Man Utd vs Chelsea: What time does it start? Is it on TV? Who will win Premier League clash?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard

Manchester United and Chelsea will do battle on Saturday in their Premier League clash.

Both teams have had underwhelming starts to the league season.

Man United are currently in 15th, having accumulated six points from their opening four games.

They have a game-in-hand though over most of their rivals and could move into the top half with a win.

Chelsea have also struggled.

Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Frank Lampard spent big in the summer, with Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Ben Chilwell among the big money arrivals.

But they have failed to gel as of yet and have won just two of their opening five games.

The game kicks off on Saturday 23rd October at 5:30pm (GMT).

Where will it be played?

The game will be held at Old Trafford.

Team news

Harry Maguire and Mason Greenwood could both return after missing out against PSG through injuries.

Jesse Lingard and Eric Bailly are unavailable due to injury, while Anthony Martial is still suspended for domestic matches.

Edinson Cavani could be in line to make his first appearance for the club.

Billy Gilmour and Kepa will not be available for Chelsea. Edouard Mendy is expected to continue in goal while Hakim Ziyech could make his first start for the club.


Players to watch

United: Marcus Rashford is drawing plaudits for his actions on and off the pitch. He scored the winner against PSG in the Champions League on Tuesday and worked at a food bank on Thursday. He'll be looking to continue his form on Saturday.

Chelsea: Edouard Mendy has looked promising in his first few starts for the club. Chelsea's defence has looked very shaky recently so he will likely have a lot of work to do.


Man United 2-2 Chelsea

I can see this being a high scoring game. Both teams' defences have been very poor to start the season.

Losing Martial is a blow to United, but they have a very good replacement in the shape of Edison Cavani.

I'm predicting Werner to score a brace for Chelsea, with Rashford and Fernandes netting for the hosts.
