On Sunday, Manchester United’s caretaker manager will take charge of his first Premier League match.

After a 2-0 win against Villarreal on Tuesday, United travels to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea.

Before releasing the counterattack, the gameplan will be similar to the one that gained the victory in Spain: be compact, disciplined, and patient.

As a result, there aren’t expected to be many alterations to the starting lineup.


Captain Harry Maguire is suspended for this game after receiving a red card in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s final game in charge against Watford.

With Raphael Varane out, Eric Bailly is a perfect match to fill in for him and join Victor Lindelof.

In a 2-2 draw against Atalanta, he was excellent, but in his most recent match, a 2-0 Manchester derby defeat, he chopped in an own goal within minutes of kick-off.

Luke Shaw’s fitness is still in doubt, but if he is able to play, we believe he will replace Alex Telles at left-back.

Bruno Fernandes or Donny van de Beek is Carrick’s key midfield dilemma. On Tuesday, he showed his faith in the Dutchman, and we expect him to maintain him in the lineup here, with Scott McTominay anchoring the midfield.

In Spain, Marcus Rashford performed better as a replacement than Anthony Martial did as a starter, and we believe the Englishman will start here.

Jadon Sancho and Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored on Tuesday, are expected to start.

Shaw, Bailly, and Rashford are all in. Telles, Maguire, and Martial are all out.

Three changes are sufficient to keep the team fresh and Thomas Tuchel guessing while remaining true to the Villarreal model.

Carrick’s only league game as manager is to be against Arsenal on Thursday, as Ralf Rangnick appears to be on the verge of being appointed. A win at home against the league leaders would be a fantastic way to end the season.
