Manchester United

Manchester United host Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend and the Red Devils will be looking to build on their impressive away win against PSG with a win in the League now.

The Red Devils have made a poor start to their league campaign and they have won just two of their four games so far.

Manchester United were expected to build on their top-four finish from last season but they have been quite mediocre in the league so far and they will be under pressure to improve as well.

The home side will be without the likes of Eric Bailly, Jesse Lingard due to injuries. Anthony Martial has been suspended and Edinson Cavani is still working on his match fitness after his deadline day move to Manchester United and he is unlikely to feature here.


Meanwhile, Chelsea have also won just twice in the League so far having played one more game than Manchester United.

Both teams will be desperate to get back to winning ways and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top eventually.

Chelsea were expected to challenge for the Premier League title after their massive summer outlay instead, they are eighth in the table after five games.

Frank Lampard will be under immense pressure to turn it around and the win over Manchester United could give the Blues immense confidence boost this week.

Chelsea will be without the injured Billy Gilmour for this game.
