Manchester United will play Chelsea in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Friday.

Ralf Rangnick’s Man United has had a disappointing season so far with the interim manager himself admitting that top-four chances are bleak this season.

The Red Devils will be missing some crucial players against Chelsea on Friday. While Paul Pogba is out on a long-term injury, Harry Maguire, Fred, Jadon Sancho and Luke Shaw are the names who won’t feature on United’s teamsheet for the match while right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka will face a late fitness test to determine whether he is match fit.

United is sixth in the table with 54 points in 34 matches.
