Manchester United and Chelsea will lock their horns in their 11th game of the season at Stamford Bridge tonight. So far, both teams have had similar results in this campaign.
The Red Devils are currently ranked 5th on the rankings with 19 points, won 6, lost 3 and drew 1 in 10 matches in this tournament. They lost their first two league games under Erik ten Hag, but have since found form.
Similarly, the Blues had a turbulent start to the season, losing 2 and drawing 1 in their first 6 matches in the league. However, they have remained unbeaten in all competitions since replacing Thomas Tuchel with Graham Potter last month.
Coming up to the game at Stamford Bridge, Evra shows how both teams are in similar situations under new managers. Therefore, the former left-back expects the match to be an interesting one. He wrote in Betfair column:
“This game is going to be very interesting. We have two great managers and I find it to be a really open game because they are both in very similar situations.”
Evra believes Potter is turning things around for the Blues after they had a bad start to the season under Tuchel. He added:
“When Thomas Tuchel was at Chelsea everyone said their season was turning into a disaster but with Graham Potter you can see it’s a learning process for them.”
However, the Manchester United legend went on to predict a 2-1 win for the Reds in London today. He say:
“You can see that both Manchester United and Chelsea want to get back to the top but they have to be patient.”
“Ten Hag is now used to the Premier League and Chelsea are another team under Potter so It’s an unpredictable game, but I will win for Man United. Predict the score 1-2. “
If Evra’s prediction is correct, Potter will suffer his first defeat as manager of the Blues.
