Predicted Man Utd XI vs Chelsea (Premier League away, 2020/21)

Ahead of our huge Premier League game, it’s time for our predicted Man Utd XI vs Chelsea…

For Manchester United and Chelsea, this fixture is massive. If our Red Devils lose, our title charge is all-but over and it’ll be about fighting for a spot in the top four.

It’s down to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to put his players in the absolute best position to win, even if we have absolutely zero chance at a title. At the very least, we need to finish best of the rest and seal our place in next season’s Champions League.

In the managerial head-to-head battle, Solskjaer has done pretty well against Thomas Tuchel, though this Chelsea side is an improving one. Make no mistake about it, this one won’t be easy.

In regards to team news, Scott McTominay, Edinson Cavani and Paul Pogba are all set to miss this game, which makes the Baby Faced Assassin’s job that much harder. Anyway, let’s get right into it…

Predicted Man Utd XI vs Chelsea in full:

David de Gea will start in between the sticks, although I must admit, I’d go for Dean Henderson myself.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka will play at right-back as per usual, with Luke Shaw getting the nod over on the left. Harry Maguire returns to the team after getting some rest in midweek, with Eric Bailly completing the back four.

Nemanja Matic will sit at the midfield’s base due to the aforementioned injury to McTominay. Bruno Fernandes always starts when fit. We’re going to need some magic from El Magnifico. Fred completes the midfield trio.

I’ve gone for Mason Greenwood up front. Let’s be honest, Anthony Martial is struggling badly and giving him the start here would honestly be a massive mistake. Daniel James is the in-form player, so he has to be involved from the off here. Marcus Rashford completes the team.
