Chelsea Vs Manchester United Match Date, Venue And Possible Lineup

A Premier League match between Chelsea football club and Manchester United football club will take place on Sunday, February 28th at the Stamford Bridge stadium in London at exactly 17:30 hours East African Time on the 28th. 

This will be the first time the two clubs will face this season, according to the schedule. Because both teams appear to be quite powerful, it will be a very difficult and contested game. 

The following is the best possible starting lineup that the two clubs might utilize against one another. 

Chelsea football club lineup

Chelsea could deploy a 5-2-3 system, with Eduard Mendy starting at the far post following his strong performances this season, as well as his record of keeping numerous clean sheets in the English Premier League. 

Attacking 

Romelu Lukaku, a former Manchester United striker, will lead the Blues' attack against the Red Devils, aiming to destroy and quiet them. 

Romelu Lukaku has returned to training and is expected to be available for selection against Manchester United. 

Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount will be assigned to the left and right wing positions, respectively, in the upcoming season. The duo's speed, dribbling ability, shooting accuracy, and power make them a nightmare for opposing defenses, and they are a constant source of frustration for them. 

Midfield 

Chelsea's midfield will be manned by Mateo Kovacic and N'Golo Kante, who will ensure that the club appears well-organized. 

Defense 

In the wing back positions, Reece James will play on the right and Ben Chilwell will play on the left, respectively. The two have posed a significant threat to their opponents, since they have scored from this position on numerous occasions. 

Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, and Andreas Christensen are three center backs who have been in excellent form for Chelsea this season and could be called upon to fill the position. In the English Premier League, Chelsea's defense have only conceded two goals in open play. 

Lineup for the Manchester United football club

David De Gea, the number one goalkeeper for Manchester United, will start in the goalpost position. 

Attacking 

In addition to playing as a false nine, Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford will play on the wing alongside Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Midfield 

The role of offensive midfielder will be played by Bruno Fernandes, with Paul Pogba and MC Scott Tominay playing the role of central midfielders. 

Defense 

As for the back four, Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane are expected to start at center back, with Aaron Wan Bissaka and Luke Shaw at full back.
