Key Players and Matchups
Cristiano Ronaldo in any side is always a threat to the opposition. In this 2021/22 English Premier League Season, Ronaldo has played 7 matches for Manchester United, and out of the 11 shots that he’s made, he’s managed to score 4 goals and has 1 assist to his name. In addition to these stats, he also has a pass completion rate of 85% this season and will be crucial if United are to take the lead in this fixture.
Mason Mount has been one of the star performers of Chelsea this season and will be hoping to continue his form into this matchup against Manchester United. In the 2021/22 English Premier League season, Mount has featured in 5 matches thus far and has scored 3 goals while providing 2 assists. His pass completion rate of 90% is another critical factor why he’s been such an asset to Chelsea.
Given the current form that Chelsea are in and the fact that the last meeting between these two sides ended with a 4-0 victory for Chelsea makes them the favourites to win this encounter scheduled to be held at Stanford Bridge on November 28, 2021.
