I'm A Manchester United Fan, But Chelsea Will Beat Us Because Of This One Reason - [Opinion].

A rivalry will be renewed on Sunday when Manchester United face Chelsea in a semifinal clash that promises to be thrilling.

The two sides who are locked in a top four battle has met 3 times already this season, with United winning all three encounters.

However, their fourth meeting of the season at Wembley on Sunday will present Chelsea with a real chance of getting one over their fierce rivals which Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is already deeply worried about

The United manager was left displeased about the prospect of facing Chelsea just three days after they played Crystal Palace while Chelsea who won at home to Norwich on Tuesday will have 48 hours more rest than their Sunday opponents.

Of course it's easy to understand the reason behind Solskjaer's unchanged starting 11 for the past four or five matches, but it's really going to hit them real hard this Sunday because nature is more likely to take its toll on Man United players who are set to play their third match in the space of just 7 days whereas Chelsea's last game came on Tuesday in an easy win for them.

The Red Devils who were obviously below their best in their last game at Selhurst Park owing to fatigue was at the receiving end of an officiating luck from VAR who canceled out Jordan Ayew's equalizer and failed to award a penalty to Palace when Zaha was brought down by Victor Lindelof.

But will Manchester United continue to rely on VAR assistance to negotiate wins in this season's run-in?

Perhaps not.

Any fatigue shown tomorrow by United players would be understandable given that they have played 8 times already in the past 28 days, with the same lineup named by the gaffer in their past 5 matches.

It was evidenced in their last game by their lack of celebration after the full time whistle as players like Timothy Fosu-Mensah dropped to the turf to stretch out his legs in a bid to avoid cramps.

The past few matches have indicated signs of fatigue from the Old Trafford outfit, and Frank Lampard's Chelsea will have a better chance of winning the game because of their prolonged rest.

I am a Manchester United fan, but I clearly see Chelsea winning this game.
