Ahead of the blockbuster Premier League fixture, the coaches of Manchester United and Chelsea have confirmed the starting lineups ahead of kickoff at 5:30 pm West Africa Time today, Saturday, October 22, 2022.
Graham Potter would be looking to extend his unbeaten run across all competitions since he took charge of Chelsea from Thomas Tuchel, and Erik Ten Hag would also look to continue his fantastic run against top opponents in the premier league.
Chelsea would still be missing out on Reece James and N’Golo Kante but have received the boost of having Conor Gallagher back in the squad. Manchester United would be without Ronaldo, who was intentionally left out of the squad.
Here are the starting lineups:
Chelsea: Kepa; Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Cucurella, Azpilicueta (c), Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Chilwell, Mount, Aubameyang, Sterling.
Subs: Mendy, Chukwuemeka, Gallagher, Kovacic, Zakaria, Havertz, Pulisic, Ziyech, Broja.
Man United: De Gea; Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Shaw, Casemiro, Eriksen, Antony, Fernandes (c), Sancho, Rashford.
Subs: Heaton, Lindelof, Malacia, Fred, Pellistri, Iqbal, McTominay, Elanga, Garnacho.
