Manchester United is eager to bounce back to victory as they face Chelsea in tonight’s Premier League clash.
The Red Devils experienced their sixth defeat in the top-flight campaign last weekend, succumbing 1-0 to Newcastle United at St James’ Park. The loss, however, could have been more significant, putting them five points behind fourth-placed Aston Villa. United now has the chance to narrow the gap, especially with Villa facing a formidable challenge against Manchester City.
In the last six encounters, United has drawn five times against Chelsea, but they secured a convincing 4-1 home victory in May. The team aims to replicate that performance.
Goalkeeper: Andre Onana
Onana delivered a more assured performance in the last game, and he is expected to start in goal tonight.
Left-back: Luke Shaw
Manager Erik ten Hag might revert Shaw to his favored left-back position after Diogo Dalot’s struggles in the previous game.
Central Defence: Raphael Varane and Harry Maguire
Varane is likely to be reinstated alongside Maguire in central defence.
Right-back: Aaron Wan-Bissaka
Wan-Bissaka is expected to retain his place at right-back.
Central Midfield: Sofyan Amrabat and Kobbie Mainoo
McTominay’s lack of control in the midfield in the last game might see Amrabat partnering Mainoo against Chelsea.
Left-wing: Alejandro Garnacho
Despite drawing a blank in the previous game, Garnacho is expected to continue on the left wing.
Attacking Midfield: Bruno Fernandes
Fernandes, a creative force with leadership skills, is a sure starter in the number 10 role.
Right-wing: Marcus Rashford
Ten Hag has been supportive of Rashford despite his recent form, and he might get the nod over Antony on the right wing.
Striker: Rasmus Hojlund
Hojlund is expected to reclaim his spot upfront, replacing Anthony Martial.
