The Spaniard is not too defensive and Lampard is likely to decide to move Cesar Azpilicueta to the left, and Reese James will step in from the right to face Marcus Rashford. Antonio Rüdiger and Kurt Zuma are expected to maintain their central defense position.
Mason Mount has rested against Norwich and will most likely stand for Ruben Loftus-Chake, who has not regained his form after a long layoff. Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho can play a major role in midfield because N'Golo Kante still rules out stomach problems.
Up front, Lampard might have a surprise with Tammy Abraham, but after scoring in his last match, it would be difficult to give up on Olivier Giroud. Willian and Christian Pulisic are expected to compete on the wing.
The match predicted by Chelsea XI to meet Manchester United:
Kepa, James, Rüdiger, Zouma, Azpilicueta, Kovacic, Jorginho, Berg, Willian, Giroud, Pulisic
