Chelsea have been adjusting to life under new manager Frank Lampard this pre-season. The Blues have gone about their pre-season with little fuss, which is partly due to the transfer ban from FIFA.
This ban could prove to be a blessing for Lampard as he is likely to have an idea of his best 11 by now without the distractions of transfer rumours.
The Blues face German side Borussia Monchengladbach on Saturday evening in their last friendly before the clash at Old Trafford.
Looking at the previous matches, we predict the potential first eleven that could feature in the game.
Spanish ace Kepa should be in goal despite having not played many pre-season games. The defence is already set with club captain Cesar Azpilicueta at right back with Marcos Alonso likely to start ahead of Brazilian Emerson at left back.
The centre defence should be the pairing of David Luiz and Christensen who could have an extended role in the first team due to the injury to Antonio Rudiger.
The midfield should consist of the impressive duo of Jorginho and Kovacic with Mason Mount occupying the No10 role.
USA international Christian Pulisic should occupy the left role of the attack left by Eden Hazard with Pedro playing the opposite role and Belgium forward Michy Batshuayi leading the line.
Chelsea Predicted XI (4-2-3-1): Arrizabalaga; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Luiz, Alonso; Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Mount, Pulisic; Batshuayi
