Manchester United will be visiting Chelsea in a week on Monday in a game which will prove to be vital in the race of Champions League qualification next season.

The good news is that many crucial Chelsea players, including Christian Pulisic will be making a comeback from their injuries, however, the visitors are expected to miss out on several key players.

Marcus Rashford will certainly miss the game in the capital because of a back injury, but Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay have been making good progress ahead of the trip.

They’ll have a week or so off and we’ve got more days [rest] because we’re playing Chelsea on Monday,” Solskjaer said, as per the Manchester Evening News.

“So we’ll get together on Saturday and we’ll have a good camp, working on different things. Of course, we’ve got a few new players, hopefully, we can integrate them into the squad.

“[The players] have been fantastic. We’ve had to, with all the injuries we’ve had, rely on many of these to maybe play more games than they should, and they’ve been brilliant.

“Yes, we’ve had ups and downs, but it shows that we do miss the injured players so, yeah, it’ll be a nice break and I think it’s about time we had that in England.

“I think all teams will get their energy levels back.”

Just six points separate the two teams in the table and the onus is on the Red Devils to win the game in order to reignite their top-four bid which has stuttered since the turn of the year.
