Chelsea face Manchester United in the Premier League as Erik ten Hag’s side look to secure qualification for next season’s Champions League.

With two games left to play, Chelsea and Man United’s season are almost over with Ten Hag’s side with three matches left.

United need one more point from their two games to qualify for the Champions League next season, and then have an FA Cup final against local rivals Manchester City next month.

“Similar approach to Manchester City, albeit they won the league the night before,” said caretaker boss Frank Lampard on Chelsea’s approach to Thursday’s clash. “We’ll have to go there with a good mentality.”

Here is all the information for the league encounter:

Chelsea team news to face Manchester United

Marc Cucurella, Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Mason Mount, N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Armando Broja are all sidelined for the Blues.

Kalidou Koulibaly continued to train with the squad after a hamstring injury, but remains out.

Benoit Badiashile is set to be out for months with a hamstring injury. Lampard said: “It’s a big blow for him. I’m really disappointed for him because he’s come here and impressed. The games before he got injured, I was very happy with him. He’s going to be a really good player for the club.

“The injury is unfortunate, it’s a bit of a complicated injury. We’re probably talking months rather than weeks, unfortunately. I hope, for him, the timing for him over the summer he’s not missing games and he comes back stronger.”

However, Joao Felix will return to the Chelsea side after missing the Man City defeat with a small injury.
