A Street Derby
The A Street Derby was a game played between Chelsea and Manchester United on the 27th day of July, 2023. Manchester United ended up victorious 5-4. The game was called the A Street Derby because the players met at A Street, but it was played at the renovated Playfields Park. While there has been eager anticipation of a Derby Pt 2, it has never come. However, this might change in the summer of 2024.
