Chelsea vs Manchester match Preview

Buoyed by the news of Ralf Rangnick’s imminent appointment, Manchester United travel to Chelsea for Sunday afternoon’s tantalising Premier League encounter. infoguidenigeria

The West London giants remain top of the pile with 29 points from their opening 12 games, whereas Michael Carrick’s side sit seven places and 12 points below the European champions.

Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, and Callum Hudson-Odoi all struck for the Blues before Timo Werner came off the bench to round off the scoring on his comeback from injury, which has seen Chelsea confirm their rightful place in the last-16 of the tournament.

Thomas Tuchel’s side’s Premier League fortunes also improved following their 1-1 draw with Burnley before the international break, as the scintillating Blues saw off Leicester City 3-0 at the King Power, with former Foxes lynchpin N’Golo Kante scoring the pick of the bunch.

Victory over Juventus marked Chelsea’s ninth win from 10 in all competitions, and the league leaders remain three points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table having conceded a league-low four goals all season – three of which have come at home, though.

Statistics has it that five of Solskjaer’s last seven Premier League games in charge of Man United ended in defeat, and the Red Devils have failed to win back-to-back games on the road across all competitions this term – with a 2-1 defeat to Young Boys sandwiched in between top-flight successes at Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United.

History may be on the Red Devils’ side, though, as they are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League meetings with Chelsea – keeping clean sheets in each of their last four – although both highly-anticipated games last term ended goallessly. Jamb result

Team news

According to the recent report from sportsmole.co, there are fears that Ben Chilwell could be facing several months on the sidelines after damaging his ACL in the win over Juventus, while N’Golo Kante also suffered a knee injury in that fixture.

Kante’s injury is not as serious but he is likely to miss out here alongside Mateo Kovacic, and Kai Havertz remains a doubt with a hamstring strain, but Romelu Lukaku is ready to lead the line against his former employers.

Marcos Alonso and Ruben Loftus-Cheek should benefit from Chilwell and Kante’s absences this week, and Tuchel has a big call to make over Chalobah as the experienced Cesar Azpilicueta aims to return to the backline.

As for Man United, Harry Maguire saw red in the humiliation at Vicarage Road and will not be available here, with Raphael Varane’s injury allowing Eric Bailly the chance to earn a rare start in defence.

Sportsmole.co brought to our notice that the likes of Paul Pogba remains out for the long term, and doubts persist over Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, and the COVID-positive Mason Greenwood, although Jadon Sancho will aim to hold his spot on the right regardless after finally opening his United account in midweek.

Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford started on the bench against Villarreal, but both players will surely rejoin their teammates in the final third as Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial drop out.

Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Mount, Hudson-Odoi; Lukaku

Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo

Prediction: Chelsea 2-0 Manchester United
