Clash Of Titans As Chelsea Battle Man United At Stamford Bridge In Carabao Cup

by AnaedoOnline


This clash has never failed to be trilling, and it can’t be more interesting after Manchester United recorded a back-to-back away win against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League and Norwich in the Premier League, they will be aiming for another away victory as the Red Devils visit Chelsea in Wednesday’s Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge.

The last time both teams met, United ran out 4-0 winners at Old Trafford to get their Premier League campaign off to a dream start in August, but the fortunes of both sides have varied greatly since then.

The four-goal drubbing at Old Trafford may have been harsh on Chelsea, but it also acted as a valuable lesson for Frank Lampard on his Premier League managerial debut, and the club legend appears to now be warming to life in the Stamford Bridge dugout.

Fast forward two-and-a-half months and the roles have more or less been reversed; Chelsea is the team brimming with exciting young talent whereas United are now eagerly awaiting the next transfer window in order to bolster their squad.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had not won on the road in any competition since March prior to that, while Sunday’s victory over Norwich was their first away from home in the Premier League for exactly eight months.

It was also the first time in 13 matches since the opening-day edition of this fixture that United had managed to score more than one goal in a game, and their three-goal haul could have been greater had Tim Krul not saved two penalties too.

Head To Head

United have history on their side with 79 wins to Chelsea’s 54, along with 51 draws.
