Harry Maguire and Juan Mata start but Edinson Cavani only finds a place on the bench as Manchester United prepare to welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reverted to the side that started in the 4-1 win over Newcastle United last weekend in the Premier League as Manchester United get set to lock horns with Chelsea at Old Trafford.

In goal, there is no looking past David de Gea. In front of him, Manchester United have reverted to the 4-2-3-1 formation, with the big news being the availability of Harry Maguire. Maguire pairs up with Victor Lindelof at the heart of the Manchester United defence, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw being the two full-backs.

Up ahead in midfield, Scott McTominay and Fred form the double pivot once again, with Paul Pogba and former Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic missing out. Bruno Fernandes, meanwhile, reprises the no. 10 role yet again, meaning it’s a place on the bench once again for Donny van de Beek.

Finally, in attack, there are two players who return to the starting lineup, those being the two wingers Juan Mata and Daniel James. Marcus Rashford leads the line for Manchester United against Chelsea, with Edinson Cavani on the bench, meaning he waits for his full debut.

Manchester United Starting Lineup: de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, Fred, McTominay, Mata, Bruno Fernandes, James, Rashford
