Manchester United will take on Chelsea in one of the most intriguing fixtures in the Premier League at Old Trafford tomorrow.
The Red Devils, who played an uninspiring goalless draw against Sevilla on Tuesday, will hope to rebuild their reputation as one of the best clubs in England’s top-flight League by beating Antonio Conte’s men on Sunday.
Here are some facts that could inspire the Red Devils to a famous victory against their rivals after 90 minutes of action.
Chelsea Shaky Defense
Chelsea defense has been a major problem for Antonio Conte since the start of this season and that could be a plus for the Red Devils.
The Blues conceded seven goals against two Premier League strugglers- West Brom and Watford- before they went on to keep a clean sheet against a Championship side Hull City.
With Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku, Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial, Chelsea flexible defense would surely concede a goal if they constantly pressurized.
Manchester United are playing at home and that could be an advantage to Mourinho’s team as United fans are always lively during games. With the fans, Chelsea are playing against a 12-man team and not just the normal 11 men.
Mourinho Needs Quick Reaction from his Players after Sevilla Draw
Manchester United players know that they need to show a big-club character against their rival after their draw and that could motivate them to do all they could to win the match.
Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba will all want to prove to Mourinho and fans that they are ready to lead United’s attacking departments.
