Manchester United return to Premier League action on Saturday as they prepare to face Chelsea at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils will have been buoyed by an impressive away performance in France as they managed to kick off their 2020/21 UEFA Champions League campaign with a 2-1 victory over Paris Saint-Germain last Tuesday.
However, performances in the Premier League arguably need to improve as the club have had some rather mixed fortunes in recent outings.
Whilst the club managed to produce a solid 4-1 victory at the expense of Newcastle United last weekend, they had been drubbed by former manager Jose Mourinho and his Tottenham Hotspur side prior to the international break.
Nonetheless, the match against Chelsea will provide Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side the perfect opportunity to show they can compete with their rivals and bettors can get in on the action if they head to the website online-betting.org prior to the game to find a bookmaker with the best offers available!
However, there may be some concerning injury news that they will hope manages to sort itself out prior to the game.
Both Harry Maguire and Mason Greenwood could be missing for the Old Trafford meeting, as they both remain doubtful after missing the midweek trip to Paris following injury.
Jesse Lingard, Eric Bailly and Anthony Martial will all definitely miss the game via injuries and suspensions, however the Frenchman’s absence could mean a debut for Edinson Cavani.
In an interview conducted with the manager on the club’s official website, Solskjaer was asked about the injury concerns and replied with the following:
No, there is nothing that we’ve struggled with after the game. Of course, there’s tiredness of the travel and little aches and pains but I think everyone should be ready for the weekend.
We’re still hoping Mason and Harry can be available in the squad. Of course, we have a training session today [Friday], so they’re going to have to go through that. Eric won’t be available. Jesse won’t be available so we’ll manage without them for a few weeks I think.
Solskjaer would further add that Cavani had been impressing in training in regards to his desire to get himself as fit as possible, whilst his attitude to training had also been praised.
The Norwegian manager appeared to stop short about whether the Uruguayan will make an appearance against Chelsea this weekend.
“He might be ready for the squad as well for this weekend,” Ole explains in our interview, which you can read in full on Saturday morning.
“He’s been training hard and been training well.
“I think he’ll be available for the weekend.”
