Chelsea and Manchester United will be locking horns in the Premier League this weekend.

It has been a difficult task for the Red Devils when they travel to west London to face their familiar foes.

Jose Mourinho’s side was beaten two weeks ago against Huddersfield Town, a result that allowed Manchester City to open up a lead at the top of the table.

But they have bounced back to win three in all competitions since then and appear determined to close the gap.

On the other hand, Antonio Conte’s Chelsea are even further off the pace, they are nine points behind the leaders and they are currently navigating through a difficult period.

Chelsea suffered a heavy 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Champions League in midweek and will be keen to bounce back with what could be a decisive victory.

France midfielder, N’golo Kante, Chelsea’s engine room, is a doubt for the match over his fitness meaning that Tiemoue Bakayoko is likely to continue alongside Cesc Fabregas in midfield.

Also in the midfield, Danny Drinkwater is available for selection, but may have to make do with a place on the bench against his old club.

Chelsea’s potential starting XI: Courtois; Cahill, Azpilicueta, Luiz; Zappacosta, Alonso, Bakayoko, Fabregas, Hazard, Pedro; Morata.

For Manchester United, they will continue with life without Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini, while Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo are yet to return.
