Manchester United hosts Chelsea
Manchester United hosts Chelsea in the big derby of the first round of the Premier League. Let’s take a look at this clash at the Old Trafford in our winning soccer predictions.
Manchester United are still trying to rebuild the club after the retirement of the legendary sir Alex Ferguson. Since the departure of sir Alex, the Red Devils are unable to win the Premier League and they are rarely impressing with their performances. Now everyone hopes that the club legend Ole Gunnar Solskajer will make a better effort, turning United into a title contender again
On the market United really boosted their defense, paying the record sum of 87 million euro for Leicester City’s Harry Maguire. He’s now the most expensive defender in history of football. Meanwhile the Red Devils also made two promising signings for the future, buying Crystal Palace’s right back Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Swansea’s winger Daniel James.
In the same time Romelu Lukaku was sold to Inter, while Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia left the club as free agents.
Meanwhile Chelsea are also starting something new. Maurizio Sarri left the club after the end of the last season, being replaced by the club legend Frank Lampard. After winning promotion to the Premier League with Derby County, now Lampard will have a much bigger challenge ahead of him. But one thing is for sure – he will has the support of the fans.
Chelsea were hit by a transfer ban, so they were unable to boost their squad with new players. Before the ban, they managed to sign the American talent Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund, while they also bought Mateo Kovacic after his loan spell from Real Madrid.
Surely the Blues are going to miss their biggest star Eden Hazard, who was sold to Real Madrid. In the same time David Luiz also left the club, moving to Arsenal.
We shall expect a pretty competitive game between Manchester United and Chelsea on Sunday. Frank Lampard will make his debut as a manager of the Blues, but it won’t be easy at the Old Trafford in our winning soccer predictions.
