Conte masterclass... where are those people thinking he should get sacked, that's laughable
Miserly and poor approach, again in a match against direct rivals. I'm beginning to doubt that Mou is the coach for the MU.Of course you can get lost, but with attitude...
Game should have been 4-0, 5-0 to Chelsea. United pathetic performance.
If it was Willian instead of Bakayoko, Chelsea would have scored more goals.
@MrNemobody You can't be serious, Bakayoko was a monster in this game. Willian is one of CFC's worst players based on current form. And you putting goals and Willan in the same sentence is laugbable and ignorant
@excalibur Willian has dipped this season but he's still a special player at times. Regardless you're right, Bakayoko was a BEAST
@excalibur Bakayoko is very good playing as defensive or central midfielder, but he was playing as attacking midfielder today. He screwed up many scoring chances today. Not saying it was a bad game for him, but that is not his best position.
@MrNemobody He played a brilliant game. He was relentless. This is the perfect role for him. In time he will improve composure in the final third and improve his shooting. He just needs to do this on a regular basis. It's probably the best I've ever seen Bakayoko play in his career. But he has Kante to thank for that. Bakayoko had complete freedom due to Kante's discipline.
@Champion- I agree this is the best position for him but that is because he wasn't actually playing as an attacking midfielder. His heat map and average player position prove he was playing as a box-to-box midfielder, which is categorically his best position- and always has been. When Kante is out of the team, he has to rein his marauding in which not only harms his own performance but Chelsea's. With Kante in the team, however, Bakayoko can be a true box-to-box player and that means getting involved in and on the end of attacks.
@SteveHyland He was a box to box central midfielder of course. I ignored that comment he made about his position. Fabregas and Bakayoko were basically CM's with a license to roam (Fabregas) and bomb forward (Baka)
Kante is lightyears better than Matic. Kante's agility, mobility , stamina and defensive IQ is simply on another level to Matic. Kante also bases his whole game around control, helping his team mates have more freedom and more of the ball. It must be really reassuring to have such a team orientated hard worker with pace and stamina behind them. Fabregas and Bakayoko have played with so much freedom knowing that Kante never switches off mentally. Hell of a player Kante and one that every team needs. He is hands down the best defensive midfielder in the world. And yes, that's his role in this game. A pure DM
Another Snorefest by mourinho
@pasopati It's an open game...watch the game and then comment
Decent game so far. Kante has been excellent so far. Hazard looks dangerous
Wing backs too isolated, Mkhitaryan and the strikers need to offer them more support
referee in red
I like Chelsea a whole lot more when David Luiz is on the pitch. Conte's "tactical" decision for leaving him out here is not making me happy.
@vfx_superstar Chelsea defensive system was way better without him.
@MrNemobody You're probably right. I just like him is all.
its impossible Chelsea can loose today...iam very sure of that Chelsea X 100% best option for this match
@delpiero1100 Not judging or anything, but your predictions are usually wrong
@MessiGOAT hahahaha so iam right this time
@MessiGOAT He's ~75% of the times wrong, but when right he's telling everyone here how he's the best predictor in human history.
@fervour21 make that 99%
A close encounter is expected with a win coming from a mistake or counter for either team. I'll go for a draw or a narrow win for United, Jose will want to rectify what happened on their last trip to Stamford Bridge.
I think a good bet for this game is Over 1.5 goals, 1.40 odd at Bet365. I have a strong feeling there will be goals from both teams and a draw- 1:1.
Manchester United playing 3-5-2. What a time to be alive. That United Midfield is something else. 3 CB of Bailly Smalling and Jones. 5 in the Midfield. VaLencia and Young on the flanks, Herrera Matic and Fellaini as CM. Front 2 of Rashford and Lukaku. Don't tell me Fellaini is injured. He's back so is Kante. Desperate times for desperate players. FPL got him returning on 5th November.
Fellaini playing behind Rashford and Lukaku.
Chelsea 1-2 United. I could tell you all the stats. And stats are directing to an United 1-3 win.
@njamimaranga You have predicted MU to score 3 goals away from home against a top side. I cannot believe people as delusional as you exist to be honest
this will be Jose first Man United win at Stafford Bridge as Manchester United manager.
I am going for 2-1 in favor of Red !
whoscored match forecast: Manchester united will control the game in the opposition's half- Likely
Me: not going to happen
facts abt Chelsea v man u game:it determines Antonio contes job;with this in mind José men Connot accept a humiliating action twice at Stamford;with bailly ,Jones,smalling,young,Valencia,magic,herera,fellaini all in travelling squad expect a defensive game hence low scoring;lukaku can't score in this game;morata ,hazard can't score in this game;a clean sheet will be witnessed for one side or both;if Chelsea scores in ht1 they will win if not forget;if man u scores in ht1 they will win;David luiz will end up with at least yellow card or red card;
The Correct score is 0:1
for those who bet ht1 0-0 na full time cs ni noma either 1-0;0-1;0-0 BT 0-0 being most likely .
Kick-off is 4.30pm not 5.30pm.
How does everyone feel about this? Do you not think Whoscored should put a conversion rate on every player for goals? 10 shots for 1 goal = 10% conversion rate. It would be good to have on attackers. Also total ground covered (km/miles) in the match, per match etc. I'm sure they are other stats they could include. Even successful claim percentage, save percentage etc on keeper.
United to win
my prediction chelsea 2 - 2 man u
chelsea 0 - 1 United lukaku to score
Mourinho's 9 latest away match vs TOP 6 :
P : 9 ;
W : 0 ;
D : 5 ( All 0-0) ;
L : 4 ;
Goal Scored : 1 ;
Concede : 11 ;
My Prediction for this match, Either MU will draw 0-0 against them or lose the game,
But I still have hope and believe that they will win this game, #MUFC #GGMU
Chelsea 0 - 0 United
@Overmars I really love your predictions####
keep up man they are the best so far
This game has draw all over it! United coming for that one point and hoping for that lucky 3 pointer Jose normally gets by exploiting oppositions errors. Chelsea are not in best shape at all! 0:0/1:1! Conte must not be naive and underestimate Jose. Jose can score 1 goal and defend all game until final whistle! Seen it many times before!
Chelsea need to win this game. 0-0 is unlikely. Chelsea will push for win and be open on the break. I'm going to say 2-1 to Chelsea.
Is this whole Roma loss and the narrative that follows it, a deliberate ploy by Conte to get second spot in their CL group and lulling United into a false sense of security? Chelsea haven't been as prolific in front of goal and are far weaker defensively yet United have been playing like they're doused in syrup...2:2
@daveco7 No. It's not a deliberate 0-3 loss. Wake up to reality child. You are crazy.
@Champion not necessarily deliberate, but he could have instructed the players to play more conservatively knowing who they were playing at the weekend. And less of the name calling, offer a constructive or interesting criticism/argument or nothing at all.
Looking at a draw right here. MOTM Morata with two goals for the blues. Lukaku and Rashford on goal for the reds.
