Manchester United Send Out Warning Ahead Of Their Clash Against Chelsea

Written By Onyeka Daniel

Tomorrow, two of the biggest clubs in England will be up against each other at the Old Trafford stadium as Manchester United welcome Chelsea to their home ground for round 32 rescheduled game between the two clubs.

More Details

While the two teams have practically nothing to play for in this game as their position for the season is already assured, the rivalry is still expected to come to fore in this game, which is why Manchester United have sent a warning to their fans ahead of the clash.

The Red Devils have written to season-ticket holders warning them against using homophobic chanting during their Premier League match against Chelsea. During previous matches between United and Chelsea, homophobic chants have been directed at the west London club.

This happened during the reverse league fixture at Stamford Bridge earlier this season. At the time, United boss Erik ten Hag was critical of the chant and said, “It doesn’t belong in the stands, I mean the whole stadium.”

Following that incident in October, United said they would work with supporters’ groups “to educate fans on the offence which discriminatory language causes”. Homophobic chanting, though, was again heard during United’s 4-0 FA Cup win over Chelsea at Old Trafford in January.

The Football Association (FA) then added the homophobic chant to its list of rule breaches and said it could pursue action against clubs whose supporters who use it at matches.

Last year, the Crown Prosecution Service confirmed that it considered the term a homophobic slur and therefore a hate crime, leaving those who use it liable to prosecution. United play Chelsea on Thursday, before ending the Premier League campaign with the visit of Fulham on Sunday. Ten Hag’s side then face Manchester City in the FA Cup final on June 3.


Brazilian forward, Neymar Junior could be set for a move to the EPL in the summer as he looks to put a rather disappointing season at PSG behind him and his Brazilian teammate, Casemiro is urging him to join him at Manchester United.

The 31-year-old still has two years on his contract with PSG but he is open to leaving the club this summer and the Ligue 1 side are willing to sell him. Injuries have been a problem for the Brazilian and he has only played 20 Ligue 1 matches this season, scoring 13 goals, with 18 in 29 appearances across all competitions.

Neymar has also been targeted, alongside Lionel Messi, by protesting PSG fans who have been critical of him amid his fitness and form struggles. According to report from France, a number of Premier League clubs are in talks with PSG over signing Neymar, but Manchester United are at the most advanced stage.

But it’s highly dependent on the scenario that Sheikh Jassim assumes ownership of the club as he would reportedly target Neymar as a statement signing for the club if he should succeed in his bid to own the club.

The structure of the deal may prove to be a stumbling block, with Manchester United keen on a loan move for next season, while PSG would prefer to sell the striker permanently.
