Manchester United vs Chelsea: EPL predictions and probable line-up

Manchester United and Chelsea collide at Old Trafford on Saturday in the most eye-catching English Premier League fixture of the weekend.

Two of the giants of football in the EPL era have endured iffy starts to the new season, with the pressure creeping up on players-turned-bosses Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard.

United have lost two of their opening four league matches but did show signs of perking up in last weekend’s 4-1 win away at Newcastle.

They will be without crocked duo Eric Bailly and Jesse Lingard, while Anthony Martial continues to serve out his suspension.

Mason Greenwood and Harry Maguire are doubtful, as Edinson Cavani works his way towards match fitness following his deadline day transfer.

The Blues were pegged back to an irritating 3-3 draw by intrepid Southampton at Stamford Bridge last weekend.

It leaves Lampard’s men three unbeaten and eighth in the Premier League table coming into this weekend’s round of matches.

The Londoners have the luxury of a near-fully fit squad to pick from, with new keeper Edouard Mendy fit for action between the sticks.

Star defender Thiago is the only minor doubt, with Lampard and his coaching staff managing his workload as he adjusts to life in the EPL.
