Predicted line-up Chelsea (3-4-2-1) vs Manchester United (4-2-3-1) in super Sunday clash

Chelsea will entertain Manchester United at Stamford Bridge on Sunday evening as they try to pick up all three points at home.

The Blues managed to secure a narrow 1-0 victory over Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League in midweek, which will keep them in high spirits heading into this weekend’s Premier League clash at the English capital.

While Manchester United will be hoping to pick up a positive result and continue their strong run of form in the Premier League.

The Red Devils will be heading into the contest on the back of a 0-0 draw with Real Sociedad having already secured passage in the UEL round of 16 with a 4 nil win against Real Sociedad.

Thomas Tuchel will set his team up in a 3-4-2-1 formation once again and could make one change to his team for this blockbuster showdown in the league.

Reece James is expected to get a start as a right-sided wide player while Callum Hudson-Odoi drops to the bench.

Whereas Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will probably opt for the 4-2-3-1 formation with a number of tweaks from the last game.

David de Gea might get the nod over Dean Henderson, whereas Marcus Rashford looks likely to make his way back into the starting eleven.

3-4-2-1 Chelsea Predicted Lineup To Face Manchester United

Defence

Edouard Mendy will function in between the sticks for the Blues after securing a clean sheet in his last outing. The Chelsea boss could once again go with a back three of Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger as they look to keep things solid at the back on Sunday.

Kurt Zouma will have to be content with a spot on the bench as he provides cover for the centre-half positions.

Midfield

Mateo Kovacic will resume his midfield partnership with Jorginho as the pair look to dominate possession at the centre of the park and disrupt Man United’s flow on the counter. Marcos Alonso would operate as the left wing-back while Reece James fills in on the other flank as the right wing-back.

Timo Werner and Mason Mount will be given the freedom to express themselves as the attacking midfielders in the opposition half, so they will have to find a way to create some headaches for the Man United defenders throughout the 90 minutes.

N’Golo Kante and Callum Hudson-Odoi will be named on the bench but could come on to add some energy to Tuchel’s midfield in the latter stages of the game.

Attack

Olivier Giroud will spearhead Tuchel’s attack up top. The French centre-back managed to get his name on the scoresheet versus Atletico Madrid in midweek, so we can expect him to fancy his chances of producing a similar display this weekend.

Hakim Ziyech will probably be named on the bench as he waits for his opportunity to shine as an impact substitute if Tuchel decides to call upon his services.

David de Gea will return to operate in between the sticks for the upcoming home encounter. The Spanish shot-stopper made some brilliant saves against Newcastle United earlier this week; however, he’ll be hoping to secure a clean sheet this week.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka is a guaranteed starter at the right-back position, whereas Luke Shaw will return to fill in on the other flank as the left-back. The duo has been in blistering form over the past few months, and they would be looking forward to adding to their streak of impressive performances against the Blues.

Nemanja Matic and Fred will fulfil the holding midfield positions, with the latter occupying a more central role. Nemanja Matic put up a strong performance against the Royals as he shielded the backline effectively throughout the ninety minutes.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unsure about the availability of Scott McTominay, Donny van de Beek and Edinson Cavani this week.

“We hope that they [Scott, Donny and Edinson] can be available for the weekend, but I’m not sure. Paul is still out for a few weeks, unfortunately.” – The Norwegian coach stated.

Bruno Fernandes, who was taken off after the first forty-five minutes against Real Sociedad, will slot into the attacking midfield role. The Portuguese playmaker will be looking to add to his goal-scoring tally against Thomas Tuchel’s men on Sunday.

Fernandes will be accompanied by Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood on either side, playing on the left and right-wing respectively. The duo will be looking to use their pace and directness to breeze past the Blues’ defence.

Attack

Anthony Martial will lead the line for the hosts against Chelsea. The French striker has found himself struggling in front of the goal this season, so he’ll be eager to impress against Chelsea this weekend.

As mentioned above, Edinson Cavani remains a concern for the upcoming away encounter.
