Chelsea v Man Utd Team News and Build Up

Jose Mourinho

Match preview in partnership with our friends, Manchester laptop repair company

Mourinho is back in town! A fixture that I always look forward to in the footballing calendar is when Man Utd come to the Bridge. Of course there’s always the media circus when Jose returns and today will be no different.

As we approach kick off, the starting lineups have been released by both clubs. Here’s how the game will start:

Chelsea team: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Cahill (c); Zappacosta, Bakayoko, Kante, Fabregas, Alonso; Hazard, Morata.

Man Utd team: De Gea, Bailly, Jones, Smalling, Valencia, Herrera, Matic, Young, Mkhitaryan, Lukaku, Rashford

The big news for Chelsea is that Kante is back and will solidify the defensive midfield where we were overrun in Rome.

Drinkwater is also on the bench hoping to make his debut.

Conte this week has come under unnecessary further speculation about his job not being safe, which he responded in true classy style, “I think that it is normal. In the past it’s been the same with other managers and this is the history. I’m not worried about this situation. ‘I continue to do my job and work. I think my club is satisfied with my work.”
