Manchester United vs. Chelsea, Premier League: Preferred lineup

Mauricio Pochettino suggested in his pre-match press conference that our lineup should pretty much pick itself given our injuries and unavailabilities. Judging by the WAGNH community’s voting, he may have a point.

All eleven starters got at least 70% of the vote, with six of the eleven clocking in at over 90%. I suppose that’s what we might call a strong consensus.

Compared to Sunday’s starting lineup, the two changes would be Axel Disasi dropping out for the returning captain Reece James and Cole Palmer, who was surprisingly only on the bench, coming in as the No.10 for the suspended Conor Gallagher.

4-2-3-1 (71%)
Sánchez (96%) | Colwill (72%), Badiashile (78%), Silva (77%), James (96%) | Enzo (99%), Caicedo (99%) | Mudryk (86%), Palmer (97%), Sterling (96%) | Jackson (77%)

Marc Cucurella (44%), Disasi (39%), and Armando Broja (22%) lead the rest as the only others players to collect any significant amount of votes.
