Chelsea vs Manchester United confirmed line-ups: Team news ahead of Premier League fixture today

Chelsea welcome Manchester United to Stamford Bridge in the Premier League on Sunday. 

The Blues come into this fixture in good spirits after a dramatic win against Atletico Madrid in Spain. 

Thomas Tuchel’s side were inspired by Olivier Giroud’s magnificent overhead kick, and they will need a similar piece of brilliance to defeat Manchester United. 

The Red Devils are unbeaten in a month across all competitions and are desperate to close the gap on Manchester City at the top of the league.

Thiago Silva is Chelsea’s only injury concern ahead of the visit of Manchester United, as the Brazilian defender has been out with a thigh problem. 

Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay could all return forUnited. Cavani and van de Beek have missed the past three matches due to muscle issues, while McTominay was withdrawn during their win at Sociedad. Daniel James will also be assessed, but Juan Mata, Paul Pogba and Phil Jones are out. 

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell; Ziyech, Giroud, Mount

Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; James, Fernandes, Rashford; Greenwood

Odds: 

Chelsea: 5/4 

Draw: 23/10 

Manchester United: 12/5 

Both sides will be desperate for all three points, and Chelsea’s lack of a cutting edge combined with Manchester United’s ability to concede out of nothing could make for an entertaining watch – but I can’t split the two sides. 1-1 draw.
