New version after ManUnited against Chelsea – The German national players Kai Havertz and Timo Werner have missed the at least temporary jump to third place in the Premier League with Chelsea. In the prestige duel at record champions Manchester United, the Londoners had to be content with a 0-0 on Saturday.
Guardiola leaves points
With nine points from six games, Chelsea continued their moderate start to the season. ManUnited is also not yet on target with seven points from five games. Champions Liverpool FC and team manager Jürgen Klopp will receive Sheffield United from 9 p.m. (in the live ticker on t-online) and with a victory they can draw level with leaders Everton FC on points at least until Sunday.
In a game at Old Trafford with few highlights, Havertz and Werner, who had switched to the Blues in the summer, were in the starting line-up and were replaced together in the 72nd minute. Defender Antonio Rüdiger, on whom Chelsea team manager Frank Lampard hardly counts, was in the league squad for the second time but was again without a competitive minute.
Previously, Manchester City and national player Ilkay Gündogan had missed their second win in a row on Saturday and are still stuck in the middle of the table. The team of team manager Pep Guardiola came at West Ham United not more than 1: 1 (0: 1).
England’s young star Phil Foden (51.) scored to compensate for the guests, where Gündogan was in the starting line-up for the first time in the current championship. The ex-Dortmund had a corona infection slowed down at the beginning of the season. West Ham, which, like ManCity, has eight points, took the lead thanks to an overhead kick from Michail Antonio (18th).
