United attacking duo likely to return against Chelsea


Jose Mourinho will have been pleased with what he saw from his Manchester United side following their 4-1 thrashing of Fenerbahce.

The Red Devils eased into a three-goal lead before the half-time whistle thanks to penalties from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial, before the former added a third with a superb strike from outside the box.

Jesse Lingard made it four shortly after the interval, proving Mourinho’s men can offer up goals from all over the pitch.

All the same, the Special One is likely to ring the changes before heading to Chelsea for the first time as United manager.


After another uninspired performance, Wayne Rooney is likely to drop down to the bench again, but Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford should re-enter the starting XI, as per

Lingard has done enough to keep his place, but Mourinho will know he needs his players to go at Chelsea all guns blazing if they are to shake Antonio Conte’s side.

United simply can’t afford to play Rooney again in such a big game, or at the very least, they can’t start him.
