The Chelsea coach admitted that during his time at PSG he did everything he could to sign the Manchester United Portuguese • Tonight they meet
A top-flight battle awaits us tonight in the Premier League, with Chelsea Fifth trying to beat second-placed Manchester United and enter the top four in the table.
The instability of the Blues meets the momentum in which the Red Devils who come to Stamford Bridge are favorites, both because of their scoring ability and mostly thanks to their engine, Bruno Fernandez.
The Portuguese is of course an extraordinary success story, United's best signing in many years.
Ola Gunnar Solskjaer, the Norwegian manager of the team knows that Fernandez is the difference between the high top and a frustrating season outside the top four.
Fernandez's numbers are selling - 34 goals and 19 assists in the past year - and Belshazzi are looking at their purchase and are jealous.

In addition, Chelsea are looking back to their last three league meetings against United and see one big zero in their goal column.
It is doubtful whether the Blues are comforted by the positive billing series for them in these meetings.
In the first round of last season Chelsea were defeated by United 4: 0, in the second round they surrendered 2: 0 and in the first round of this season it ended in 0: 0.
Chelsea coach Thomas Tuchel, under whom Werner is waking up (but still not conquering), admits he would have preferred Fernandes to play on his side today (18:30).
The German manager recently said that during his time as PSG coach, already in 2018, he did quite a bit to land Fernandez in the French champions uniform.
"We made contact, we wanted him, we fought him, but he went the other way," Tuchel said, adding towards the evening: "This is bad news for us that we will have to deal with."
