Confirmed lineups: Man Utd vs Chelsea

Manchester United return from Tuesday night’s 2-1 win at Paris Saint-Germain to host Chelsea in the Premier League today.

The Blues were held 0-0 at home by Sevilla in their European tie on the same night whilst Frank Lampard’s side beat us in the FA Cup semi-finals after we did the Premier League double over them last season.

Both teams will be keen for three points at Old Trafford this afternoon after each of us have made a disappointing start.

The two teams are confirmed as:

Manchester United

David de Gea; Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, Scott McTominay, Fred, Bruno Fernandes; Juan Mata, Marcus Rashford, Daniel James

Substitutes: Dean Henderson, Axel Tuanzebe, Nemanja Matic, Donny van de Beek, Paul Pogba, Mason Greenwood, Edinson Cavani

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reverts back to four in defence after going with a 3-4-3 in Paris midweek. Harry Maguire returns to the starting lineup whilst Axel Tuanzebe drops to the bench after an excellent performance in the Champions League.

There’s still no first start for summer signing Donny van de Beek. The Dutch international is joined on the bench by Paul Pogba and Edinson Cavani.

Marcus Rashford is supported by Bruno Fernandes, Daniel James and Juan Mata in attack.


Edouard Mendy; Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Kurt Zouma; Reece James, Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, Ben Chilwell; Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Christian Pulisic

Substitutes: Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Mateo Kovacic, Mason Mount, Hakim Ziyech, Tammy Abraham, Olivier Giroud

Eduoard Mendy returns from injury to take his place between the sticks for the visitors, who appear to be set up in a 3-4-3 formation. Thiago Silva is joined by Cesar Azpilicueta and Kurt Zouma in defence, with Reece James and Ben Chilwell the wingbacks.

Timo Werner scored his first goals for Chelsea in their 3-3 draw with Southampton last weekend. The German is joined by Christian Pulisic and Kai Havertz in attack today.
