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.
Lampard has told his Chelsea squad how he wants them to approach Thursday’s clash, revealing pre-match: “(A) similar approach to Manchester City, albeit they won the league the night before. We’ll have to go there with a good mentality.”
Here is the confirmed team news from Manchester as Chelsea take on United.
Starting XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Shaw, Varane, Lindelof, Casemiro, Eriksen, Fernandes, Antony, Sancho, Martial
Bench: Butland, Dalot, Maguire, Malacia, Fred, McTominay, Garnacho, Rashford, Weghorst
