The FourFourTwo Preview: Man United vs Chelsea

Premier League | Old Trafford | Mon 26 Aug | 8pm

Billed as… 

Heavyweight showdown between two teams expected to challenge for the title.

The lowdown

David Moyes leads his team out at Old Trafford for the first time in a competitive fixture as Manchester United entertain Chelsea, in an early-season showdown that should tell us much about both sides.

Moyes' first game in charge went off without a hitch; the champions showed no signs of the wheels falling off in game one of the post-Ferguson era, registering a resounding 4-1 win at Swansea.

Robin van Persie looked menacing as ever, scoring two quality goals, Danny Welbeck doubled his entire goal tally for last season inside 90 minutes and even want-away striker Wayne Rooney, who's had his head turned by Chelsea, managed to swivel it back round long enough to notch two assists. After a botched summer in the transfer market, this was a reminder that the champions still ooze class where it matters - on the pitch.

At Chelsea it's a case of 'meet the new boss, same as the old boss', and Jose Mourinho has wasted little time in kicking back into the swing of things at Stamford Bridge. Two wins from his first two games against Hull (2-0) and Aston Villa (2-1) make the Blues the early pacesetters. Armed with an alarming array of artful attackers buzzing busily behind a lone striker, Chelsea already look like a side to be feared. Hull were casually dispatched and Villa seen off eventually, but bigger challenges are to come - starting on Monday at Old Trafford.

Team news

Manchester United have several injuries to contend with heading into this game, but Jonny Evans is approaching fitness again after an illness, while Wayne Rooney will hope to shrug off a minor calf problem. Nani, Ashley Young, Rafael, Javier Hernandez and Darren Fletcher miss out. 

Chelsea's treatment room is far more spacious. David Luiz is Mourinho's only major concern at present and the Brazilian is expected to recover from a hamstring injury.

Player to Watch: Danny Welbeck 

The England international came under heavy scrutiny last season after posting a goal record that left much to be desired - just one league goal all season. Two goals on the opening day will certainly calm his nerves on that front, but what is often overlooked by many is the all-round contribution the 22-year old offers.

Welbeck has a fierce work rate in attack and plays the defensive forward role well; pressing from the front, tracking opposition runners and generally sacrificing himself for the team without fuss.

Danny Welbeck

The Swansea game was a perfect example of this. Welbeck made more ball recoveries than any other United player, many of them in deep defensive positions, and the third most interceptions of any player on the field after Michael Carrick and Rio Ferdinand.

Sir Alex Ferguson's now famous decision to drop Wayne Rooney against Real Madrid last season was clearly with this in mind, and Welbeck's willingness to toil for the cause will be a useful weapon for Moyes. Particularly against a Chelsea side with frightening speed and efficiency in transitions.

The managers

For the first time in his managerial career David Moyes enters a game against one of the league's big guns without the tag of plucky underdog. No longer will a point be 'hard-fought' or victory 'ripping up the form guide'. At United, Moyes is expected to win - and win well. 

This will bring its own challenges for the Scotsman. Moyes is yet to beat Jose Mourinho in a league game; their eight meetings when he was at Everton yielded 5 wins in Chelsea's favour and 3 draws.

Pulaujudi.com Master Agen Judi Bola Online Terbaik dan Terpercaya di Indonesia – Arsène Wenger kini tak perlu lagi dibikin ribet oleh masalah resleting jaketnya. Problem ini sedianya sepele, tapi kadang membuat nakhoda Arsenalitu kesal setiap kali kesulitan mengancingkan resleting jaket lamanya.

Musim sebelumnya, Sbobet sering terlihat kesulitan, baik saat berdiri di pinggir lapangan, maupun sedang terduduk di bench, hanya untuk mengancingkan resleting jaket Nike-nya (Indomasterbola.com Agen Judi Bola, Taruhan Bola Terbaik dan Terpercaya).

Kerap kali, rekaman Wenger itu bahkan dijadikan candaan dan bahkan pem-bully-an di beragam media sosial.

Tapi kini problem itu sudah terpecahkan. Puma sebagai apparel baru Arsenal musim ini, menyediakan jaket dengan resleting yang lebih inovatif. Kini, Wenger tak lagi harus kerepotan mengancingkan resleting jaket panjangnya hingga ke leher demi menahan udara dingin.

Jaket baru dari JagadPoker.com Agen Texas Poker & Domino Online Indonesia Terpercaya ini sedikit berbeda dalam hal resletingnya. Tak seperti jaket-jaket pada lazimnya, jaket yang disediakan Puma ini punya kait resleting ganda.

Kait bawah untuk menyatukan dua rel resleting, sementara satu kait di atasnya yang saling tersambung dengan kait bawahnya, berguna untuk memudahkan Wenger menaikkan resletingnya.

“Di BOLAWIN88.COM BANDAR TARUHAN AGEN JUDI BOLA CASINO POKER DOMINO BOLATANGKAS DAN TOGEL ONLINE TERPERCAYA INDONESIA, kami tahu bahwa sepakbola tidak bisa diprediksi. Anda harus siap untuk hal apapun, baik itu lawan yang berat maupun cuaca yang buruk,” papar Puma dalam komersial barunya.

“Ada banyak macam hal yang bisa mengubah pertandingan. Jika Anda seorang pelatih, Anda butuh fokus. Anda tak bisa membiarkan apapun memecah fokus Anda, termasuk masalah resleting,” lanjut pernyataan apparel asal JINPOKER.COM Agen Judi Poker Online dan Domino Online Indonesia Terpercaya itu.
