The Uruguayan striker replaced Juan Mata in the second half of MU’s 0-0 draw against Chelsea in the 6th round of the Premier League. Edinson Cavani was from the 58th minute. At the first touch the ball, the Uruguayan striker almost shook the net Chelsea.
In the remaining time, the former PSG star moves wide in search of opportunity. But cannot make a difference against the opponent’s tight defense.
While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer used the squad to beat Newcastle 4-1 in the previous round. Frank Lampard returned to the three-defender map that made MU astonishing in the FA Cup last season.
The calculations of the two coaches, plus the heavy rain pouring down Old Trafford. He made the match at the heart of the Premier League round 6 take place at a rather slow pace. The two teams played so tightly that the fans had to wait until the 28th minute to see the first shot on target.
Chelsea were the better team in the first half of the game with 65 percent possession. However, MU also showed an annoying counter-attacking style. Fred, McTominay swept the midfield. While Bruno Fernandes and Juan Mata were always ready to launch an attack to the position of striker Marcus Rashford.
On the other side of the front line, Chelsea focused more on the ball on the right wing, where Reece James and Kai Havertz appeared. The visitors looked for opportunities through early crosses.
But the red defense was full of focus to ensure the safety of De Gea’s goal. The first half ended with just 1 time Chelsea sent the ball to the target. Timo Werner was disappointed when he left no significant mark.
The tight stance was maintained by the two teams in the next half. Coach Solskjaer was the one who made the change first. Cavani, Pogba came on the field. But the duo did not leave too many marks, except for the shot to deviate from Cavani’s column in the 59th minute.
