Premier League 2018-19: All eyes on Solksjaer and Lampard as Man Utd host Chelsea
New Delhi l Jagran Sports Desk: In one of the most awaited match of the season, Manchester United will host Chelsea at Old Trafford on Sunday. Both these teams will be looking to get a winning start in the 2019-20 premier league season.
Frank Lampard will take charge in his first competitive game as a manager of Chelsea. Ole Gunner Solkajaer will be starting his second stint as manager with red devils in this season. Manchester United had finished sixth in the league table last season under Solksjaer while Chelsea finished fifth in the previous season under former manager Maurizio Sarri.
Both Lampard and Solksjaer are club legends for their respective teams and have won multiple titles for Chelsea and Manchester United.
Among big players, Romelu Lukaku and Eden Hazard have left their clubs to play for Inter Milan and Real Madrid in the Italian Serie A and Spanish Laliga.
Marcus Rashford has been given Manchester United's important position as a forward while Harry Maguire is the latest addition to prevent defending woes for the reds. But, Lampard had no luxury to buy big players since taking over at Stamford Bridge. He will have to manage with promising young players.
Meanwhile, Jose Mourinho, who was sacked as manager of Manchester United in December 2018 is set to join Sky Sports as Football pundit ahead of the big clash. He will be joining the likes of Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp.
