Chelsea vs Manchester United team news:
The home team will be missing Victor Moses for sure. Gary Cahill is fit and is expected to return to the starting lineup. The major concern of the boss, however, will be about the availability of N’Golo Kante. The midfielder has been out with a hamstring injury, but his inclusion might prove to be very crucial for Chelsea.
Manchester United, on the contrary, are going to miss a lot of first team names. Paul Pogba, Marouane Fellaini, Michael Carrick, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo are all out. Jesse Lingard also got a back problem during the last match against Benfica and he will not start the proceedings on Sunday.
Following are the possible lineups of the two teams.
Ahead of the big fixture, Antonio Conte said, “We are struggling a lot, because we are facing a lot of important problems. To solve these problems is not simple. In this moment you can see if you are a winner or a loser. It’s important to show our character, to be strong, to face the problem in the right way.”
On the other hand, Mourinho was more vocal, “I have to admit it’s a little bit different but in the end I want to win like I did with Inter. They want to win like they did last season and it’s just one more day.
He further replied on his return to the Bridge, “In a couple of years it will be even more natural and in four or five years probably no one will remember that I was Chelsea manager and it becomes absolutely normal. It isn’t a big thing. It’s normal, it’s football, it’s professionalism. One day you are in one club, the next day you’re in another club.
“It’s a big thing because it’s a big match, because it’s a big opponent, because it’s the champions. It’s one of these matches between the top teams in the country. But from the emotional point of view, it’s just one more game,” he added.
Chelsea vs Manchester United will kick off on Sunday, at 4:30pm GMT (10:30am Central time, 10pm Indian time), and will be broadcast live at Sky Sports 1 in the UK, NBCSN in the USA and in Star Sports Select HD1 in India. For live streaming links, please send a message to our official Facebook page.
