Confirmed Manchester United XI to face Chelsea: Scott McTominay and Daniel James start

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has included Scott McTominay and Daniel James in his Manchester United starting lineup to face Chelsea in the Premier League.

United can extend their advantage over Thomas Tuchel’s side to nine points with victory at Stamford Bridge.

But this will be a major test against a Chelsea side who are reinvigorated under their new German boss.

Solskjaer has made five changes from the team that drew 0-0 against Real Sociedad at Old Trafford in the Europa League on Thursday.

McTominay was a doubt after his impact injury against La Real in Turin but joins Fred in the midfield axis.

David De Gea returns in goal and is protected by Solskjaer’s first-choice back four with captain Harry Maguire back after his midweek rest.

James has impressed with two goals in his last three starts and is given a huge opportunity in West London in attack alongside Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford.

Man Utd XI to face Chelsea: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Maguire, Lindelof, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Fernandes, Greenwood, Rashford, James.
