If one goes back and watches Timo Werner at RBL, you'll notice that nearly all of his goals come from the left-channel. He moves from the interior left flank to the centre, but he needs space because he does it through pace, not tight spaces. I'm convinced that Giroud as the centre with Werner moving through the left would kill Wan-Bissaka and the right sided United centrehalf. But Werner also likes to smash that fucking ball as hard as he can so he does sky it and miss the target a lot. @Devil-Dick Willie I can see why you'd say he'd flop. He is very much brute force over guile, but that is England in a nutshell

 

France won the WC with Giroud as one half of a strike team but I don't think Chelsea have the personal to win a midfield battle with only two centremids. Honestly five at the back, three mf, and three forwards may be that works? But I couldn't tell you if that would only make the CBs stupider than they already are.

United will probably play both Rashford and James up top, considering Cavani probably isn't up to speed. And if that's the case, we already know what their game plan is.

His first goal against Saints came from the left side with Havertz operating as a CF. This is essentially what Lampard wants. Issue is we have no balance in our CM's to play a double pivot. 

Will need a disciplined performance much like against Sevilla if we want to get anything here. Old Trafford been our bogey ground for years. 

 

Mendy

James--Silva--Zouma--Chilwell

Kante--Kovacic

CHO----------------Pulisic

Havertz----Werner

How did that from Maguire not even get reviewed and now they're looking at a penalty for Man Utd for nothing?

Shaw vs Reece James, who’ll come out as gay first?

He gets a free pass for being Phil's bald head.

If they had awarded a penalty for that and nothing for the Maguire incident I would have been fuming...

What is it with VAR never looking at Maguire when he assaults our players? 
 

Awful game of football.

This is where they need to be accountable for decisions... What would be wrong with the VAR official talking to the commentary team to explain why they didn't give anything or even review it during half time??? As long as they stay hidden in a dark room they can effectively do as they bloody please on any given day...

Because they will bend every fucking rule possible if it means Manchester Utd have the possibility of being awarded a penalty. 

Its so blatantly obvious and its becoming beyond embarrassing.

Cavani run at the near post. He’s covered more ground already, than Martial has all season.

Mendy does very well there. Rashford's shot was goal-bound.

Fair ending to the game I don't think either team really deserved to win here.

Few points. 
 

1. Had Kepa played, United win this 2-0. 

2. Thiago Silva at 36 is still quality. 

3. Reece James should be our #1 RB. 

4. Plus side, second clean sheet in a row. 

5. Negative side, we still have yet to find balance between defense/attack. Neither can look good simultaneously. 

6. Awful game of football but both sides really organised and were obviously looking for defensive improvements over recent calamities.

Well... about as exciting as going through the neighbours holiday photo album that was... 

The good news is we must be the first team to prevent United getting a penalty since the beginning of last season.. 

Also we kept another clean sheet.. 

The bad news is we are about as threatening as soft toy up front... second game in a row, Maybe it's Lampard's plan to have us 0-0 draw our way in to the top 4 spots..
