For the first time in eight years, Manchester United have fallen out of the top three in the richest clubs in the world list.

Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Sheffield United

When Manchester United host Sheffield United in midweek we have an idea of what kind of team the home side will be putting out there. You can expect a lot of starters, but also some reserves as Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows a first versus last in the league clash is a chance for some squad rotation.

Paul Pogba will probably be given the night off, as will Victor Lindelof, who has been playing through pain all season long. Maybe Dean Henderson gets a go against his former again in between the sticks?

Chelsea FC Starting XI Prediction vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

A new era begins at Chelsea, and it’ll start with a visit from Wolverhampton Wanderers on Wednesday night. Frank Lampard is terminated, after just one season and a half. His replacement, himself fired by Paris Saint-Germain just before Christmas, is Thomas Tuchel.

Reports had indicated that Roman Abramovich wanted to hire somebody who speaks German and Tuchel does indeed possess that trait. Perhaps he can be the Havertz and Werner whisperer then? Maybe he’ll get the most out of these two high priced German internationals acquired in the summer? Lampard obviously could not.

The Roman Abramovich era at Chelsea has now seen nine managers fired, and with Jose Mourinho getting the axe twice, so it’s ten dismissals in total. Frank Lampard became the latest in this long line, as the club announced his termination about three hours ago.

While it’s easy to argue that me might have been treated unfairly, and he deserved more time, don’t cry too hard for him. He’ll get a very nice and quite lucrative payout. Chelsea have already lined up their replacement, Thomas Tuchel, according to multiple reports.
