The Red Devils will visit Stamford Bridge under their new manager (for the time Being Michael Carrick). Chelsea has been the most consistent team this season under the reign of their new manager Thomas Tuchel. On the other hand after a bright start to the season, Manchester United has faded away with time along with their chances of title contention. United turned their weakness into their strengths, yet they failed to justify their performances under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Maybe the success United dreamed of wasn’t meant to happen under Ole.

Tuchel’s job at Chelsea hasn’t been a cakewalk. He has put in a lot of effort to transform a potentially winning team into a title-winning team. The Blues have conceded 4 goals in the Premier League after 12 games. Their defence is like a citadel which won’t be easy to evade even by the finest of all. Considering United’s current position on both fronts they are going to feel each passing minute on Sunday.

Chelsea vs Manchester United Team News :

Chelsea fans will be disappointed to hear that both Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante have been ruled out of Sunday’s clash. Both of them sustained knee injuries against Juventus in their 4-0 triumph in the Champions League fixture.

Manchester United’s captain Harry Maguire will continue to serve his suspension after receiving a red card against Watford. Paul Pogba picked up a thigh injury during the international break. According to the reports, the Frenchman may not feature again for Manchester United as he looks set for a transfer. Raphael Varane is suffering from a hamstring injury; his return date remains to be unclear. Mason Greenwood is currently suffering from the Coronavirus; he will remain sidelined for the time being.

Match Prediction:

Chelsea is favourite for this tie as Manchester United continues to suffer due to their poor display of management. They are currently not in their best of forms; their search for management issues may impact the mindset of the players on the field. Manchester United will need to dig deep to pull a win just as they did against Villarreal. Fans can watch this fixture on Hotstar, Star Sports Select 1,HD and Star Sports Select 2, HD.
