Both Chelsea and Manchester United will look to bounce back from disappointing weekend display as they clash at Stamford Bridge this evening.

The pressure intensified on Mauricio Pochettino following a 2-2 home draw with Burnley to leave them 11th in the Premier League and closer to the relegation zone than the top four.

United, meanwhile, were fortunate to escape with a point against Brentford on Saturday and dropped further ground to Tottenham and Aston Villa in the race for Champions League football.

The Blues will look to end their poor league record against the Red Devils having failed to win a league game against them since November 2017.

Team news

Malo Gusto is the latest to join the ever-growing injury list at Chelsea after the full-back limped off with a hamstring issue against Burnley. Pochettino will hope to have Ben Chilwell available for selection again after the left-back missed last weekend’s game having returned from international duty with a knock.

Manchester United are also contending with defensive issues after both Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof were substituted during the draw with Brentford. Harry Maguire could be in line to return to the starting XI having missed out with a knock picked up with England. Mason Mount, who scored on Saturday for the first time since his lengthy injury, could be in line to start against his former side.
