Christopher Nkunku to make Chelsea debut vs Man Utd?

04 December 2023 - 20:40

Chelsea playmaker Christopher Nkunku could make his club debut during Wednesday's Premier League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

  • Chelsea defender out for rest of the season with knee injury
  • Predicted Man Utd line-up (4-2-3-1) vs Man City, Mainoo starts

  • The Frenchman joined the Blues from Leipzig during the summer transfer window and he was lively during the start of pre-season before picking up a knee injury.

    Nkunku was expected to return to the matchday squad against Brighton last weekend but he was not deemed fit enough. However, he is anticipated to face United.

    He may not necessarily make the starting XI against the Red Devils, but could be involved after the hour mark off the bench if the Blues are trailing in the game.

    Chelsea are currently 10th in the standings with 19 points, five adrift of United, who are placed seventh. Both clubs need a win to avoid losing further ground in the top four race.

    The fixture has been tightly fought in recent times. United have won just one of the last six meetings. The other five results have ended up in draws.
