3 talking points from a stalemate between Chelsea and Manchester United

Manchester United and Chelsea played out a goalless draw on Sunday, in a result that will not please either of the two sets of fans.

In what was expected to be a fierce clash between the two old time rivals in the English capital, Manchester United and Chelsea played out a 0-0 draw at the Stamford Bride on Sunday night.

Both teams lacked intent in the first half and except a chance or two, there was not much quality to go by in the final third.

A point does no harm to either of the two managers. Thomas Tuchel continued his unbeaten run after taking over as the manager of the Blues. For Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, it was yet another unbeaten match away from home in the Premier League. The visitors moved a point clear of Leicester City, and are sitting on the second place with 50 points.

As for the home side, they maintained their position on the league table and are currently sitting on the fifth spot with 44 points, with just one point off the fourth placed, West Ham.

Here’s a look at the three talking points from the draw.

The Red Devils, placed second in the Premier League Table are yet to defeat one of the traditional top six clubs in the ongoing campaign. United have played out a combined of five stalemates against the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool, as well as a 6-1 thumping at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur.

Manchester United certainly do have the quality to produce top notch football on a given match-day, however this season their talismanic have failed to show up during the big games. The likes of Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford have often gone missing in such vital games, but defensive performances by the likes of Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw have been helpful.
