Both sides have a few players who will be missing the match due to injuries. In their last match, Chelsea received an injury scare through Conor Gallagher. However, the latest reports indicate that he might not be out for long. However, for this week, he will join Reece James, N’Golo Kante and Wesley Fofana on the sidelines. On the positive front though Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva are back and will give them much-needed options. Meanwhile, Manchester United will also miss a few players through injuries. Harry Maguire and Anthony Martial are the most notable absentees.
They will be joined in the treatment room by Donny van de Beek, Axel Tuanzebe, Brandon Williams and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. The return of Christian Eriksen will be a major plus for them. However, their main talking point will be about Cristiano Ronaldo walking down the tunnel even before the match against Tottenham got over. With barely minutes left to full-time and United cruising to victory, Ronaldo’s early departure has raised a lot of questions. It will be interesting to see if Erik ten Hag will play him at the weekend.
