CONFIRMED: Smalling, Bailly, Rashford, Pogba and Ibrahimovic start against Chelsea

Manchester United face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this afternoon. United have not won at Chelsea since the 28th October 2012, nearly four years to the day. Before that, their last win goes right back to 2002, which is poor against the Londoners. Jose Mourinho will be up for spoiling the show in his return to his former home, something that would see United reign supreme over the Blues, which will be a massive confidence booster ahead of the second Manchester derby of the season against Manchester City in the EFL Cup at Old Trafford on Wednesday night. United have played well recently, drawing their last two Premier League matches against Stoke City and Liverpool, beating Robin van Persie’s Fenerbahçe 4-1 at Old Trafford on Thursday night, putting United in with a chance to frustrate this Chelsea side who have recently been defeated by both Arsenal and Liverpool. Here are the starting XI and list of substitutes for both teams this afternoon.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Blind;

Fellaini, Herrera;

Lingard, Pogba, Rashford;

Ibrahimovic

Substitutes:

Romero; Rojo, Darmian; Mata, Carrick, Young; Martial

Chelsea:

Courtois;

Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill;

Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso;

Pedro, Costa, Hazard

Substitutes:

Begovic; Terry, Aina; Oscar, Willian, Chalobah; Batshuayi
