Chelsea vs Manchester United: A Clash of Attacking and Defensive Styles Could Determine Their Fate in the Premier League

Chelsea’s disappointing 2-2 draw with Burnley has left their fans questioning their place in the Premier League. Despite claiming that they should be in fourth place, according to data, Chelsea currently finds themselves in 11th place and could drop even further when they face Manchester United. However, despite their poor performance against Burnley, the draw did see Chelsea rise to fourth in terms of expected goals per match with a total of two expected goals.

This highlights the wastefulness of Chelsea in front of goal, as they were previously sixth in this metric. Their next opponent, Manchester United, has also been struggling defensively and is giving away an average of 17.2 shots per game – the second-worst in the league. Furthermore, their expected goals against are 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 between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge will be an interesting clash as Pochettino’s attacking force comes up against Ten Hag’s defensive setup. It remains to be seen which side will come out on top in this encounter as both teams look to improve their performances before facing off on Saturday night at Stamford Bridge.
