There’s a slight feeling of meaninglessness around this game, but we’re not quite there yet, for either side, really. Have to keep the three points coming if we are to finish the season comfortably.

Tuchel has made two changes from Sunday, with both Antonio Rüdiger and Reece James returning to the lineup after injuries. The official website has James listed as the right wing-back and César Azpilicueta as the right-center back, but they could be the other way around as well.

Here we go!


Manchester United starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
De Gea | Telles, Varane, Lindelöf, Dalot | Matić, McTominay | Rashford, B.Fernandes (c), Elanga | Cristiano Ronaldo

Substitutes from: Heaton, Henderson, Bailly, Fernandez, Jones, Hannibal, Mata, Garnacho, Shoretire

Chelsea starting lineup (3-4-3):
Mendy | Rüdiger, Silva, Azpilicueta (c) | Alonso, Jorginho, Kanté, James | Werner, Havertz, Mount

Substitutes from: Arrizabalaga, Chalobah, Sarr, Loftus-Cheek, Saúl, Kenedy, Pulisic, Ziyech, Lukaku
