Starting XI: Manchester United v Chelsea – Premier League 2 2016/17

Manchester United U23’s face Chelsea in the Premier League 2 at Leigh Sports Village this afternoon. Warren Joyce’s side will be looking to get back to winning ways after their 2-0 away defeat to Southampton on Monday evening. United, the current holders of the last Barclays U21 Premier League trophy have some problems to get over in order to rise from the poor form. Joyce called his players ‘deluded’ with his player’s desire and ambition also questioned after Monday’s defeat on the South Coast, in which United played their third competitive match of the season without a striker, which is something that cannot go on. Chelsea will be a tough match for United, one that the home side need to pull together and ensure they get a result, or be left wondering what will be this season, as they head into the international break.
