Manchester United will play against Chelsea in the Stamford Bridge next Sunday, 5th of November, in a must win match for both sides, who will be one of the strongest and most tensed matches this season due to many reason.
However, both teams are missing their main players in the midfield, Man United missing Pogba, and Chelsea is missing Kante. In both teams, the absences affected their Premier League and Champions League journey. However, in Chelsea it seems it’s more difficult.
Thibaut Courtois, Chelsea’s goalkeeper, has said that Chelsea is suffering now because of Matic’s absence, and he explains why he wishes Matic can come back.
Thibaut Courtois said:” We know Matic’s qualities, he is a player who gave us the balance last year to win the league.” Courtois continued: ” Our midfield is strong, but when you have two injuries in the midfield, then for sure you will say we miss Matic, he is a quality player and he is doing great in Man United.”
Knowing that Matic scored his first goal with Man United against Benfica, and was one of the most important players this season for Man United. Even with Pogba’s absence, Matic was always the player that makes the difference in the midfield.
