Unstoppable force encounters immovable object at Stamford Bridge

Despite their disappointing draw with Burnley, Chelsea’s manager Mauricio Pochettino maintains that they should be in fourth place in the Premier League according to the data. However, with their current 11th place standing and facing a tough match against Manchester United, they could drop even further.

The draw against Burnley saw Chelsea rise to fourth place in the league in terms of expected goals per match, with a total of two expected goals. This highlights the wastefulness of Chelsea in front of goal as they were previously sixth in this metric.

In contrast, Manchester United has been struggling defensively, giving away an average of 17.2 shots per game – the second-worst in the league. Additionally, their expected goals against is also high, ranking them fifth in the league. While United’s league position may not reflect their poor defensive performance, Chelsea’s position near the bottom of the table does not reflect the chances they create during matches.

The upcoming match between Chelsea and Manchester United at Stamford Bridge will be an interesting clash as Pochettino’s attacking force comes up against Ten Hag’s defensive setup. It remains to be seen which side will come out on top in this encounter.
