Despite this, Mauricio Pochettino believes that they should still be in 11th place, as their finishing in front of goal is wasteful.

United’s average shots faced per game is a concerning 17.2, which is second only to Sheffield United and Luton Town. Additionally, United’s expected goals against is the fifth highest in the league, indicating that the shots they concede are of high quality.

Chelsea’s strong underlying numbers in creating chances suggest that their league position does not accurately reflect their performance on the pitch. On the other hand, Manchester United’s disappointing statistics suggest that their position in the table may not accurately represent their overall play. The clash between the two teams at Stamford Bridge on Thursday will likely showcase a battle between Chelsea’s attacking prowess and United’s defensive vulnerabilities.
