Predicted Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Chelsea, Varane starts

Predicted Man Utd line-up vs Chelsea at home

Manchester United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford for tonight’s Premier League clash.

The Red Devils recently suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Newcastle United and they are now five points adrift of the top four.

Erik ten Hag will be expecting a strong performance against the Blues, who have not beaten United in the league since late 2017.

Predicted Line-up:

Andre Onana has played every minute of the top-flight campaign for United. He is expected to continue between the sticks tonight.

In defence, there could be a solitary change. Diogo Dalot could be dropped on the back of his lacklustre performance against Newcastle.

Luke Shaw is likely to return to the left-back role with Raphael Varane coming in to partner Harry Maguire at the heart of the backline.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka should continue on the right side of the back four.

In midfield, Scott McTominay could make way for Sofyan Amrabat. The Scotland international looked out of sorts against the Magpies.

Amrabat could be accompanied by teenager Kobbie Mainoo, who has shown plenty of maturity from the number six role in recent games.

Further forward, Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandes and Alejandro Garnacho are expected to retain their places in the United attack.

Anthony Martial could, however, be dropped with Rasmus Hojlund replacing him up front. The Dane has yet to score in the league and has the perfect chance to end the barren run.

Predicted Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Chelsea: Onana; Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Varane, Shaw; Amrabat, Mainoo; Rashford, Fernandes, Garnacho; Hojlund.
