4-2-3-1: Chelsea Predicted starting XI Vs Man United

Chelsea face Manchester United in a late kick-off game on Sunday at Old Trafford in what promises to be a classic.

The Blues have had an eventful 72 hours after a rather steady pre-season with the departure of defender David Luiz to cross-town rivals Arsenal.

We look at the players that are likely to start at Old Trafford for the former Derby manager.

Spanish ace Kepa Arrizabalaga is the first choice stopper and would be looking to start the season with a morale-boosting clean sheet at Old Trafford. The defence is settled with the exit of Luiz and the injury to Antonio Rudiger making it easier for Lampard.

The young duo of Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen are favoured to start and both players have the responsibility of stopping Marcus Rashford from posing a major threat for Manchester United.

Club captain Cesar Azpilicueta will start at right back why Brazilian Emerson appears to have sewn up the left-back position.

The midfield could see a change in the holding duo with N’Golo Kante fit again and should partner Jorginho with Kovacic dropping to the bench.

Mason Mount has been impressive in pre-season and should play in the attacking midfield role in which he excelled at Derby County last season.

The attack should see Tammy Abraham flanked by new man Christian Pulisic and Spanish ace Pedro.
