Chelsea will take on Manchester United in a Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.
United head to the game following a 3-2 victory over Newcastle in their last Premier League encounter.
The Red Devils manager, Jose Mourinho, could be without eight first-team players for this weekend’s clash, including the likes of Matic, Luke Shaw and Jesse Lingard.
Matic and Shaw were forced to withdraw from their respective national squads due to injury, while Lingard remains sidelined by a groin injury and is not expected to recover in time for the Chelsea clash.
Defender, Marcos Rojo is also still out, while midfielders: Ander Herrera, Scott McTominay and Marouane Fellaini will face late fitness tests amid concerns over their availability.
Mourinho has already decided who should get the nod between forwards: Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford.
Meanwhile, Chelsea head to the game following a 3-0 victory over Southampton in their last Premier League encounter.
The Blues manager, Maurizio Sarri’s main injury concern surrounds defender, Antonio Rudiger, who pulled out of Germany’s squad during the recent international break due to a groin problem.
Midfielder Ethan Ampadu is also a doubt for the hosts, although Sarri should be able to name a side similar to the one which defeated Southampton.
Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard is currently the league’s top scorer with seven and will hope to lead his side to victory against United.
The most recent meetings between the two teams saw Chelsea run out 1-0 winners in May’s FA Cup final, but United emerged victorious from the last Premier League clash at Old Trafford in February.
Chelsea’s potential starting XI: Kepa; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Luiz, Alonso; Kante, Jorginho, Barkley; Willian, Giroud, Hazard.
Man United’s potential starting XI: De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, Lindelof, Shaw; Fred, Fellaini, Pogba; Mata, Lukaku, Rashford.
The kick-off time for the match is 12:30pm.
