Match preview

The Premier League returns after the international break with a big-name early kick-off. It used to be one of the most exciting games of the season and still when we see these names together we are thrust back to 2012/13 when goals were flying in and games between the rivals would end 3-3, 3-2 and 5-4.

Gone are those days and you need only look at the last 5 fixtures, which have offered an average of 0.8 goals a game, to realize this is most likely to be a cagey affair. Add to this, that it is the first time the two managers will have played each other. Two managers, who are cautious at best.

Lingard is still currently out of the team due to injury, but some reports suggest that he may be fit enough to make the squad. Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic were withdrawn from international duties, due to injury concerns. Herrera recently returned to injury but is not expected to make it for this game.

Rüdiger, who is enjoy a mini-revival under Sarri, has been ruled out of the squad after suffering an injury with Germany over the weekend.

The bookies have Chelsea as clear favourites and a draw as more likely than a Man Utd win. Jose Mourinho is still odds on favourite to be the next manager to be sacked - but expect odds to shift dramatically depending on the outcome of this match.
