The crunch game of another packed Premier League weekend arrives at Old Trafford as Chelsea visit Manchester United for a 5:30 PM kick-off.
Chelsea and Manchester United have both failed to hit the ground running after two very different summer transfer windows, yet both retain hopes of challenging for the title in what could be the most open race we’ve seen in years. But with just 14 points between them from nine games, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard know that they must find consistency in terms of performances and results sooner rather than later.
Meanwhile, Manchester United recorded an impressive victory away at PSG during the Champions League match day and will hope they can take three vital points to amend their seemingly sluggish start to the season.
Harry Maguire and Mason Greenwood will be given every chance to prove fitness after missing the midweek trip to Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League.
Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly are unavailable due to injury and Anthony Martial is still suspended for domestic matches, after his red card against Tottenham.
New signing Edinson Cavani is in contention to make the squad for the first time, after training hard all week, with a possible debut for the ex-PSG star on the cards.
With Paul Pogba having impressed after coming off the bench against PSG, it remains to be seen whether Solskjaer opts to leave him out again.
