How Manchester United Could Line Up Against Chelsea

In what many will refer as a ‘Super Sunday’, Chelsea host Manchester United in a mouthwatering Premier League fixture on November 28. The Blues will hope to complement on their form and extend their lead on the Premier League standings and will seek to defeat the Red devils at the Old Trafford. Michael Carrick will have not have Harry Maguire in possession following his sending off in their 4-1 defeat to Watford last weekend.

Varane is still out injured and it is expected that Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly start the match at the back, in front of goalkeeper David de Gea. Also, Alex Telles could also have another chance to play from the left-hand side with Luke Shaw still doubtful due to concussion, while there is virtually no chance of Diogo Dalot displacing Aaron Wan-Bissaka on the right.

However, Paul Pogba is still out due to a thigh injury while Fred is nursing a twisted ankle and may likely result in Scott McTominay and Nemanja Matic partnering up the midfield. Jadon Sando who scored in their 2-1 Champions League win over Villarreal is expected to start against the Blues as well as Mason Greenwood tested positive for coronavirus earlier this month.

With Edinson Cavani still struggling with tendon problems, Cristiano Ronaldo – who has never scored against Chelsea in the Premier League, will act as the focal point of the attack.Meanwhile, Ben Chilwell’s remarkable season could be coming to an end after he sustained a knee injury during Chelsea’s 4-0 win over Juventus in the Champions League. How Chilwell got himself injured The Blues fear that the Englishman has damaged his anterior cruciate ligament which would come as a huge blow to the west London club.

The 24-year-old was helped out of the pitch with 19 minutes left on the clock after jarring his leg when he went past Adrien Rabiot.
