Chelsea vs Man Utd: Carrick on benching Ronaldo

Michael Carrick spoke to Sky Sports about his Manchester United starting XI and why he felt it was best to start Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench. Hy het gesê:

Few tweaks and changes from the other night, freshen things up a bit. Gameplan, ideas. Had a good chat with Ronaldo and he was great, we have decided to go like that today.

“It is a decision to pick a team, don’t think it needs any more drama than that. Everyone is fine, all the boys who have come out of the team have been terrific, Crisitiano included and ready to come on if needed.”

Chelsea vs Man Utd

Reaction from Manchester City’s win over West Ham is still to come but now the focus moves to Stamford Bridge where league leaders Chelsea take on Manchester United. Here are the two line-ups:

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Rudiger, James, Jorginho, Loftus-Cheek, Alonso, Ziyech, Werner, Hudson-Odoi

Man Utd XI: De Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Bailly, Telles, McTominay, Matic, Fred, Sancho, Fernandes, Rashford

There’s no Cristiano Ronaldo for Man Utd who has to settle for a place on the bench as caretaker boss Michael Carrick elects to go with three holding midfielders and pace up top through Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford.

Chelsea set up in their familiar 3-4-3 formation. N’Golo Kante and Ben Chilwell are injured so there are starts for Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Marcos Alonso whilst Timo Werner is given the nod ahead of Romelu Lukaku to lead the line.
