Key Man Ruled Out As Lampard Makes 4 Changes In Chelsea's Lineup Vs Manchester United [Expected]

Please do me a favour by hitting the 'follow' option and the 'like' option.

Frank Lampard's Chelsea are set for another juicy clash with arch rivals Manchester United in what appears to be a Super Sunday. This will be the fourth time in this season both team will be meeting. A win for united on Sunday will mean that they have beaten chelsea in all their clashes this season. Now talking about chelsea, Lampard will have to do everything he can to avoid another defeat at the hands of solskjaer.

The blues are expected to make 4 tactical changes to the team that beat Norwich. Chelsea have received a huge blow as one key man is set to miss Sundays clash. In a press conference on Friday, Lampard confirmed that Ngolo kante has not recovered from his thigh injury. Here is the team we expect Frank Lampard to select for the game:

Goal Keeper: Kepa's form has not really been convincing enough in the last few games. So it is likely that caballero will come in as he has started the previous rounds of the FA Cup.

Defence: Frank Lampard's defence were able to keep a valuable clean sheet against Norwich. But against Manchester United, they will have to field a much more stronger line, so we expect to see Christensen come in for zouma while Rudiger could keep his place. Against a pacy attack, Azpilicueta is expected to come in for Alonso, while James will likely occupy the left wing.

Midfield: With kante and Gilmour out injured, jorginho will likely keep his place, while kovacic could make a comeback after recovering to full fitness. Mount will be expected to be picked ahead of barkely and loftus cheek.

Attack: Giroud will be expected to come in for Abraham, while pulisic and willian will no doubt keep their places.

But personally, this is my preferred lineup....

So what do you think about the possible changes and which lineup do you think will be able to beat Manchester United? Please comment so I can know what you think and I will surely reply back. Don't forget to follow me, like and share. Thanks.
