Chelsea vs Man United: Apart from the news of Ralf Rangnick’s anticipated appointment, Manchester United travel to Chelsea for a tense Premier League match on Sunday afternoon.
With 29 points from their first 12 games, the Blues remain in first place, while Michael Carrick’s side is seven places and 12 points behind the European champions.
Chelsea’s youth products stole the show against Juventus as the Champions League holders ran out convincing 4-0 winners at Stamford Bridge. The club has been chastised for a perceived unfairness towards their academy players, with a plethora of names currently out on loan.
Chelsea’s Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, and Callum Hudson-Odoi all scored before Timo Werner came off the bench to complete the scoring on his comeback from injury, ensuring Chelsea’s rightful place in the tournament’s last-16.
Following their 1-1 draw with Burnley before the international break, Thomas Tuchel’s side improved their Premier League fortunes by defeating Leicester City 3-0 at the King Power Stadium, with former Foxes lynchpin N’Golo Kante scoring the winner.
Chelsea’s win over Juventus was their ninth in ten games in all competitions, and they remain three points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table, having conceded only four goals all season – three of which have come at home.
Chelsea’s only goal in their last 450 minutes of top-flight football came from Matej Vydra’s equalizer for Burnley, so United’s famed attackers will have their work cut out for them to impress their soon-to-be interim boss.
Mauricio Pochettino’s future is still up in the air, but as United look for an experienced manager to lead them through the rest of the 2021-22 season, the ‘godfather’ of the gegenpress, Ralf Rangnick, appears to be on his way to Manchester.
Michael Carrick inspired Manchester United to a crucial 2-0 Champions League victory over Villarreal in midweek, and the Englishman will have the chance to test his mettle against Chelsea this week, with Rangnick unlikely to be appointed in time for a Tuchel reunion.
No United fan needs to be reminded of how Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s reign ended in the worst possible way at Watford last time out in the Premier League, and Carrick’s first game in charge begins with the Red Devils in eighth place in the table before the weekend’s games begin.
Chelsea vs Manchester United – news now on Chelsea vs Man United
Solskjaer has lost five of his last seven Premier League games in charge of Man United, and the Red Devils have yet to win back-to-back games on the road in any competition this season, with a 2-1 loss to Young Boys sandwiched between Premier League victories over Wolverhampton Wanderers and West Ham United.
Although both highly-anticipated games last season ended goalless, history may be on the Red Devils’ side, as they are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League meetings with Chelsea, keeping clean sheets in each of their last four.
Ben Chilwell may be out for several months after rupturing his ACL in the win over Juventus, while N’Golo Kante also suffered a knee injury in the match.
Kante’s injury isn’t as serious, but he’ll be out along with Mateo Kovacic, and Kai Havertz is still out with a hamstring strain, but Romelu Lukaku is ready to lead the line against his former club.
News on Chelsea vs Manchester United
The absences of Chilwell and Kante should benefit Marcos Alonso and Ruben Loftus-Cheek this week, and Tuchel has a big decision to make over Chalobah as the experienced Cesar Azpilicueta aims to return to the backline.
In terms of Man United, Harry Maguire was sent off in the thrashing at Vicarage Road and will be unavailable here, with Raphael Varane’s injury allowing Eric Bailly to earn a rare defensive start.
Paul Pogba is out for the foreseeable future, and doubts linger over Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw, and the COVID-positive Mason Greenwood, though Jadon Sancho will fight to keep his right-back spot after making his United debut in midweek.
Both Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford started on the bench against Villarreal, but both players will almost certainly return to their teammates in the final third now that Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial have left the team.
Chelsea possible starting lineup:
Mendy; Chalobah, Silva, Rudiger; James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso; Mount, Hudson-Odoi; Lukaku
Manchester United possible starting lineup:
De Gea; Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles; Fred, McTominay; Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford; Ronaldo

Our Prediction for Chelsea vs Manchester United.
We say: Chelsea 2-0 Manchester United
United may possess some of the strongest attacking names the league has to offer and can boast some positive recent results against Chelsea, but Carrick’s midfield and depleted defence do not inspire any confidence whatsoever.
If the Blues are capable of producing half as good a showing as they did in midweek – even with a couple more injury woes to contend with – Tuchel’s table-toppers should have no problem ending their winless streak against United here.
