Unstoppable force encounters immovable object at Stamford Bridge

The upcoming match between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge promises to be an interesting clash, with Pochettino’s attacking force coming up against Ten Hag’s defensive setup. Despite their disappointing 2-2 draw with 10-man Burnley, Mauricio Pochettino claimed that Chelsea should be in fourth place in the Premier League according to the data. However, they are currently in 11th place and could drop even further when they face Manchester United.

Despite their impressive attack, Chelsea has been struggling to convert chances into goals. They were previously sixth in the league in terms of expected goals per match but rose to fourth after their draw against Burnley. This highlights the wastefulness of Chelsea in front of goal. On the other hand, Manchester United has been struggling defensively, giving away an average of 17.2 shots per game – the second-worst in the league. Their expected goals against is also high, ranking them fifth in the league.

While United’s league position may not reflect their poor defensive performance, Chelsea’s position near the bottom of the table does not reflect the chances they create during matches. The upcoming match will be a test for both teams as they try to improve their performances and secure a spot in top four. It remains to be seen which side will come out on top in this encounter.
