Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be confident going into the match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this weekend, despite the Blues having picked up form under new head coach Thomas Tuchel.
The Red Devils remain unbeaten away from home in the Premier League this season, and they will be keen to put down a marker with another good display on the road on Sunday.
In terms of team news, Solskjaer is sweating over the fitness of a number of players ahead of the game. Donny van de Beek, Edinson Cavani and Scott McTominary are all doubts, while Daniel James will need to be assessed after picking up a muscular injury against Real Sociedad last night.
Two players who will definitely be missing are Paul Pogba (thigh) and Phil Jones (knee), with both thought to be some way from returning to full fitness.
Manchester United’s Predicted XI To Face Chelsea:
De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, Fernandes, Matic, Greenwood, Martial, Rashford
Chelsea have just one injury concern heading into the match at Old Trafford. Centre-back Thiago Silva is a doubt after taking a while to recover from a thigh strain he sustained against Tottenham at the start of the month.
Chelsea’s Predicted XI:
Mendy, James, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Alonso, Kovacic, Jorginho, Mount, Giroud, Werner
The bookmakers have made Chelsea the slight favourites with Betfair pricing them at 13/10 for the win. A draw is 12/5 with Bet 365 while a United victory is also 12/5 at Betway.
Predicted Score – 0-0
