4-2-3-1 Man United’s predicted XI vs Chelsea: Matic to return in midfield?


Man United have been Crystal Palace in the English Premier League and next up, they shift their focus to the semi-final of the FA Cup.

The Red Devils take on Chelsea on Sunday and they go into this match as the slight favourites, primarily given the kind of form that they are in right now.

Man United are undefeated in their last 5 matches in the FA Cup and if their forwards can be in sync on again, then Solskjaer will surely be looking at another easy win during the weekend.

Manchester United have not tasted defeat since the resumption of the 19-20 season and on top of that, Chelsea are yet to pick up a win against the Old Trafford outfit this campaign.

Man United team news vs Chelsea:

Sergio Romero has been the cup keeper for Man United and we think Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will stick to this plan on Sunday as well.

Lindelof and Harry Maguire have been the first-choice centre-backs for Ole for the current season but it will not be a surprise if Lindelof makes way for Eric Bailly who has played very little since the resumption.

Wan-Bissaka will keep his place at right-back but the left-back role will be a major headache for the manager.

Luke Shaw and Williams both missed out on Thursday with respective injuries and we still do not know if either of them will be fully fit to play to face Chelsea or not.

Against Palace, Fosu-Mensah played at left-back but we have a feeling that Brandon Williams should be fit to play on Sunday since his injury is not too serious.

Scott McTominay started at Selhurst Park but the academy graduate will surely be replaced by Nemanja Matic in central midfield alongside Paul Pogba.

Greenwood has been a bit on the downside during the past two matches but the youngster will surely start up front beside Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.

Man United’s predicted XI vs Chelsea:

Predicted Starting XI: Sergio Romero; Eric Bailly/Lindelof, Maguire, Wan-Bissaka, Brandon Williams; Matic, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes; Rashford, Martial, Greenwood.
