Latest Man Utd injury news and return dates ahead of Chelsea as Solskjaer reveals double boost

After the winter break, Manchester United face Chelsea in what could prove to be a pivotal game in the race for a top four spot.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side know a win would be huge, especially after dropping points in recent weeks against Burnley and Wolves at Old Trafford.

They take on a Chelsea side who have also been in inconsistent form, with Blues boss Frank Lampard admitting that his team lack depth in attacking areas – and with the knowledge that they have already beaten Lampard’s side at home and away this season in the Premier League and FA Cup.
