Law of Karma: how Chelsea will beat Manchester United with ease

Mark-man tactics one of the best method for Chelsea to defeat Manchester United,

See reasons below :

Jose Mourinho gave Herrera the most important role on the day, tasking the tenacious Basque midfielder to man-mark Eden Hazard and make his game as tough as possible.

In true Herrera style, he didn't give the winger breathing space and thwarted the undeniable threat he posed, helping United run out 2-0 winners.

The 30-year-old also chipped in with a goal, but his defensive efforts was the main reason his name was heralded around the stadium at full-time.

Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Athletic, Herrera explained the brilliant statement he told Jose Mourinho ahead of marking Hazard out of the game:

"I said, ‘Jose, I am ready if you need me to man-mark him, to follow him everywhere. If he wants to go to the bathroom, I will go with him because I want to win the game’."

Herrera's performance that day epitomised the type of squad player he was and why it was treated as such a big blow when he left for nothing last summer.

United could finally be closing in on his replacement though, as a deal to sign Ajax midfielder Donny van de Beek appears to be edging closer. 

To add to the pain, Herrera has tipped Solskjaer to be better than Jose, and the realisation has been superb

Herrera was asked : "So why is Solskjaer the right man to lead the revolution?"

“He is one of the best people I have ever met in football. Everyone loves him in the dressing room. Everyone wants to fight for him,” said Herrera.

“When you have the players behind you and wanting to fight for you, part of the job is done. I believe in karma and if you are a good person, if you are honest and sincere with the players and the fans, sooner or later it will work.

“I think Ole is the right person because he has qualities and knowledge but, also, he is a great man and a great person.”

After a struggle at the start of the season, followed by a rousing start to Solskjaer’s interim term as boss in December, succeeding Jose Mourinho in December and eventually being appointed permanent manager, United’s campaign went into a tailspin.

Manchester United has defected Chelsea fc 3 times in all the 3 meetings this season, but all the fans are looking forward to the outcome of the semi finals clash between the giants

With the absence of Ngolo Kante that can play a mark man even better than Herrera, who do you think will be helpful to mark man Manchester United star Fernandes Bruno who has been the attacking lord of Manchester United???
