Chelsea squad to face Man Utd confirmed

2 min read

The Chelsea squad have arrived in Manchester ahead of their Premier League fixture at Old Trafford on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s men take on Manchester United in a game that could have a big say in both sides’ end-of-season fortunes.

Last season, both United and Chelsea went down to the last day fighting for a top four spot, with both ultimately qualifying for the Champions League at Leicester’s expense. After a summer where both sides have recruited in key positions, it has taken them time to gel at the start of the new season with mixed results so far.

United sit in 15th in the Premier League with six points from four games, while Chelsea are two points ahead in eighth having played a game more. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer masterminded a league double over Chelsea last season, including the opening day 4-0 win at Old Trafford, plus an impressive Carabao Cup win at Stamford Bridge before losing the FA Cup semi final to Chelsea at Wembley.

Chelsea have had issues with their goalkeepers already this season, and new signing Edouard Mendy was spotted arriving with the squad on Friday evening, along with under-fire Kepa Arrizabalaga and back-up goalkeeper Willy Caballero.

Summer signings Timo Werner, Kai Havertz and Thiago Silva were among the players arriving, as was fit-again Christian Pulisic.

Staying at the Hilton Garden Inn at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, Chelsea will only have a short journey to United. A total of 18 players were spotted, including two who could not be identified behind their facemasks. Photographers did not spot Callum Hudson-Odoi or Andreas Christensen, but that is not to say they were not part of the travelling squad.

Chelsea squad members spotted:

Kepa, Mendy, Caballero, James, Emerson, Azpilicueta, Silva, Chilwell, Mount, Kovacic, Kante, Pulisic, Havertz, Abraham, Giroud, Werner
