Manchester United will clash heads with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, hoping to pick up a positive result away from home. The visitors will be coming into the match on the back of a hard-fought 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur, whereas the Blues recorded a 0-0 stalemate with Brentford on Wednesday.
Erik Ten Hag will probably opt for the 4-3-3 formation with a couple of tweaks from the last game as Christian Eriksen looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven this weekend.
4-3-3 Predicted Manchester United Lineup Vs Chelsea
David de Gea is expected to start between the sticks for the upcoming clash. The Spanish shot-stopper would look to put up a strong performance and secure a clean sheet on Saturday.
Raphael Varane is expected to start at the heart of United’s backline, with Lisandro Martinez slotting into the right-centre back position. Diogo Dalot should begin at the right-back position, whereas Tyrell Malacia will fill in on the other flank as the left-back.
Casemiro is expected to start in the defensive midfield position, whereas Christian Eriksen will slot in as the central midfielder.
Bruno Fernandes remains a sure-fire starter for Manchester United this week, and it’ll be an understatement to say The Red Devils will be highly dependent on the Portugal international’s creative work if they wish to pick up a win on Saturday.
Fred will have to settle for a place on the bench, but he could be brought on in the second half of the contest if needed.
Antony and Jadon Sancho will take up the wide positions, causing menace for Graham Potter’s men down the right and left-wing, respectively.
Marcus Rashford is expected to lead the line for Manchester United this weekend. The England international’s adept movement in front of the goal could cause a lot of trouble for the Chelsea defence that has kept five clean sheets in their last five matches across all competitions.
