Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday teatime, when they will play host to Frank Lampard’s Chelsea. Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side have made a mediocre start to the new campaign, but should be buoyed by their surprise win over Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League in midweek. They’ll look to maintain their impressive big-game record with a win over a Chelsea side that have picked up just eight points from their first five league games.
United will be without Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard, who are injured; and Anthony Martial, who is serving the second of a three-match ban. Brandon Williams, Marcos Rojo and Facundo Pellistri are all with the U23s, and won’t participate; Edinson Cavani, Mason Greenwood and Harry Maguire are doubts. Solskjær may opt to stick with the back three that undid PSG a few days ago. Meanwhile, Chelsea’s only absentees are backup keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga, and Billy Gilmour.
