Despite the fact Manchester United are struggling, they will definitely give Chelsea a very tough competition on Thursday. Thomas Tuchel will need to find a way to stop Cristiano Ronaldo from scoring. The Portuguese winger has scored 90 percent of Manchester United goals in the last three games. This is the reason why Tuchel will want to limit Cristiano Ronaldo’s activity in the box by combining Chalobah, Rudiger and Silva in the central defense. This will help Chelsea to defend solidly in the back, as their full-backs will venture deep into the midfield to stop Manchester United attack from the flanks
