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

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

Manchester United will be looking to make it back-to-back wins under caretaker manager Michael Carrick when they head to Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Carrick led the Red Devils to a 2-0 victory over Villarreal in the Champions League on Tuesday, which saw the 20-time English champions book their spot in the knockout round of the competition.

Man United have lost five of their last seven Premier League games, though, which has seen them drop down into eighth position in the table, six points off the top four.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the team's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's trip to table-topping Chelsea.

Possible return date: November 28 (vs. Chelsea)

Mason Greenwood was ruled out of Saturday's clash with Watford and Tuesday's game with Villarreal after testing positive for coronavirus, but the attacker could potentially return here depending on when he went into self-isolation.
