An early season showdown of in-form teams with top-four aspirations. Chelsea are unbeaten in seven, United are unbeaten in five, but we’ve not beaten them in nine in the league. Victory is long overdue.
Graham Potter has chosen what he surely considers his strongest available lineup (less an injury to Koulibaly it would appear).
Here we go!

Arrizabalaga | Cucurella, Silva, Chalobah | Chilwell, Loftus-Cheek, Jorginho, Azpilicueta (c) | Sterling, Aubameyang, Mount
