Some Manchester United fans have reacted to their side’s lineup for today’s crucial encounter against Chelsea, United need a win to try and push for a top four spot.

United have struggled in the past two months, the Red Devils have only won two of their last nine games across all competitions, their last win came against West Ham two weeks ago, but following that victory United have lost three games in a row.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has made five changes to the team that lost to noisy neighbours Manchester City on Wednesday night, it looks as though the Red Devils will revert back to a four-man defence.

In defence Chris Smalling has been replaced by Eric Bailly, this is the Ivorian’s first match for United in almost two months. Mateo Darmian has also been dropped.

Midfielders Nemanja Matic and Ander Herrera are back in the team, replacing Andreas Pereira and Fred.

There are two changes to United’s attacking line, with Darmian’s omission giving United an extra attacking option Juan Mata enters the fray. Forward Romelu Lukaku replaces Jesse Lingard.
