Chelsea FC, the Premier League leaders, will face Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday. To stay on top of the standings, the Blues will be willing to maintain their domination in the league. When it comes to victories over the Blues, Manchester United has a superior record. It should be remembered that Chelsea FC last defeated Manchester United in the Premier League in November 2017.
Manchester United has gone undefeated in their previous eleven (11) Premier League away games in London, winning seven (7) and drawing four (4). Fortunately, the Red Devils have won three (3) straight games. Between May and November 2005, they won four (4) straight league visits to the capital. In light of this, this article examines two (2) roadblocks to Manchester United's victory on Sunday.
In fifteen (15) games against Chelsea FC, Cristiano Ronaldo has only managed to score one (1) goal. In top-flight football, the Portuguese skipper has faced Chelsea FC the most times without scoring (10 games). He has a total of 799 goals in his career, and he will be keen to score his 800th goal against the Blues.
As a result, if Cristiano Ronaldo, the Red Devils' striker, is more concerned with setting a record by scoring his 800th goal against Chelsea FC, which may force him to play an individual game, Manchester United may lose the game. Rather than seeking to make history, the Portuguese skipper is expected to play a team game.
Furthermore, Manchester United has only won one (1) and lost four (4) of their last five (5) games against Chelsea FC when the Blues were in first place in the Premier League table (4). Fortunately, the Blues won the league in each of the three (3) seasons they won it, namely 2005/2006, 2009/2010, and 2014/2015.
