On the other hand, Manchester United won two matches and lost the same in the league, to occupy the 15th place. Dutch player Donnie Van de Beek was the team’s best deal until the last moments of the summer Mercato, which saw the arrival of veteran Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani and left back Alex Tillis. The latter participated in the important European victory on the grounds of Paris Saint-Germain, but Cavani did not travel with the team due to his lack of physical preparation.
The meeting could see the first participation of Manchester newcomer Edinson Cavani
After losing a “thunderbolt” at home to Tottenham with a six-goal goal, Solskjaer’s men scored two important wins on Newcastle land (4-1) and Paris Saint-Germain (2-1), as he seeks to achieve the third successive victory when he meets Chelsea.
Defender Eric Bailey will miss the match after being ruled out for four weeks due to injury, while striker Anthony Martial is still suspended after receiving a red card against Tottenham. Harry Maguire missed United’s victory in Paris, which is likely to continue with three defenders in the back line, Victor Lindelof, Axel Tuanzebi and Luke Shaw, especially since Phil Jones is not in the squad. The meeting could see the first participation of newcomer Edinson Cavani, as well as the return of winger Mason Greenwood, while Jesse Lingard’s participation seems far-fetched.
For his part, coach Frank Lampard is optimistic about the return of Thiago Silva and Edward Mendy, which gives the team more balance in the back line. This was clearly evident in front of Seville, when Chelsea kept its clean sheets. With the return of the player Hakim Ziyech from injury, and the readiness of the American winger Christian Pulisic, Lampard will finally be able to participate in all the elements of his basic squad that will face Manchester United, who will face two consecutive victories.
A difficult match awaits the two teams, which will take pressure off one of the coaches in the event of a victory. The two systems are ready, and they need a victory in the classic meeting in order to obtain a moral boost in preparation for the upcoming benefits.
