Man Utd Couch confirms massive injury blow as 6 key players to miss Chelsea clash
Chelsea maybe lucky on Thursday, because Man Utd boss is now worried about his 6 key players were on injury which give Thomas Tuchel the Chelsea boss advantage of Wining the game.
Chelsea will be looking forward to continuing their winning streak after a narrow win against West Ham as the Blues are set to play an away match against Manchester United on Thursday night.
However, ahead of the match against Chelsea, Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has confirmed that six of his players will miss the team’s Premier League clash with Chelsea on April 28.
The Red Devils have had a woeful season that has seen them exit all cup competitions and will most likely miss the Premier League top four. They currently trail fourth-placed Arsenal by six points having played a game more than the Gunners.
Chelsea is in third place and will look to inflict more damage on a broken Manchester United side that has seemingly reached rock-bottom.
According to Samuel Luckhurst, Rangnick has said that Harry Maguire, Jadon Sancho, Fred, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and Luke Shaw will miss the Chelsea game at Old Trafford.
With United’s top-four hopes all but over, Rangnick could rest key players and field more youngsters.
Rangnick won’t be in charge at the end of the season, with current Ajax manager Erik ten Hag coming in to replace him.
The Dutch coach is already making plans ahead for next season to gain an insight into his squad and is set to commence individual meetings with players. He will get to have a look at the squad at his disposal when Manchester United faces Chelsea in what could be the game that ends any fleeting hopes of a top-four finish.
Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is looking for his team to end the Premier League season on a high. They have all but confirmed UEFA Champions League football next season and are in the FA Cup final too.
Rangnick says Maguire and Sancho are out, while Wan-Bissaka is a doubt. Fred, Cavani, Pogba and Shaw also still out. Youngsters certain to make squad. #mufc

Rangnick: “We have quite a few players missing tomorrow and one or two still with question marks so we will have to wait and see until tomorrow to see if, for example, Aaron Wan-Bissaka can play.” #MUFC
