Tough Test Awaits Carrick at Stamford Bridge

World's most-followed league, the English Premier League week 13 starts on Saturday afternoon with some mouth-watering matches set to take center stage.

Chelsea are 12 points ahead of Man United who are currently without a coach after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was shown the door on Sunday after the league defeat to Watford. Interim boss Michael Carrick started his reign with a 2-0 win over Villarreal in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, a result that helped United qualify for knock out phase of the competition, at Stamford Bridge however, the United legend will be facing a real test against the reigning UCL champions who put four past Juventus on Tuesday.

Under Thomas Tuchel, Chelsea have proved to be rock solid across all competitions and are favorites heading into the Sunday clash that could open the gap between the two teams to 15 points. A rare positive result for United could increase Carrick’s chances of being handed the interim manager’s role at the club but he will have to produce his A-game to beat a Chelsea side that has proved rock solid at the back and devastating while attacking.

The last time Chelsea beat United in a league assignment was four years ago and this Sunday they have an opportunity to end the barren run. Whichever way the match goes, it could have an impact on United’s search for Ole’s replacement.
