Chelsea VS Man United Semi-Finals Live Reddit Score 28 Nov 2021

Chelsea host Manchester United in a huge Premier League clash at Stamford Bridge today. Both sides enjoyed victories in the Champions League earlier this week, although it is Chelsea who head into the game in more convincing form, with the 4-0 thumping of Juventus marking Thomas Tuchel’s 50th match in charge perfectly.

A solid defensive unit and a fearsome attack enjoying the success of the club’s academy graduates, they might not have easy a game as they would have done had Ole Gunnar Solskjaer not been sacked. Indeed, with United looking so devoid of ideas and easy to play against Manchester City and Liverpool recently, surely Michael Carrick will look to shut up shop to avoid further embarrassment in big games.

Chelsea have suffered two devastating injury blows ahead of Sunday’s Premier League encounter with Manchester United.

The Blues lost Ben Chilwell to suspected ACL damage in the Champions League win over Juventus, while the luckless N’Golo Kante also failed to complete the first half of that encounter due to a knee problem.

There are fears that Chilwell’s injury could sideline him for several months, and while Kante’s issue is not thought to be as serious, he is highly unlikely to be ready for this fixture.

Mateo Kovacic’s thigh problem had already depleted Thomas Tuchel’s options in midfield, where Ruben Loftus-Cheek will hope to edge out Saul Niguez for a start alongside Jorginho.

Marcos Alonso will benefit from Chilwell’s absence on the left as the ever-impressive Reece James holds his place on the right, and Trevoh Chalobah can feel confident of reprising his role in defence alongside Thiago Silva and Antonio Rudiger.

Cesar Azpilicueta may therefore have to make do with another spot on the bench, and further up the pitch, Kai Havertz remains a doubt after missing the Juventus win with a thigh problem.

Mason Mount and Callum Hudson-Odoi will likely hold their places as Romelu Lukaku – who boasts just three goals in 11 Premier League clashes with his old club – is set to warm the bench, with Timo Werner likely to be given the nod up top in that case.

Chelsea will look to maintain their three-point gap at the top of the Premier League table on Sunday when they host Manchester United at Stamford Bridge. The Blues enter the fixture in high spirits after their 4-0 win against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday night, but the mood around the Chelsea camp was slightly dampened with N’Golo Kante and Ben Chilwell both leaving the pitch with injures – the latter’s considered to be potentially season-ending.

This will be United’s first Premier League match since they sacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last week, with Michael Carrick set to act as manager once again. Chelsea’s midfield woes continue with Matteo Kovacic also expected to be sidelined, with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Saul Niguez or Ross Barkley expected to slot in next to Jorginho.

Timo Werner and Christian Pulisic have both returned from injury in the last week and could push to start as the lone striker, but Havertz remains the first choice whilst Romelu Lukaku continues to return from injury. The Belgian striker was on the bench against Juventus midweek, meaning Lukaku could feature on Sunday against his former side.
