In Chelsea's 2-1 defeat to Manchester United, several players' performances suggest they might benefit from some time on the bench in the upcoming game against Everton.
1. Nicolas Jackson
Jackson's contribution was marked by critical errors, including a giveaway that led to Manchester United's first goal. His performance, despite some quality moments, overall suggests a need for reevaluation.

Scott McTominay got Manchester United back to winning ways with a brace against Chelsea.
2. Mykhailo Mudryk
While Mudryk showed promise with an early shot hitting the post and some dynamic runs, his inconsistent performance, characterized by wasted passes, raises doubts about his readiness for the next match.
3, Raheem Sterling
Sterling had an underwhelming game, missing key opportunities and struggling to create significant chances. This performance might necessitate a tactical change for the upcoming fixture.

Following recent performances, some Chelsea supporters expressed dissatisfaction with Pochettino, mainly after the team lost to Nottingham Forest and dropped to 12th place in the Premier League.
4. Enzo Fernandez
Fernandez, involved in the incident leading to United's penalty, failed to dominate the midfield as expected. His limited impact throughout the game suggests reconsideration of his role in the next match.
5. Levi Colwill
As team captain against Manchester United, Colwill showed defensive skills but also vulnerability, particularly noticeable in United's second goal. This performance brings up questions about his leadership and defensive reliability for the upcoming game.
In conclusion, the performances of certain Chelsea players against Manchester United highlight areas for potential improvement.
Nicolas Jackson's mistakes, Mykhailo Mudryk's inconsistency, Raheem Sterling's underperformance, Enzo Fernandez's limited midfield control, and Levi Colwill's defensive vulnerabilities suggest that these players may need to reassess and recalibrate their approach for future games.
Their inclusion in the starting lineup for the upcoming match against Everton could be reconsidered to strengthen the team's overall performance.
