Both Chelsea and Manchester United will be desperate to come away from their Premier League fixture on Sunday with all three points.

With a win at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea could move into the top four while United could close the gap on league leaders Manchester City.

The Blues come back to London in good form following an enormous 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid in Spain thanks to Olivier Giroud’s overhead kick.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s goalless draw with Real Sociedad at Old Trafford secured their passage into the last 16 of the Europa League, where the Red Devils will face AC Milan.

What is the team news?

Thiago Silva is Chelsea’s only injury concern ahead of the visit of Manchester United, as the Brazilian defender has been out with a thigh problem.

Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay could all return forUnited. Cavani and van de Beek have missed the past three matches due to muscle issues, while McTominay was withdrawn during their win at Sociedad. Daniel James will also be assessed, but Juan Mata, Paul Pogba and Phil Jones are out.

Confirmed line-ups

Chelsea: Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell; Ziyech, Giroud, Mount

Manchester United: De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; McTominay, Fred; James, Fernandes, Rashford; Greenwood


Chelsea: 5/4

Draw: 23/10

Manchester United: 12/5


Both sides will be desperate for all three points, and Chelsea’s lack of a cutting edge combined with Manchester United’s ability to concede out of nothing could make for an entertaining watch – but I can’t split the two sides. 1-1 draw.
