The Blues will host Manchester United in the Carabao cup on Wednesday night in a bid to revenge what the club did to them in the opening game. Both clubs faced each other in the week 1 of the English premier league and it was a whitewash result as Manchester United defeated Chelsea 4 goals to nil but the Blues since that games has really stepped up their game as they are now currently on the number 4 position on the log table while United since then have been trying to make things right with their poor run in the league, though they won their last game against Norwich away from home after getting a narrow away win in their champions league as well, they will be looking forward to increase their away good result to 3 on a row when they visit the Blues at the Bridge tomorrow.

The game may never go as expected because looking at it from both teams form in all competition, everybody will give it to Chelsea to win the game after going to Amsterdam to defeated Ajax at home to top their group in the UEFA champions league, Chelsea has been in a good form finding it very easy to score goals in every of their outing and while Manchester United looks like a team without a game plan in some of their last matches, finding it really hard to score goals but it now look like the team is getting back to their feet little by little after holding Liverpool to a 1-1 draw and getting a positive result away from home against Partizan Belgrade and the recent one against Norwich, it may never come very easy at Stamford Bridge when both side meet again but it is really going to be an interesting match to watch.


Chelsea has really gotten a lot of options in their squad as many players are really hungry for playing time and the manager may be very desperate this time around to make a lot of changes to his line up but there will actually be some new faces in the line up in other to allow some players to rest and to also safe the risk of fatigue to some players that has played numbers of matches so far for the club. It may be another chance for Batshuayi or Giroud to start ahead of Abraham who is the leading scorer for the club this season depending on the manager choice and how they have actually impress him at training. Pulisic may also start the game after taking his chance right against Burnley to net 3 perfect goals while both Jorginho, Kovacic, Gilmour and Mount will also be available for selection while Barkley is still a doubt and as well as Ngolo Kante and Rudiger.

Manchester United

Ole Solskjaer will really have to be mindful of his selection against the side he defeated 4 goals to nil in their first league game thinking about his next game in the league away to Bournemouth and with lots of injuries affecting the team right now, he may also likely to make some adjustment to the squad that defeated Norwich in their last game. Although, the return of Martial back to the line up has really boosted the team attack with the French man scoring against Norwich with Rashford as well on ground for selection. Paul Pogba is still out to injury and there is no any sign of returning to the team until December and as well as Eric Bailly. Both Luke Shaw and Matic are just recovering back from injury and there is no chance of featuring tomorrow.

Possible Line Up

  • Chelsea

Caballero, James, Zouma, Tomori, Alonso, Barkley, Kovacic, Mount, Hudson-Odoi, Batshuayi, Pulisic

  • Manchester United

Romero, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Rojo, Williams, McTominay, Pereira, Fred, Lingard, James, Rashford


The Red Devils are actually ahead of the Blues as far as history is concern winning 79 matches in all of their matches been played compared to 54 wins from Chelsea. They are yet to lose a game in their last four visitation to the Bridge and will be hoping to repeat that but taking a look at how Chelsea manager Lampard has transformed the team since their first shocking defeat in the league will make it hard to give it to Manchester United, they have not been too clinical in front of goals as many of their goals this season has actually come from a penalty kick. The game may see both sides scoring each other and may also lead to extra time where the winner will be decided by a penalty shootout but whatever the case may be, i see Chelsea progressing to the next round of the competition.

My Tip

Both team score or over 2.5
