Manchester United News and Form
When the Red Devils made the safe choice of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to replace Jose Mourinho, the most seemed like a stroke of genius. The Red Devils hit their stride under the new manager, but then the bubble burst. Badly. United posted just a W3 D2 L5 record in their last ten league games of the season. So it has been a summer of reassessment and rebuilding.
Solskjaer is keen to get a young side going, full of running and swashbuckling style. That’s why he has offloaded Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan. There hasn’t been too much changing for them with only Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Harry Maguire coming into their defence. Winger Daniel James is one for the future. Can Solksjaer turn around the club once again with what he now has?
Man Utd posted a sixth-place finish in the top flight last season, with a W10 D6 L3 record at home. They failed to win any of their final three home games, a loss against Man City and a draw with Chelsea in that sequence. The Red Devils won just one of twelve games against the other top seven finishers last season. They did average 1.74 goals per home game with 68% of fixtures at Old Trafford going over 2.5 goals.

Chelsea News and Form
Despite all their problems last season, it was not a bad campaign from Chelsea at the end of the day. They won the Europa League and managed to grab a third-place finish in the top flight as well. Their away record was W9 D3 L7 but they did have a tough time on their travels against the better teams in the league. They posted a winless D3 L6 record in their nine games against the other top-ten finishers.
The Blues only averaged 1.26 goals per away game last season which was a low output. They failed to score in any of their final five away losses last term. They have a new manager Frank Lampard in charge and they can’t sign players because of a transfer ban. So Lampard is going to have to work with what he was left with and try and use some of the youth at the club because they have the Champions League to contend with as well.
Six of their nine away wins last season were by one goal margin only, but six of their seven road losses were by a margin of at least two goals. They were level at the halftime break in 10 of their 19 road games. They were struggling for a cutting edge up front last season and with Eden Hazard gone, that’s a lot to try and make up for. They’re going to be relying on Olivier Giroud, Michy Batshuayi or Tammy Abraham to come good.
