Manchester United vs Chelsea Live EPL match on 11 August 2019, Kick-off at 16:30 UK and Venue: Old Trafford (Manchester).
Manchester United has a positive preseason tour and will seek to capitalize on its initial encounter with Chelsea this weekend. Solskjaer managed to bring the Red Devils to a decent end after José Mourinho’s fiasco saw them go to an embarrassing position at the table in the middle of the season. The team promising in the first weeks and undefeated during some games.
However, United finished his season without a victory in his last five league games. Chelsea also opted for a change of leadership and recruited former midfielder Frank Lampard to lead the Blues in the game for the silver medal this season. The visitors also separated from their talisman Eden Hazard and hope it won’t hurt them in their race for the title or challenges across Europe.
The clash between the two teams in the Theater of Dreams will surely be exciting, since two old legends of the field will take their place on the bench, to compete only for victory.
