Man United’s chances of winning the game.
