Chelsea vs Manchester United team news and live stream: Carrick’s Red Devils to face table-toppers in Premier League showdown – kick-off time, latest news and match stats

Premier League leaders Chelsea take on Manchester United in what is expected to be Michael Carrick’s last game in temporary charge this weekend.

Thomas Tuchel’s Blues have been superb so far this season and smashed Leicester last weekend to stay top of the table.

Michael Carrick is in temporary charge of the Red Devils and he helped them hit back in midweek with a Champions League win over Villarreal.

United are set to confirm Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager but his work permit won’t come through in time to be in the dugout against the Blues.

Chelsea v Man United: Date and time

The Premier League clash is set to take place on Sunday, November 28.

It will take place at Stamford Bridge with a kick-off time of 4:30pm.

Chelsea v Man United: Team news

Ben Chilwell is set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines following his injury in midweek while N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic are also set to miss out.

Tuchel said: “Kova is still out for the game on Sunday. N’Golo twisted his knee a little bit against Juventus and feels better but it seems he will be out for some days. We still have a little hope but it’s almost a miracle if he makes it.

“Ben is out, he has a partial tear of his ACL, and the decision is to treat it conservatively.

“The next six weeks will tell the story if he makes it and be available or if he will need surgery.”

Kai Havertz is still a bout due to a slight hamstring issue while Tuchel also confirmed that Romelu Lukaku will most likely start on the bench.

For United, Harry Maguire is suspended following his red card against Watford while fellow centre-back Raphael Varane remains out.

Paul Pogba is also injured while the club will need to check on Luke Shaw, Mason Greenwood, Fred and Edinson Cavani.

Donny van de Beek and Anthony Martial are among those pushing for starts.

Chelsea v Man United: What has been said?

Tuchel was quizzed on whether it is a good time to play the Red Devils:

He said: “I don’t know if it’s ever a good time to play against teams because that would mean we know something or predict something.

“We will not lose too many minutes thinking about this and put all our energy and focus into our team.

“We are up for the big challenges and we want to be out there playing at the highest level. We want to prove a point.

“We have just come from a hard match and now we are onto the next one. We will be challenged at the highest level again on Sunday.”

Chelsea v Man United: Match facts

  • Chelsea are winless in their last seven Premier League games against Man Utd, only having a longer run without a league win against the Red Devils once before (10 games between 1938 and 1950).
  • Manchester United have kept a clean sheet in each of their last four Premier League meetings with Chelsea – the only team to record a shutout in more consecutive league games against the Blues is Newcastle United, who did six in a row between 1913 and 1919.
  • In all competitions, Manchester United have won three of their last four away games against Chelsea (D1), having won just three of their previous 25 visits to Stamford Bridge before this.
  • This is the fifth time Chelsea have hosted Manchester United in a Premier League game when starting the day as the league leaders. The Blues have won three of the previous four (L1), going on to win the title in the season of each of the three victories (2005-06, 2009-10 and 2014-15).
  • Manchester United are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League away games in London (W7 D4), winning each of their last three in a row. They last won four consecutive league visits to the capital between May and November 2005.
  • League leaders Chelsea have conceded just four goals in their 12 Premier League games this season. Only the Blues themselves (3 in 2004-05) have shipped fewer at this stage of an English top-flight campaign.
  • Manchester United have lost five of their last seven Premier League games (W1 D1), as many as they had in their previous 42 in the competition. They’ve lost their two league games (vs Man City and Watford), but haven’t lost three in a row since December 2015.
  • Michael Carrick will be the first Englishman to take charge of Manchester United in a league game since Ron Atkinson in November 1986 (1-1 vs Coventry). Four of the five managers to take charge of the Red Devils since Alex Ferguson left have won their first league game in charge, with Louis van Gaal the exception (1-2 vs Swansea in August 2014).
  • Manchester United caretaker manager Michael Carrick will be the 14th different manager to take charge of his first ever Premier League game against Chelsea. 10 of the previous 13 to do so have lost (W1 D2), with Duncan Ferguson the only one to emerge triumphant (3-1 in December 2019).
  • Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku has only scored in one of his 11 Premier League appearances against Manchester United, netting a hat-trick as a substitute for West Brom in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final game in charge of the Red Devils in May 2013.
  • In all competitions, Man Utd’s Cristiano Ronaldo has scored just one goal in 15 appearances against Chelsea, doing so in the 2008 Champions League final. The Blues are the side he’s faced the most without ever scoring against in top-flight football (10 games).
