How Chelsea could up against Manchester United



Edouard Mendy will more likely be in the post for Chelsea and serve as the last wall in case the defence is breach.

The Senegalese has been in fine form and is undoubtedly one of the first names on team sheet.

Thiago Silva who put up an incredible display in midweek against Juventus is set to continue in the middle of the back three, while the ever present will be on the left side of the defence.

Despite starting and impressing in the last two games, Trevoh Chalobah is expected to make way for Andreas Christensen for the game.


The absence of Kante who picked up an injury against Juventus means that Ruben Loftus Cheek will pair Jorginho in central midfield.

Reece James who has been in superb form will continue to play as the right back while Marcos Alonso is expected to replace the injured Chilwell.


Callum Hudson Odoi has temporary sealed his place in the attack of the team and could be rewarded with his 8th consecutive game of the season against Man United.

Hakim Ziyech who appears to be discovering his form could play on the right hand side of the attack with Timo Werner playing as the striker in a 3-4-3 formation.
