Team News:

Chelsea
Chelsea will again be without the services of experienced centre-back Thiago Silva for this weekend's contest, with the Brazilian remaining on the sidelines due to a muscular problem.

The Blues are otherwise in excellent shape in terms of injuries, and there are not expected to be too many surprises in the home side's XI on Sunday afternoon.

Olivier Giroud's excellent goal against Atletico should see the France international keep his spot at the tip of the attack with Mount and Werner operating in the two positions just behind.

N'Golo Kante, Reece James and Ben Chilwell could again be on the bench, meanwhile, with Mateo Kovacic, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Marcos Alonso likely to retain their spots.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Hudson-Odoi, Jorginho, Kovacic, Alonso; Mount, Giroud, Werner

Manchester United
As for Man United, Phil Jones, Juan Mata and Paul Pogba are all absent, but Solskjaer said on Thursday night that he hoped that Edinson Cavani, Donny van de Beek and Scott McTominay would all be available following recent issues.

Van de Beek looks certain to make the squad, but McTominay has since been officially ruled out, while Cavani is facing a battle to be fit, having not yet trained following a muscular issue.

There will be changes from the side that started against Real Sociedad, with David de Gea, Luke Shaw, Harry Maguire and Marcus Rashford set to return to the starting XI.

Mason Greenwood could feature on the right as James is a doubt with a muscular problem, while Cavani should start if he can prove his fitness ahead of kickoff.

Bruno Fernandes captained Man United on Thursday before being substituted at the interval, and the Portugal international is a certainty to feature in the XI on Sunday.
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw; Fred, Matic; Rashford, Fernandes, Greenwood; Cavani

Head To Head
Man United lead the head-to-head record over Chelsea 81 wins to 55, while there have also been 52 draws between the two sides in all competitions, dating back to 1905.

As mentioned, the pair played out a goalless draw at Old Trafford earlier this season, while Chelsea recorded a 3-1 victory in the semi-finals of the FA Cup last season.

Man United have won three of the last five meetings between the two sides in all competitions, though, including a 2-0 success when they travelled to Stamford Bridge last season.

The Red Devils, meanwhile, have not actually lost to the Blues in England's top flight since November 2017, when Alvaro Morata's second-half effort proved to be enough for the capital side to triumph.

Prediction: Chelsea 1-1 Manchester United
