3 Things That Manchester United Must Do To Beat Chelsea
The up and down season for Manchester United continues and this game could well be a defining one as they look to get back into the top four come the end of the season. United travel to Stamford Bridge and hope for a similar performance which saw them sweep aside Stoke in a display which will surely please the Manchester United faithful with their attacking brand of football.
Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial were brilliant in the game as they tore apart Stoke and Louis van Gaal would be hoping for a similar performance against Guus Hiddink’s men but that would not be easy as Chelsea are in a good run of form themselves. Chelsea didn’t get the win they wanted away at Vicarage Road but drawing against Watford isn’t the worst result in the world.
The last time these two teams met, it was United who did all the most of the attacking but couldn’t get past the Chelsea defence and of course the posts did play their part in denying them a goal. We look ahead to an extremely important game and provide the three keys for United if they are to get the three points against the Blues.
- Do no mess with the starting lineup
Manchester United probably had their best performance of the season against Stoke City and Louis van Gaal shouldn’t tinker with his team even though he would be away from home. United are in a decent run and with the likes of Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial doing well against Stoke, they shouldn’t be shuffled about.
Van Gaal might be tempted to play Morgan Schneiderlin in midfield to nullify some of Chelsea’s attacking threat but keeping Marouane Fellaini and Michael Carrick in midfield should be the way to go with Fellaini playing in midfield and not in attack.
