Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men may have struggled during their opening Premier League fixtures but confidence is high heading into this crunch tie.

United last played Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final in July, where the Blues emerged 3-1 victors at Wembley.

Chelsea are in need of a win here after drawing four of their last five games across all competitions.

Frank Lampard’s men are yet to keep a clean sheet on the road this term and Saturday’s match certainly promises goals.

Man Utd v Chelsea team news

Man Utd: Anthony Marital is still suspended for this clash, which means Edinson Cavani could make his debut against Chelsea here.

Mason Greenwood, Harry Maguire and Jesse Lingard will all be assessed ahead of the weekend, but Eric Bailly and Phil Jones remain out.

Chelsea: Manager Lampard has no fresh injuries heading into this tie, so expect a similar set-up to that which drew 0-0 with Sevilla in the Champions League in midweek.

Hakim Ziyech could start ahead of Mason Mount, while Cesar Azpilicueta is expected to return to the XI. Tammy Abraham may again remain on the bench.

Our prediction: Man Utd v Chelsea

United have responded well since the 6-1 defeat to Tottenham before the international break and will be confident of exploiting this fragile Chelsea defence on Saturday.

However, the Blues’ forward line is shaping up nicely and Lampard will likely prefer an open game for the likes of Timo Werner and Kai Havertz to exploit.

This could be a frenetic match and don’t be surprised if both sides have scored by the break.

Our prediction: Man Utd 2-2 Chelsea
