Tuchel drops star player, releases team to face Man United

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is set to be without a number of key players for Thursday’s trip to Manchester United

Chelsea will be aiming to secure back-to-back victories when they travel to Manchester United on Thursday evening. The Blues beat West Ham on Sunday to all but guarantee a top four finish thanks to Christian Pulisic’s 90th minute winner.

The west London club side are seven points clear of fifth placed Tottenham with a game in hand, and as such have little to play for in the league. However, Thomas Tuchel will be keen to build momentum and confidence ahead of next month’s FA Cup final meeting with Liverpool.

Meanwhile, Man United’s hopes of playing Champions League football next season are all but over after back-to-back defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal respectively. Nevertheless, they will be keen to finish in the top six and secure European football, but there’s still work to be done on that front with West Ham and Wolves in close proximity.

Chelsea are set to be without a number of key players for Thursday’s trip to Old Trafford. Mateo Kovacic and Callum Hudson Odoi will both miss out, and there are still concerns over the fitness of Andreas Christensen.

With all of that being said, takes a look at the full squad that Tuchel will have at his disposal against the Red Devils.

Goalkeepers: Edouard Mendy, Kepa Arrizabalaga, Marcus Bettinelli

Defenders : Trevoh Chalobah, Malang Sarr, Thiago Silva, Marcos Alonso, Reece James, Cesar Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen

Midfielders: N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Saul Niguez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Mason Mount

Forwards : Kenedy, Kai Havertz, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, Romelu Lukaku, Timo Werner
