Confirmed lineups: Chelsea vs Man Utd

Manchester United are in EFL Cup fourth round action at Stamford Bridge this evening.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer mastered us to a 4-0 thrashing of Chelsea at Old Trafford on the opening game of the Premier League season back in August, but the West London club have since found their form.

The United boss has named more regulars in his starting lineup than Frank Lampard this evening.

The two teams for this evening’s game are confirmed as:

Manchester United

Sergio Romero; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Marcos Rojo, Brandon Williams; Scott McTominay, Fred; Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James

Substitutes: Lee Grant, Phil Jones, Ashley Young, James Garner, Andreas Pereira, Juan Mata, Anthony Martial

David de Gea is given a rest tonight as Sergio Romero is our cup goalkeeper.

It appears Ole is going with a back five as Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire and Marcos Rojo all start, whilst Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Brandon Williams are full-backs.

Jesse Lingard is back from injury to start, probably behind a front two of Marcus Rashford and Daniel James. Anthony Martial is on the bench.


Willy Caballero; Reece James, Kurt Zouma, Marc Guehi, Marcos Alonso; Billy Gilmour, Jorginho; Callum Hudson-Odoi, Mateo Kovacic, Christian Pulisic; Michy Batshuayi

Substitutes: Jamie Cumming, Cesar Azpilicueta, Tariq Lamptey, Mason Mount, Pedro, Olivier Giroud, Tammy Abraham

Frank Lampard names youngsters Reece James and Marc Guehi as starters in his defence, in front of goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

There’s also a start for academy product Billy Gilmour in midfield, alongside Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic.

The weekend’s hat-trick hero, Christian Pulisic, along with Michy Batshuayi and Callum Hudson-Odoi in attack.
