On Thursday, May 25, 2023 Manchester United will compete against Chelsea in the Matchday 32 of the Premier League match. Watch here, Manchester United vs Chelsea live streaming, preview and how to watch it.
United have a great chance of securing a ticket to the Champions League next season if they can score points in this match, Man United only needs one more point to ensure a ticket to the Champions League next season. The Red Devils are currently in 4th place with 69 points from 36 matches, three points ahead of Liverpool who are in fifth place and still have two games remaining (against Chelsea and Fulham), while Liverpool only have one match.
On the other hand, Chelsea slumped in 12th place and lacked high motivation. Chelsea have had a very disappointing season despite spending over half a billion pounds in the transfer market. Poor performance, low morale, lost trust makes the fans of this team want this season to end soon.
The Blues have only won 1 win since being handled by Frank Lampard and it is certain that they cannot qualify for European competition next season. Chelsea also just lost to Manchester City in the previous match.
Regarding players, Marcus Rashford, Man Utd’s mainstay striker, is still doubtful to appear against Chelsea due to illness. Rashford trained in full on Monday (22/5), but was absent on Tuesday (23/5). Rashford is expected to recover and play in the remaining 2 matches of the 2022/2023 Premier League and the FA Cup final. However, Erik ten Hag as coach did not want to force Rashford to play against Chelsea. He will see the last condition of the player before the game.
Even without Rashford, Man United still has many attacking options such as Anthony Martial or Wout Weghorst. However, Rashford’s presence is very important when it comes to scoring goals. Man United is determined to win the remaining 2 matches of the Premier League 2022/2023 so they can finish in 3rd place in the final standings.
Meanwhile, Chelsea, who no longer have any targets in the 2022/2023 season, will play carefree. The Blues are already safe from relegation, but are unlikely to qualify for European competition next season. The defeat against Manchester City in the last match made Chelsea certain to finish outside the top 10 of the 2022/2023 Premier League. In fact, if they are able to beat Man United and Newcastle in the last 2 matches, the best position they can reach is 11th.
However, if you can win the last 2 matches of the 2022/2023 Premier League, especially against Man United, it will make the players’ confidence better. Moreover, not only the results, the Blues’ game this season has also been disappointing.
Anthony Martial is likely to spearhead the Man Utd attack, while Jadon Sancho will replace Marcus Rashford who is still not fully recovered.
Meanwhile, because many players were injured on all fronts, Frank Lampard, who became temporary coach, had to play young players and hoped they could show their abilities before the transfer market opened. Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling will be the attacking duo assigned to score against United.
