Team news

Edinson Cavani is in line to make his Manchester United debut having signed on a free transfer on Deadline Day. The Uruguayan had to undergo a two-week quarantine period following his arrival at Old Trafford but has been working on his fitness.

Defender Harry Maguire and forward Mason Greenwood are both in contention having been absent from the trip to Paris Saint-Germain in midweek.


Hakim Ziyech has revealed more about the phone call with Frank Lampard that convinced him to join the Premier League club

Eric Bailly has been ruled out for a month while Anthony Martial is still suspended following his red card in the defeat to Tottenham. Jesse Lingard remains a couple of weeks away from fitness.

Chelsea goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga has picked up a shoulder injury and will miss the trip. Kepa was on the bench for Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Sevilla, where Edouard Mendy kept a clean sheet in the goalless draw in west London.

But now he will miss Chelsea’s Old Trafford trip on Saturday, with veteran Willy Caballero in line to take a seat on the bench.

Billy Gilmour (knee) is the only other absentee with Hakim Ziyech hoping to add to his two appearances off the bench having returned to fitness.
