Full Chelsea squad revealed for Manchester United clash as Thomas Tuchel dealt injury blows

Chelsea will be looking to continue their fine record against their fellow Premier League ‘big six’ sides this weekend when Manchester United visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.

Only Manchester City have got the better of the Blues so far this season with a draw against Liverpool and victories over Arsenal and Tottenham completing the set so far.

They head into this one as noticeable favourites as well. Michael Carrick has taken to the United dugout on a caretaker basis following the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the wake of a 4-1 loss to Watford last weekend.

However, confidence will have been gained from a 2-0 win against Villarreal on Tuesday, and Thomas Tuchel will be treating them with caution. Jamb result

The German has a number of squad issues to contend with too ahead of the game with as many as four key first-team players potentially missing out.

“Kova [Mateo Kovacic] is still out for the game on Sunday. N’Golo (Kante) twisted his knee a little bit,” Tuchel told his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“He feels quite better since the game but it seems like he will be out for some days. It’s a matter of days, a matter of one week maybe. We still have a little bit of hope but it will be almost a miracle if he makes it, so we think about a week.

“Ben [Chilwell] has a partial injury of his ACL and the decision is to treat it conservatively. The next six weeks will tell the story actually if he makes it and if he will be fully available or if he needs surgery after that.”

Both Chilwell and Kante limped off during the 4-0 thrashing of Juventus in midweek and the fitness of Kai Havertz is also a doubt with the forward missing the midweek clash with a hamstring injury, although he was pictured in training.

Here is the full Chelsea squad that Tuchel will have at his disposal.

Goalkeepers: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli

Defenders: Reece James, Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Marcos Alonso, Trevoh Chalobah, Andreas Christensen, Cesar Azpilicueta

Midfielders: Jorginho, Mason Mount, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Saul Niguez, Ross Barkley

Forwards: Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Callum Hudson-Odoi, Kai Havertz
