This will be a difficult game, we never win in Stamford Bridge. I think it's two wins in the last 15 years.. something like that.

There are no replays, straight extra time & penalties.

Is Martial/Lingard fit?
Will Lukaku start?
Sanchez?Mata?


Perfect game to bounce back. Let's see the character of the boys

Its a perfect test for Ole too.
Can he get the players back up, now the gloss is off?

BTW, in case my first comment sounds a bit daft. there was originally a type with Arsenal put in instead of Chelsea.
A bit of fun after drab evening watching us taking a drubbing.

Preview:

Two downers for both teams but we have been on the better run than Chelsea.

It's one of those ties that you can show that you have the bounce back abality and the important thing is not to lose 2 games in a row.

I can only guess the team

Prediction: Away win Man Utd to bounce back from a disappointing midweek result.

That's the question. They have been two of our most important players.

I can bet your bottom dollar that Pogba will be playing though.

Well, I said the response to the first loss would show us what the manager is really made of. Lets see what happens from here.

It will be very interesting to see if Ole continues to play the same strategy without the players that make it work. Without Martial and Lingard we cannot press, playing any two of Lukaku, Sanchez or Mata and we cannot press, and the entire strategy is built on pressing. Look no further than the PSG game to see what happens when we cannot press.

I wonder if Ole might include some of the youngsters player to get energy and pace up front or try something like a 4-4-2 diamona with Pogba at the point of the diamond.


I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

We will start to find out what Ole knows about modifying his tactics if Martial and Lingard are out.
I don't know what we can do to create a strategy around Lukaku, Mata and Sanchez.
The lack of mobility is frightening.

'The caretaker United boss was hoping to involve 17-year-old Mason Greenwood in the squad to face Chelsea but revealed the youngster has also been struck with an injury blow.

"We were thinking Mason Greenwood now is your time to step in, but he's also injured unfortunately. He's out for a couple of weeks as well," Solskjaer said.

"That's just how your luck sometimes goes, Mason will get his chance later on."

Young duo Angel Gomes and Tahith Chong have been training with United's first team in recent weeks and Solskjaer says the pair now have a "big chance" of being involved against Chelsea on Monday.

"It might be (time for Gomes or Chong to come in)," he added.

"We still have forward options but Angel and Chongy have been training with us all week, even the weeks leading up to this, so there is a big chance they will be involved."'

Team might look like this

Romero

Dalot. Smalling. Lindelof. Shaw

Herrera. Matic. Pogba

Sanchez. Lukaku. Rashford

I would not be one bit surprised to see'

deGea
Young Jones Lindelöf Shaw
Matic
Pereira Herrera
Pogba
Lukaku Rashford

Fred could get the nod over Pereira, either way both would be checking into the "last chance" saloon. Very chancy to start either Chong or Gomes but having them available to inject some energy off the bench wouldn't be the worst thing in the world.

Why not McTominay instead of Pereira?
That would probably give us a firmer midfield and allow Pogba a bit more freedom going forward.

I think that Herrera will be given the task of one-on-one coverage of Jorginho, hopefully stifling Chelsea's offense. If that's true, then we will need more creativity in midfield than I think McTominay can provide.

Coach has just left Carriington
Gomes and Chong both have traveled
They have also had Mason Greenwood in the physio's room all weekend trying to get him fit after he injured himself a couple of days ago
he has failed his fitness test and has not traveled

At the best of times Chelsea at home has become a big ask for United teams - I think we are something like 2 wins out of the last 15 games. I just don't see Ole starting the young players, but I could see Chong coming on for an injection of pace and free lags against Luiz.

Pity about Greenwood.

There is no mobility through the spine of the team

Smalling,Mata and Lukaku

And why leave DDG,the worlds best goalkeeper out?
Are they getting used to life without him?Is he stalling on his contract?

We might well win but i don't consider we are being given our best chance

Sanchez is clearly not part of Ole's plans as tonight would have been perfect to start
Is Ole part of Ed's plans because if he is it's bye bye Sanchez

I think we will win as well Goku a coz Chelski do big wee wee's

You don't retain a goalie as good as him as a number two without allowing him to start some important games

Subs

No sign of Gomez etc
