No goals and further from the City

The duel was marked by an action by VAR in the first half, when it was decided not to award a penalty in favor of United by Hudson-Odoi.


Manchester United is second in the Premier League, the best of all teams other than City, but when it comes to facing their rivals of the theoretical 'Big Six', the result is repeated over and over again: 0-0 against Liverpool, 0-0 against Arsenal, 0-0 against Manchester City and 0-0, this afternoon, at Stamford Bridge, against a Chelsea that remains without conceding goals at home in the stage of Thomas Tuchel, a message from Notice to all Atlético de Madrid footballers. Although the 'blues' do not know defeat with the German coach at the helm - and they have only conceded two goals in total - their fifth position does not deceive: they have room for improvement.

The duel was marked by an action by the VAR in the first half, when it was decided not to call a penalty in favor of Manchester United by the hands of Hudson-Odoi. The English footballer was chosen to occupy the position of right winger and his movement in the area made Chelsea tremble for a few seconds. The best was Mount again, leader of this team, even of this project despite the signings, who had the clearest opportunity in the second half when he crossed the middle of the field, cut in the area and McTominay cut his shot. Before, Ziyech had already tested De Gea with a good first shot, but the Spanish goalkeeper was very confident. Giroud also had his, again starting ahead of an Abraham who was not even on the bench, but the French did not get to finish off a good cross from Hudson-Odoi.

In attack, the Red Devils were not successful. Solskjaer opted for Greenwood to fill the position of nine in the absence of Cavani, while Martial remained on the bench. But neither Rashford nor Bruno Fernandes, the usual creators of danger in Manchester United, could break the local defense, remaining 12 points behind Manchester City but confirming themselves as one of the strongest teams in the championship.
