Team News

Chelsea
Chelsea team have gone over the good and the awful that took place in our 4-0 win over Juventus last Tuesday. Losing Ben Chilwell for at least six weeks to an ACL injury certainly slots in the latter part, alongside the injury scare we had with N’Golo Kanté.

Chilwell is definitely out of contention, and so is Mateo Kovacic who is still healing from a hamstring injury. Kanté has a very slim chance to feature, but if Tuchel is smart — and that seems to be case thus far — he will give our precious Frenchman a well-deserved rest. Meanwhile Romelu Lukaku has been back from injury for a while, although he most likely will not start; and Kai Havertz has recovered from the minor hamstring problem he had during our 3-0 win against Leicester last weekend.

Tuchel’s decision not to start our nearly £100m centre-forward might be a head-scratcher to many. But not to those who have paid close attention to the performances, stats and everything else struck by Chelsea in his absence, from the six regular time wins in eight matches to the 20 goals we have scored in this streak. It is a delicate balance we have achieved, and Lukaku will have to work to prove he can add usefulness to what we have going on.

Manchester United
United almost got themselves into very big trouble by letting Solskjaer take command of a ship which he clearly had little idea how to run, perhaps from the get-go.

The stop-gap to the future stop-gap, Michael Carrick, played with Romelu Lukaku for a season before hanging his boots. With three years of experience as an assistant to Mourinho and then to Solskjaer, his first game as caretaker manager went well thanks to late goals by Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho to find a 2-0 win away at Villarreal in the Champions League — whether that was the “new boss bounce” effect or not, is still undecided.

Chelsea do not have a clean health bill, and neither do United. Luke Shaw and Fred are touch and go at the moment according to the caretaker manager, with Paul Pogba and Raphaël Varane still out due to hamstring injuries. Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood might make their way back to the squad, but it is unknown whether they will be fit enough to start against the Blues this weekend. Meanwhile, Harry Maguire is suspended due to the double yellow card he got in United’s Watford defeat last weekend.

At the very least, you cannot say Carrick has no idea of what he has in store when facing Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.

Prediction: Chelsea 2-1 Manchester United
