Manchester United’s 22-man travelling party has been spotted at Stockport Station ahead of their Sunday afternoon game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho will be seeking a more positive result on his latest trip down to London after suffering a 4-0 loss last season in the same fixture and can boast an almost fully fit squad, bar one obvious absentee.
Romelu Lukaku will be available to face his former club, who sought to sign him for a second time this summer only to lose out to United in the transfer window. He could be joined on the pitch by two other ex-Chelsea regulars in Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic.
Argentinian defender Marcos Rojo could make his first appearance since April but Paul Pogba remains out and did not travel with the squad from Stockport.
Chelsea vs Manchester United
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is still working on his own recovery from injury but both Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford will be on hand to fill in the gaps up front with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Maurouane Fellaini also sighted on their way to the train.
The Armenian and the Belgian are very different players and Mourinho will be able to adjust his approach by selecting one or both in his starting line-up or using them as impact substitutes off the bench.
United’s players and staff were seen leaving for London by Manchester Evening News. The full list of sightings can be found below.
