Manchester United Starting XI Prediction vs Chelsea FC


The biggest match of the Premier League weekend features Jose Mourinho making his third trip back to Chelsea as boss of the opposition. Yes, he’s been officially charged by the Football Association for offensive comments made in the last league fixture versus Newcastle United, but it appears that any touchline ban he may receive won’t be enacted until after the Manchester United and Chelsea clash.

It’s not official as of yet, but it looks likely that he’ll be in his usual post for Saturday’s game; the league’s headliner fixture.

In a season that has been filled with stress and strife, discontent and discord, there would be no sweeter win for Mourinho than this one here, at the club which let him go twice. As Mourinho, will be the first to tell you- he’s led them to glory which was unprecedented for the club.

Given all the speculation about his potential dismissal, a win here would certainly be big in regards to strengthening his job security. Let’s take a look at who he might select in his first team
