Here is how Chelsea could lineup against Manchester United on Sunday.
Frank Lampard will take his side to play Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday. There was a managerial change in the summer saw Maurizio Sarri forcing his way out to see Lampard take up the job.
It was a pretty risk job to take because of the average squad and no transfer budget to work on. Additionally, the Blues’ best player Eden Hazard left the club to Real Madrid for 88 million. Despite it, Christian Pulisic and Mateo Kovacic, who could shape up this team, are two new additions.
A contrast of seasons between these two clubs saw the Blues lift the Europa League and finished third in the league, while their opponents succumbed to a Europa League finish and were unsuccessful in the cup competitions.
There are some injury concerns for Frank Lampard with some players bound to join the group after a lengthy layoff. Solskjaer will be without Eric Bailly for this clash. The Ivorian injured his knee during a pre-season game and will sit out on the sidelines for five months.
We shall look at potential Chelsea’s lineup against Manchester United on Sunday.
Frank Lampard will be without Ruben Loftus Cheek, Antonio Rudiger, and Callum Hudson-Odoi. Whereas, N’Golo Kante, who has trained over the last two days, could warm the bench over the risk involved in his involvement.
There are no suspensions for the Blues.
Chelsea: Kepa Arrizabalaga, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen, Kurt Zouma, Emerson Palmieri, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ross Barkley, Willian, Christian Pulisic, Tammy Abraham.
