Why Chelsea’s fans are already concerned with their chances vs Man United

Why Chelsea’s fans are already concerned with their chances vs Man United

 

The Chelsea faithful have taken to social media in their numbers on Monday evening, to react to news of the refereeing appointment for the club’s meeting with Manchester United.

United lie in wait

Thomas Tuchel’s men will of course see out a hectic week’s work on the back of the international break next weekend.

After making short work of Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday, the Blues are set to return to action on Tuesday night, in a Champions League group stage showdown with Italian giants Juventus.

And, from there, the high-profile fixtures only continue to pile up, as Manchester United prepare for a trip to Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening.

The European champions will welcome the currently manager-less Red Devils to west London with one thing on their minds – maintaining the club’s spot atop the Premier League table.

As things stand, Tuchel and co. sit three points clear of 2nd-placed Manchester City in the English top-flight, owing to 29 points secured from their twelve outings thus far.

‘Expect to be disappointed’

As outlined above, however, despite almost a full week remaining before their side lock horns with Man United, this evening, the Chelsea faithful have begun to express concerns over the chances of securing a positive result.

The reason? The appointment of Anthony Taylor to take charge of proceedings.

Those of a Blues persuasion have long been of the opinion that Taylor has it out for the club, with the added factor of the referee hailing from Manchester having culminated in quite the backlash across social media.
