Manchester United Starting XI Prediction at Chelsea FC

Manchester United travel to Chelsea FC on Sunday in a clash of two English giants battling for two of the coveted top four positions in the Premier League. The two sides are also famous for going head to head in the transfer market over the same targets.

With this huge crunch clash coming up, and a few fitness concerns for the Red Devils, let’s take a look at how United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might shape his first team in this one.

We’re thinking Edinson Cavani will be ready in time, but Scott McTominay will not. The Blues will come into this match more fully fit and opposing manager Thomas Tuchel will have more options and freedom in selecting his team.

So we’ll see if that’s advantageous enough here.
