After a long international break Maurizio Sarri takes on Jose Mourinho for the first time in the Premier League and the Chelsea starting XI almost picks itself, in what’s been a very settled line-up.
In CFCnet’s predicted Chelsea line up vs Man Utd on Saturday it’s expected that Antonio Ruidger will slot in to the defence alongside David Luiz, despite missing out with Germany in the Nations League due to an injury. A suspected groin strain could yet keep him out of the starting XI for the first time in the league under Sarri.
The only other doubt heading into the game is for Welsh international Ethan Ampadu who came off injured in a defeat to Spain last week. However, the 18-year old was never likely to feature on Saturday.
Despite scoring a couple of goals for Chelsea in the last games, Alvaro Morata is once again expected to start from the bench, with Olivier Giroud starting as the focal point of the attack – supported by Willian on the right and Eden Hazard on the left.
The Blues will be boosted by the news that Jesse Lingered is a major injury doubt for Manchester United’s trip to west London, while there are doubts over Luke Shaw, Nemanja Matic, Scott McTominay and Ander Herrera.
Predicted Chelsea Line Up vs Man Utd
Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga
Defence: Cesar Azpilicueta, Antonio Rudiger, David Luiz, Marcos Alonso
Midfield: Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante
Attack: Willian, Eden Hazard, Olivier Giroud
