Man Utd vs Chelsea: Victor Lindelof reveals tactics to STOP Eden Hazard in crunch clash


Eden Hazard has been one of the players of the season so far, contributing to 29 goals – the most in the league.

Hazard is also one goal away from his best ever Premier League season tally of 17.

Although Chelsea have been in pretty average form in 2019, Hazard has been their one shining light.

Lindelof, especially since Solskjaer took over a interim boss in December, has arguably been United’s most consistent defender.

And ahead of their mega clash, Lindelof has been speaking about how to stop Chelsea’s Belgian wizard.

“Don’t give him too much space because he will do something great, he’s a fantastic player,” Lindelof told the United Review.

“He’s shown that for a lot of years now.

“You have to stay close to him and don’t let him have any space with the ball facing our goal.”

Lindelof then mentioned that Chelsea were a team full of special players who can create something from nothing.

“They’re just a very good team with some fantastic players,” the Swede added.

“Even if they have a bad day, they still have very good individual players who can create chances from almost nothing

“They’re very good in possession so you have to be really focused when you’re defending.

“You can’t give them too much space. They’re a good team but we’ll be ready for this game.”

The last time Chelsea and United faced each other was in the FA Cup in February.

Solskjaer’s side came out on top with a 2-0 victory before being knocked out in the next round by Wolves.

Chelsea remain in the Europa League where they come up against Eintracht Frankfurt in the semi-finals.
