Chelsea will look to continue their fine form and keep their lead at the top of the Premier League table when they host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

The Blues have won five of their last six league games and are three points clear of second-placed Manchester City after defeating Leicester City 3-0 last weekend.

Man United have had completely different fortunes and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was finally sacked as manager after another embarrassing defeat away to Watford last weekend, with Michael Carrick currently taking charge until a replacement is found.

The Red Devils have a big task on their hands but a win would help to turn things around and would keep them in the chase for the top four.

Both sides are coming off the back of midweek Champions League commitments, so a few changes could be made in order to freshen things up ahead of this game.

Team news

Chelsea have overcome their difficult injury spell in the past week and have welcomed a number of players back to the squad over the past two games, but still have four injury doubts ahead of this weekend.

Romelu Lukaku returned to the bench as an unused substitute against Juventus in midweek, but the game came too early for Kai Havertz (thigh), although he may be back for United's visit.

N'Golo Kante and Ben Chilwell were both substituted on Tuesday with knee injuries and could be doubts for Sunday, while Mateo Kovacic (thigh) remains out.

Luke Shaw could finally make his return to the United squad against Chelsea

Michael Carrick left behind Luke Shaw (concussion) for the midweek Champions League trip to face Villarreal but he could be ready to return against Chelsea, although Mason Greenwood is still isolating for Covid-19.

Raphael Varane and Paul Pogba (both thigh) remain out for the foreseeable future, while Edinson Cavani was not in the squad in midweek due to ongoing recovery for a tendon problem and it remains to be seen as to when he’ll return. Harry Maguire is out as he will serve the suspension he picked up against Watford last weekend.
