(EFE) – The Manchester United and the Chelsea they failed to break zero at Old Trafford (0-0), a scene that saw the Uruguayan’s debut Edinson cavani, who played the last half hour of the match on the sixth day of the Premier.
The entrance to the pitch of the Uruguayan forward, who has played for Paris Saint Germain in the last seven seasons and who reinforced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team in the past market, did not end up solving the inoperative attack of the locals, who fall in the classification led by Everton.
Cavani, 33, took the field in the 58th minute in the place of Daniel James, at the same time that Frenchman Paul Pogba took over from Spanish Juan Mata.
It was the first decision Soljskaer made in the absence of a goal in a thick duel, without great chances and with two teams more pending not to lose than to add the three points.
United did not profit from their dominance. Marcus Rashford was the main threat to goalkeeper Edouard Mendy, who has snatched the position from Spaniard Kepa Arrizabalaga, condemned for his mistakes and out of the squad due to a shoulder injury.
Chelsea, who drew last Tuesday against Sevilla, did not question the firmness of David De Gea either. He found no arguments for the disbursement by the Germans Timo Werner and Kai Havertz, who formed the visiting attack together with the American Christian Pulisic. All three were substituted in the final stretch. It was not a solution for Frank Lampard’s team, who accumulate two matches in a row without success.
The draw is insufficient for the aspirations of both. Chelsea are increasingly distancing themselves from a leadership they intend and Manchester United is part of the lower zone of the classification, distant from the European zone of the Premier.
