Bailly, Sanchez & Pogba Start: Man Utd vs Chelsea Strongest Possible Line-up

Manchester United will welcome arch-rivals Chelsea to Old Trafford for a Premier League game on Sunday.

The match is expected to be a tough one given the strong rivalry between the two clubs.

Manchester United are second on the league table with three points above fourth placed Chelsea and two points above second placed Liverpool.

Romelu Lukaku has been criticized in recent times due to his failure to show up in big games such as this and Sunday will be another opportunity for the Belgium international to prove his doubter wrong.

The 24-year old forward is expected to lead the attack for the Red Devils in a 4-2-3-1 formation while Jesse Lingard plays behind him.

United are currently on a decline, they have only won two of their last five matches including a 1-1 at Sevilla over the midweek in a Champions League match.

Ander Herrera is currently out of selection after suffering a hamstring injury against Sevilla on Tuesday night and would be missed in Sunday clash as Jose Mourinho has repeatedly used him to man-mark Eden Hazard in their previous games.

France international Paul Pogba made a surprise appearance for United during Sevilla game and the powerful box-to-box midfielder would be expected to start against Chelsea this weekend.

Phil Jones is a doubt for the game and as a result we expect Eric Bailly to partner inform Chris Smalling at the centre of defense while Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia play from the left and right-back respectively.

Here is here we expect Mourinho to line-up his men with Juan Mata and Alexis Sanchez playing from the right and left wing respectively.
