Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be boosted by the presence of the Spaniard, who performed brilliantly at Stamford Bridge in February, along with the return of McTominay, in a midfield which looked fatigued and in need of reinforcement against Manchester City. The 22-year-old had failed a fitness test ahead of Wednesday’s 0-2 defeat.
Defeat for Man United – now with a grim record of seven defeats in nine games – would effectively kill off any hopes of Champions League football next season.
Here is the full squad ahead of a crucial encounter at Old Trafford against Maurizio Sarri’s men.
United squad vs Chelsea:
De Gea, Romero, Grant
Darmian, Dalot, Young, Jones, Smalling, Bailly, Lindelof, Rojo, Shaw
Herrera, Pereira, Fred, Pogba, McTominay, Matic, Mata, Lingard
