Sunday “Manchester United” and “Chelsea” meet for the fourth time this season, this time in the struggle for an exit in the FA Cup final. The teams played each other also in the final of the tournament in 2018, when “Chelsea” Antonio Conte has beaten “Manchester United” Jose Mourinho with the score 1:0 thanks to a penalty by Eden Hazard.
Since then, the city team had not beaten the red devils in six intramural games were 2 draws, and 4 times winner Manchester United. As for the current season, it wards OLE Gunnar sulsher showed 100% result, three times beating the “blue” with a total score of 8:1. Moreover, in the composition “United” is Marcus Rashford for which Chelsea is gradually becoming a “favorite” opponent. In career he played 10 matches against the club in which he scored 5 goals (more than any other gate team!). It is interesting that three times he opened the scoring, and 4 of the 5 goals scored this season.
Another point which you should pay attention: in two games this season against Chelsea, the Manchester United left their gates shut. And blue, by the way, in 9 matches left the field with no goals scored. Moreover, Sergio Romero this season 11 times defended “at zero”, while David de GEA – 14.
Another evidence of the advantage Manchester United: after the resumption of the season the team of Frank Lampard was missed in 5 of the eight meetings held. And thrice, at least by 2 goals. At the same time, “Manchester United” were scored at least twice in seven matches in a row, and only Tottenham scored 1 goal.
All of this suggests, it seems to be quite a confident victory “Manchester United”. However, surely the players Chelsea have a different opinion. By the way, is that neither solskjaer nor Lampard have not won the FA Cup as coaches. Although the first 2 wins in the tournament, the second – 4. So motivation both in abundance!
Bookmakers prefer the “Manchester United”. And we venture to suggest that Chelsea will score though, but the finals will not break.
