With Chelsea visiting Old Trafford, it will be the last chance for Manchester United to try and bolster their top four hopes by taking a victory to their home fans.

The Red Devils have been in deep trouble of late, and haven’t scored in three consecutive competitive fixtures. What better occasion to resume the goal fest than against their iconic rivals?

When the two teams met at Stamford Bridge, a dramatic fixture ensured with the London side clinching the equalizer late into the game.

Here’s how they are likely to lineup for the game.

Injuries will limit only Phil Jones and Eric Bailly from putting in an appearance, with Antonio Valencia back in training. Ander Herrera was also revealed to be match fit, and will likely be given the start as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be looking to make an instrumental change to his lineup.

Paul Pogba staying on next season is one facet that the Norwegian seemed confident about in his pre-game press conference, and he and Romelu Lukaku will have to put in strong performances in order to win back the trust of Old Trafford.

Maurizio Sarri has found his side in an intriguing position, as Arsenal and Manchester United keep killing their top-four hopes week in and week out. Victory at Old Trafford will arguably be the last solid step the Blues will have to take in order to secure that avenue for next season.

Injuries will limit Hudson-Odoi, Marco van Ginkel, Daniel Drinkwater, and Antonio Rudiger from the game. Meanwhile, Charly Musonda will remain a late call, while Ethan Ampadu is back in training.
