Chelsea Team News And Predicted XI Vs Manchester United

Chelsea travel to Old Trafford to take on a Manchester United side that need just a point to secure Champions League football next season, with the Blues keen for their season to be over for a very different reason.

Frank Lampard’s side have won just once under his interim charge, and have nothing left to play for this season, with European football off the cards for next season and their worst Premier League season of all time confirmed.

They face a United side that could yet win a cup double, and are set to return to Europe’s top table.

Read on for the latest team news from Stamford Bridge, and how we expect the Blues to line up for their penultimate game of a horror season.

Team News

Frank Lampard has a whole host of injuries to contend with, as the Blues continue to struggle this season.

Benoit Badiashile is the latest to be sidelined, with the Frenchman set to be sidelined for four months with a groin injury and likely to miss the beginning of next season.

England stars Ben Chilwell, Mason Mount and Reece James are sidelined for the remainder of the season, along with Armando Broja and Kalidou Koulibaly.

Marc Cucurella and N’Golo Kante are also sidelined with hamstring issues, while Mateo Kovacic has not been spotted since picking up an injury a fortnight ago.

‘I know he had a bit of an issue going into the game”, Lampard explained after the 2-2 draw with Nottingham Forest. ‘It was clear yesterday in training. I spoke to him before to see how it went. I haven’t followed it up since the game, to be honest. We hope he’s OK.’

Joao Felix could also be out, with Frank Lampard confirming that the forward had picked up a knock and is a doubt for the trip to Old Trafford.
