Unstoppable force encounters immovable object at Stamford Bridge

Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with 10-man Burnley saw them climb to fourth place in the league in terms of expected goals per match, with a total of two expected goals. Despite their assertion that they should be in fourth place according to data, they are currently in 11th place and could drop even further when they face Manchester United. The draw against Burnley highlighted the wastefulness of Chelsea in front of goal, as they were previously sixth in this metric.

Chelsea’s next opponent, Manchester United, has been struggling defensively, giving away an average of 17.2 shots per game – the second-worst in the league. Furthermore, their expected goals against is also high, ranking them fifth in the league. While United’s league position may not reflect their poor defensive performance, Chelsea’s position near the bottom of the table does not reflect the chances they create during matches.

The upcoming match between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge will be an interesting clash. Pochettino’s attacking force comes up against Ten Hag’s defensive setup. It remains to be seen which side will come out on top in this encounter.
