Eric Bailly is a long-term absentee with a back injury, while Alexis Sanchez won’t be considered for the rest of the month following his late return from the 2019 Copa America. Paul Pogba missed United’s final pre-season game with a back problem but it would be a surprise if he didn’t start here.

Chelsea-  Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Antonio Rüdiger and Callum Hudson-Odoi are all sidelined for Chelsea.

N’Golo Kante managed to take part in Chelsea’s final pre-season game to hand Frank Lampard with a huge boost ahead of his first competitive game in charge of Chelsea.

Christian Pulisic will make his Chelsea debut against Manchester United, the club whom he supported growing up.

Mason Mount’s pre-season displays have given Lampard a headache heading into Sunday’s trip to Old Trafford and the midfielder will hope to get the nod over Ross Barkley here.
