McTominay starts: 4-2-3-1 Man United XI prediction against Chelsea
Manchester United now have another long season ahead after ending last year without a spot in the top four of the Premier League.
The target this time will clearly be to compete with the rest of the top six sides in the league, while sealing a place in the Champions League for next season.
And on the first day of the new campaign comes a significant test against Chelsea, who earned a vital point in this same fixture last season to end United’s faint hopes of finishing in the top four of the Premier League.
Defenders Eric Bailly and Timothy Fosu-Mensah are are still on the sidelines due to injuries, while Alexis Sanchez lacks match fitness.
Paul Pogba has recovered from a back injury but United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still has a few players missing and therefore, Scott McTominay, who often brings sheer effort to the pitch, is on course for a start.
