Confirmed Teams: Man United vs Chelsea – Lampard makes huge triple Chukwuemeka, Madueke & Mudryk selection decision
Chelsea face Manchester United in the Premier League and the confirmed team news is in from Old Trafford.
Frank Lampard‘s side head north for the second time in five days after their narrow 1-0 defeat to champions Manchester City last Sunday.
The 44-year-old has two games left in charge of Chelsea before he departs from his caretaker role as Mauricio Pochettino awaits in the wings to take over at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are looking forward to the season concluding after a dismal campaign and first year under the Todd Boehly and Clearlake Capital ownership.
Meanwhile, Man United are on the verge of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Erik ten Hag’s side only need a point from their two matches to secure top-flight European qualification.
