Manchester United face a tough test in the Premier League on Sunday, traveling down to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. The Blues are now a well-drilled defensive unit under new manager Thomas Tuchel, and United have found goals hard to come by of late — a combination for a low-scoring affair. United’s record this season against other members of the so-called Big Six is added reason for pessimism.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is sweating on the fitness of some key contributors. Paul Pogba is definitely out, and both of Scott McTominay and Edinson Cavani face late fitness tests. Donny van de Beek is available again however, and the uneventful midweek stalemate with Real Sociedad spared the Reds any fresh injury concerns.
