Paul Pogba is named in Manchester United's starting XI for Sunday's Premier League game against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba has been named in Manchester United's starting XI for Sunday's Premier League game against Chelsea at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman missed out on a place in the starting lineup for United's last two matches but is drafted back in as a replacement for the injured Ander Herrera.

Pogba is part of a midfield three along with Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay as Jose Mourinho opts for a 4-3-3 with an attacking trident of Alexis Sanchez, Anthony Martial and Romelu Lukaku.

There are two changes in all from the midweek goalless draw with Sevilla in the Champions League, with Juan Mata making way for Martial, while Eric Bailly is named on the bench.

Chelsea also make two alterations following their 1-1 draw with Barcelona in midweek.

Antonio Conte hands Danny Drinkwater a start alongside N'Golo Kante in midfield, while Alvaro Morata returns to the starting XI.

Manchester United: De Gea; Valencia, Lindelof, Smalling, Young; McTominay, Matic, Pogba; Sanchez, Lukaku, Martial
Subs: Pereira, Bailly, Shaw, Carrick, Mata, Lingard, Rashford

Chelsea: Courtois; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger; Moses, Drinkwater, Kante, Alonso; Willian, Morata, Hazard
Subs: Caballero, Cahill, Zappacosta, Emerson, Fabregas, Pedro, Giroud
