Manchester United, who are currently in 9th place in the table, understand that beating Chelsea today will necessitate a number of qualities.
Although Cristiano has been in for the Red Devils, interim manager Carrick did not name him in today's starting eleven.
However, for those who have been looking for answers, here are my thoughts on why Carrick did not start Ronaldo in today's match against Chelsea.
1. He's a certain age:
Carrick is well aware that Chelsea will press the team and will not risk playing Ronaldo, who will not contribute to the team's defense. As we all know, C Ronaldo is in his late 30s and would be unable to run around the field.
2. Tactical strategy
Carrick, I believe, wants to play counter-attacking football, a style of play that will allow Chelsea to have possession while hurting them with pace and counter-attacking.
3. Chelsea's formidable defense:
There's no doubt that Chelsea have the league's best defense, and Carrick may be thinking tactically that Ronaldo can't do anything if he starts as a point 9.
