Premier League leaders Chelsea will take on Manchester United without a coach this weekend in a top blockbuster.
Thomas Tuchel’s Blues have been superb so far this season and crushed Leicester last weekend to stay top of the table.
United, meanwhile, have had a scorching few weeks and parted ways with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after last Saturday’s horror show at Watford.
Michael Carrick is in temporary charge of the Red Devils and he helped them strike back midweek with a Champions League win over Villarreal.
But facing fit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge will be a huge challenge for a United side that will always struggle to gain confidence.
