EPL: Chelsea vs Man United Match Talking Point
Weekend games after Champions League involvement have not always produced the desired results this season, despite all being at the Bridge. The previous three were a draw with Arsenal, a defeat by Manchester City, and a 4-2 win against Watford that looked in peril at 1-2 down.
However, after 64 games in charge Antonio Conte has 47 victories to his credit. Only Jose Mourinho in his first spell at the Bridge can match that 73 per cent win rate: another league-title-winner Carlo Ancelotti achieved 45 and Mourinho, second time around, 40.
Chelsea-Man United games have attracted huge crowds throughout the past 112 years since they first met. The 80,827 last month at Wembley for Tottenham vs Liverpool was still short of the highest English league attendance set by Sunday’s visitors to Stamford Bridge when they hosted Arsenal seven decades ago.
Second highest remains the Pensioners’ epic crowd of 82,905, recorded on 12 October 1935 and also against Arsenal, which stood as a record for over 12 years. Man United pipped it by a few hundred on 17 January 1948 in a game played at Maine Road (Old Trafford was still recovering from the actions of the Luftwaffe in the War), when 83,260 spectators were present.
Arguably, the most impressive of all was the Good Friday crowd of 67,000 that watched Division Two hopefuls Chelsea vs Man United play out a 1-1 draw at the Bridge way back in 1906.
One hundred years ago, news arrived at Stamford Bridge that Scots-born half-back George Kennedy had succumbed to wounds, sustained at the bloodthirsty battle of Passchendaele, the third battle of Ypres, on 16 November 1917. He was 35 years old, and one of seven of the club’s serving or former players, along with countless supporters of the Pensioners, killed in the ‘war to end all wars’.
