Manchester United vs Chelsea - Manchester United’s Herrera out for Chelsea clash

Ander Herrera is out of Manchester United’s Premier League clash against Chelsea and the next few weeks.

The Spain midfielder’s attempted backheel at Sevilla in the Champions League aggravated a muscular injury, meaning Paul Pogba could return to the starting line-up.

Marouane Fellaini, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Daley Blind, Marcos Rojo and Phil Jones remain absent, while Eric Bailly is in line to make his first United start since November.

Chelsea will continue to be without injured trio David Luiz, Ross Barkley and Tiemoue Bakayoko.

Defender Luiz is out with an ankle issue, while Barkley has a hamstring problem and fellow midfielder Bakayoko has an unspecified knock.

Strikers Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud are pushing for starts after Blues manager Antonio Conte opted to play Eden Hazard as a false nine in the midweek Champions League draw with Barcelona.
