Manchester United Team News:
Eric Bailly is definitely not playing this game. The 25-year-old Ivorian is a long-term absentee with a back injury.
God knows why Alexis Sanchez‘s move to Old Trafford couldn’t materialize. If the former Arsenal forward is looking to recapture his old best, he has to wait a little longer as 31-year-old is lacking match fitness and is expected to miss the match.
Paul Pogba is a doubt with a back problem and will be monitored before the match.
Possible INs and OUTs of this game:
Victor Lindelof will partner the world’s most expensive defender Harry Maguire in central defence.
Fellow summer signings Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will look to consolidate the right side of the pitch for United as it has been the Achilles-heal for the Red Devils for quite some time now.
Anthony Martial played most of the pre-season centrally and could take the number spot with Marcus Rashford moving to the left to accommodate the Frenchman.
Paul Pogba has been the talk of the town this summer, but since none of the discussions have materialized, he is expected to feature against Chelsea.

Manchester United Playing 11 (Probables): De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Pogba, James, Lingard, Rashford, Martial.
