After four games without a win, Manchester United bounced back from two goals down to defeat Newcastle United. Next up, the Red Devils will collide against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge when the PL returns after the international break.
The Blues are currently in second place and on the other hand, the Old Trafford club are 7 points behind in eighth place. Can Mourinho upset his former side in their own backyard? We shall see.
As far as United’s team is concerned, at the moment, no fewer than six players are out injured.
In the last contest vs the Magpies, the likes of Luke Shaw and Nemanja Matic started but now the former is suffering from a knock and the latter has got an ankle injury (PhysioRoom).
As per the provided PhysioRoom link, the good news for Man United is that the Serbian international is expected to recover from his ankle concern to feature against his former team.
The 30-year-old star is one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League and easily the best play breaker in the United squad. Jose Mourinho will need him to be fit against the high flying Chelsea side, who have already scored 18 goals in 8 games.
