Manchester United coach Rangnick has given an update on his players’ injury lists, announcing that Harry Maguire and Jadon Sancho, among others, will miss the game in tonight’s clash against Chelsea, set to be held at Old Trafford.
The Premier League game promises to be exciting, but the Red Devils are dealing with an injury issue as the season draws to a close. Sancho is suffering from tonsillitis, according to the German, while Maguire has a small knee issue. Rangnick claims that Edinson
Cavani, Fred, Luke Shaw, and Paul Pogba are among those who will miss out, while right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka is also a concern. When asked if young players could be featured in the squad, the 63-year-old replied, “It’s possible.”
We’ll be without a number of players, and one or two are still questionable. We have to be fair to those players; the timing has to be perfect. “
“They should have a chance to play well and perform well,” he said. It’s not just about forcing kids into a game; it should also be at the correct time. ” The game will begin at 19:45 p.m. UK time at Old Trafford. The Blues are third in the table, with their opponents sixth and six points back.
Tuchel, Thomas Chelsea have not won at Old Trafford since 2013 and will try to take advantage of the Red Devils’ poor form after defeating West Ham in their last game. Manchester United entered the game having suffered back-to-back defeats at the hands of rivals Liverpool and Arsenal.
The Red Devils fell 4-0 at Anfield before dropping 3-1 at the Emirates to their top-four rivals. On the other hand, Chelsea defeated one of Manchester United’s Champions League rivals, West Ham, with a last-minute Christian Pulisic goal.
Manchester United are on a terrible roll, having won only one of their past six games – at home against bottom-of-the-table Norwich City. As a result, Chelsea should be able to hold off their rivals and record their first win at Old Trafford since 2013, as well as their first league victory over the Red Devils since 2017.
The sheer quantity of first-team absences should be cause for concern. The sheer number of first-team absentees should instill confidence in the Blues ahead of the match. Chelsea should have an easy trip if Chelsea shows up and plays at their best.
