Here we are again at home, this time upon the call of domestic football as Chelsea faces Manchester United to keep at least a three-point advantage over Manchester City — who beat West Ham 2-1 at Etihad Stadium earlier today.

This is Michael Carrick’s second game in charge of United, and also his second game ever as a manager. He managed a 2-0 win over Villarreal in his debut, and it is our mission to make sure his success rate is cut by half today.

Although United are not in the best run of form thanks to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s legacy, they are still one of our biggest Premier League rivals. No wonder Thomas Tuchel did not want to take any risks, by going ahead with the strongest lineup available in his squad.

Here we go!

Mendy | Chalobah, Silva, Rüdiger | James, Jorginho (c), Loftus-Cheek, Alonso | Ziyech, Werner, Hudson-Odoi
