Chelsea, the favourites as we look at the best predicted starting 11 and key details for their match vs Manchester United for EPL 2022. 

Chelsea vs Manchester United shall be a really interesting game, and both teams would be eyeing a win to get into the top 4 of the league. While Chelsea are coming back from a draw against Brentford in an away game, Manchester United have just won a game against Antonio Conte’s Spurs and are in good form coming into this game.

Both teams are missing a few key players. However, both have squads that will make this game an interesting draw to watch. Cristiano Ronaldo has been banished from the team that will travel to London given his antics in the previous game.

Whereas Anthony Martial, Wan-Bissaka, and Harry Maguire are all injured, and not available for this game. On the other hand, Chelsea would be missing Wesley Fofana, Reece James, N’Golo Kante and Conor Gallagher for this game against United. 


Chelsea and Manchester United have both won almost equally having dominated their home games against each other. It’s always a close game between these two teams, and this fixture will also be equally interesting.
