Manchester United v Chelsea

Manchester United are seeking a return to winning ways after back-to-back defeats hit their hopes of a top-four finish. 

Chelsea are three points above their hosts and know a victory would keep them in control of UEFA Champions League qualification with two matches remaining.

Team news

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says Ander Herrera is likely to be involved after recovering from a hamstring injury, while Scott McTominay will have a fitness test after missing Wednesday's derby against Manchester City.

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is in contention after overcoming a knee injury, but N'Golo Kante (rib) is a doubt and Callum Hudson-Odoi (Achilles) is facing a three-month lay-off at least.
