The good news for the Blues is that Romelu Lukaku is primed to return. Marcos Alonso and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will likely come in for Chilwell and Kante, though Tuchel could also use Cesar Azpilicueta as the left wing-back or at centre-back in place of Trevoh Chalobah.
United will miss Harry Maguire after his red card humiliation at Vicarage Road, with Raphael Varane’s injury meaning Eric Bailly is due to start. Paul Pogba is a long-term absentee, with Edinson Cavani, Luke Shaw and Mason Greenwood (Covid) all doubts.
Man Utd vs Chelsea: Where to watch, TV channel, kick-off time, date
Michael Carrick is in charge for the time being, but this will be his final game in charge as interim boss, with Ralf Rangnick striking an agreement to take charge for the remainder of the season.
Thomas Tuchel’s side come into the contest approaching their best form after easily beating Juventus midweek and a win at United following last weekend’s thrashing of Leicester would make for a perfect nine days for the European champions.

WHAT’S THE TEAM NEWS?
With the exception of those Reds who have been ruled out for the season – Lisandro Martinez, Marcel Sabitzer and Donny van de Beek – the only availability concern appears to be around Marcus Rashford. Our leading scorer missed the Wolves win through injury and was set to return at Bournemouth before reporting ill on the eve of the game. Erik ten Hag could provide an update on his no.10 when he appears before the media at midday on Wednesday for his pre-match press conference.
Scott McTominay returned to action as a substitute on Saturday, while goalkeeper Tom Heaton has also been training recently following his absence.
Chelsea may have to cope without a number of first-team players, with Benoit Badiashile the latest addition to the injury list. The centre-back tweaked his groin in training last week and could be out of action for up to four months, according to reports.
N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Mason Mount are also doubts, while the Blues have issues at full-back with Ben Chilwell, Reece James and Marc Cucurella spending time on the sidelines recently. Youngster Lewis Hall has started Chelsea’s most recent two league outings at left wing-back. Kalidou Koulibaly managed nine minutes against Manchester City after six weeks out with a hamstring injury.
The Reds have recovered from our early May blip and the victory over Wolves at home was followed up by Saturday’s hard-fought win on the south coast. Casemiro’s early acrobatic effort was enough to see off the challenge of already-safe Bournemouth and, coupled with Liverpool’s home draw with Aston Villa, increased our points advantage to the Merseysiders from one to three. Jurgen Klopp’s men have just one fixture left to play, as they visit relegated Southampton on Sunday.
Frank Lampard’s men, meanwhile, will be keen for their campaign of struggle to end. The Blues were beaten 1-0 by newly crowned champions Manchester City on Sunday – their 15th league defeat of the season – and have won only once in Lampard’s nine games as interim boss. Thursday’s visitors have also struggled for goals in the absence of a reliable central striker. A run of seven goals in three games prior to the City trip boosted their figures but only Everton, Wolves and Southampton have scored fewer than the 36 they’ve mustered this season.
Chelsea want former Arsenal goalkeeper Szczesny
It is no shock to see the Blues in the market for a goalkeeper. Edouard Mendy’s form has dropped off, while the jury still seems to be out on Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Szczesny, 33, has had an illustrious career. The ‘world-class‘ star has managed to win nine trophies over his career. This includes two FA Cups.
The elephant in the room is the fact that the player used to feature in between the sticks for Chelsea’s London rivals Arsenal.
He made 181 appearances for the Gunners from 2010 until 2015, playing for legendary Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger.
Nonetheless, the Blues will finish in mid-table this campaign and desperately need to sort out their issues.
They need good experience and players who are of good quality now. Szczesny definitely seems like a better option than Chelsea’s current goalkeepers right now.
With the club spending a lot of money this season, they will definitely need to be a lot more sensible with who they purchase this summer.
