Team News

Reece James, Ngolo Kante, and Wesley Fofana are still on the bench and will nearly certainly not play against the Reds. Mateo Kovacic may likely replace Conor Gallagher in the starting XI for the United match after Gallagher being forced to leave the game in the first half due to illness. Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva did not play against Brentford, but the Brazilian is likely to start against the Red Devils.

Bruno Fernandes was the player of the match against his previous team Tottenham on Wednesday, but Christian Eriksen should start in place of the Portuguese midfielder due to Fernandes‘ outstanding performance.

Despite being a substitute against Tottenham, Cristiano Ronaldo left the field before the game was over. The club has since put him on probation. As the captain is still out of injury and surely not playing more coming games.

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Silva, Chalobah, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Kovacic, Chilwell, Sterling, Mount, Aubameyang

De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, Casemiro, McTominay, Antony, Fernandes, Sancho, Rashford

Chelsea vs Manchester United Prediction

Man United may feel confident of ending Chelsea’s series of clean sheets, despite the fact that it took numerous attempts before beating Lloris on Wednesday. A team more clinical than Aston Villa or Brentford would have done so by this point.

With the exception of the Etihad, performances in big games have been Ten Hag’s bread and butter thus far. However, with Potter making a few crucial adjustments and Wednesday’s efforts taking a toll on Man United in particular.

We say: Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United
