MAN UTD’S second game under the leadership of new boss Michael Carrick is one of their hardest of the season as they take on Chelsea.
The Premier League leaders are in blistering form, having thrashed both Leicester and Juventus, 3-0 and 4-0 respectively, in their last two games.
United got back to winning ways on Tuesday evening as Carrick’s XI beat Villarreal 2-0 to secure the Red Devils a spot in the last-16 of the Champions League.
But the club are still reeling following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, picking up just four points from 21 in their last seven league games.
Chelsea represent one of United’s toughest games of the season, but Carrick’s new defensive strategy may be a tricky one for Blues manager Thomas Tuchel to work out himself.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho were the goal scorers for United on Tuesday night in what was a tame but organised display in Spain.
Tuchel’s side, though, ran rampant against Juve, topping Group H with just a single game of the group stages to go.
