Premier League

Michael Carrick face selection Headache as four dependable players ruled out ahead of Chelsea clash.

Manchester United are set to welcome their bitter rivals Chelsea in their next fixture this weekend. The big game comes around when the situation with the Red Devils side is not looking good in the Premier league.

With last facing thunder in a thrashing 4-1 in the hands of Watford at Vicarage, Michael Carrick's men will face yet another formidable and the most consistent side without their best players.

As it's good news for Chelsea to welcome back Romelu Lukaku who suffered an injury, it is devastating and dire situation for Manchester United to miss out Varane, Harry Maguire, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw.

Harry Maguire faces suspension after he was shown two yellow cards when he tripped Watford winger- Sarr. He will be out for the next two matches and that means the dependable defender will miss out on Chelsea clash. Varane suffers a thigh injury and that means only Eric Bailey ,who has been struggling for minutes , will have his chance.

Luke Shaw who could have played the centre back role is a worry. He did not travel to Spain in their Champions league game against Villareal and might not be available for selection as such this weekend.

With the four players out, do you think Manchester United will pose any threat to the so far outstanding Chelsea? Let me know in comments section.
