Confirmed Manchester United line-up vs Chelsea: Eriksen starts

Manchester United face Chelsea in the Premier League on Saturday and this is how Erik ten Hag has decided to line-up at Stamford Bridge.

No changes in defence with David de Gea between the posts, Diogo Dalot and Luke Shaw occupying the full-back roles and Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez at centre-back.

Casemiro keeps his place in midfield but will be joined by Christian Eriksen, who is fully recovered from illness. Bruno Fernandes also gets the nod in midfield.

Marcus Rashford will lead the line with Antony on the right and Jadon Sancho attacking from the left.

The Red Devils already have a decent record against the teams they will be competing against for a place in the top four. Wins over Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and a draw against Newcastle United in a game we should have took all three points.

However, today United are back in Premier League action this evening when they travel to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

We saw their best performance of the season last time out in a 2-0 win over Tottenham, though most of the post-match reaction has been about Cristiano Ronaldo, who is not in today’s squad.

Ronaldo has been fined two weeks’ wages and told to train alone until further notice.
