Manchester United have named their team to face Chelsea this afternoon.
United go into the game at Stamford Bridge on the back of an unbeaten away league run that stretches back to last January. As Leicester dropped points earlier today, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team have a great opportunity to strengthen their hold on second place and a Champions League qualification spot.
“Chelsea are always one of the favourites every season for the last 20 seasons,” Solskjaer said before the game. “We’ve prepared well, we’ve managed to get a few players off [rested on Thursday night] so we should be ready for this game.”
“You can see a certain style he [Tuchel] wants to play. He’s had fantastic results since he came and of course we know we’re playing against a team with confidence and they’re in form. He’s a manager who can do different things so we’ve just got to prepare for every scenario possible.”
“I think he’s given most of the players a chance and been rotating. He knows what he wants and thankfully it’s none of my concern! We know whatever team he puts out it’s a good Chelsea team and it has been a good Chelsea team over the last two-and-a-half years I’ve been here. We’ve had some good results and some bad results and we’re looking forward to this one.”
“We’re looking forward to it of course. We want to make sure Chelsea are behind us but we’re also looking ahead and above us so we need the points.”
Solskjaer had told reporters before the match that Scott McTominay was out of the match – however, he has been named in the starting line up.
United against Chelsea kicks off at 4.30pm and is live in the UK on Sky Sports.
