Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Chelsea

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Manchester United will be looking to make it three straight victories in all competitions when they welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Red Devils recorded a thumping 4-1 win away to Newcastle United in their last league game on Saturday before beating Paris Saint-Germain 2-1 in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side have therefore won both of their matches since the 6-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur before the international break and will be determined to pick up another three points here.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Chelsea, who have picked up eight points from their first five league games of the season.
