So here are some of the ways United could line up against the Blues.
Option 1: Necessary changes from Villarreal win
After their impressive performances from the bench against Villarreal, it’s safe to say that Bruno Fernandes and Marcus Rashford will start this one. With Fred doubtful, Donny van de Beek could also get his first start in the Premier League of the season alongside Scott McTominay.
Option: Slight tweak in the formation
Despite their fitness worries, if Fred and Shaw are deemed available for the Chelsea game, they’ll be in contention to start. Michael Carrick could switch things up for this to catch the hosts off-guard with his formation.
