Predicted Chelsea line-up vs Man Utd at Old Trafford

Chelsea travel to Old Trafford for tonight's Premier League clash against Manchester United.

The Blues are currently on 19 points for the campaign and will be aiming to close the 10-point deficit to the top four with a victory.

Predicted Line-up:

Robert Sanchez has played every minute of the Premier League campaign in goal and he is expected to continue between the sticks.

In defence, there should be a solitary change. Reece James is expected to start at right-back ahead of Axel Disasi after his suspension.

Thiago Silva and Benoit Badiashile should continue in the central defensive roles while Levi Colwill is expected to start at left-back.

In midfield, there will be an enforced change with Conor Gallagher suspended following his red card against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Enzo Fernandez and Moises Caicedo are nailed-on starters and they are likely to be partnered by Cole Palmer from the number 10 role.

Further forward, Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk are expected to retain their places out wide with Nicolas Jackson leading the line.

Christopher Nkunku won't be available for the game. Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that he is not fit enough to feature after his knee injury.

Predicted Chelsea line-up (4-2-3-1): Sanchez; James, Silva, Badiashile, Colwill; Fernandez, Caicedo; Sterling, Palmer, Mudryk; Jackson.
