Last Meeting Chelsea 0:0 Manchester United:
28th February, 2021 was the first time Tuchel faced a Manchester United side. But this time he will face a different United side with more new additions of Ronaldo, Sancho as well as new caretaker manager Michael Carrick.
The last time these two sides met it was a bore draw in the end with no goals scored. There were shots on target but all were comfortable saves made by the keepers. Mendy had to make 4 saves while David de Gea made a total of 6 saves against the Blues. This time around both the teams will be looking to up their game with different playing styles. We should expect more than a goal in this fixture provided the attacking quality both these sides posses on paper.
