Manchester United injury news: Louis van Gaal missing key players for Chelsea clash

A look at the injury situation ahead of the game at Stamford Bridge 

Louis van Gaal's Manchester United take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League this weekend without a number of key players.

While normally a fixture that has a bearing on the title race, instead the sides find themselves in fifth and 13th.

Despite their unfamiliar surroundings in the table, Sunday's match remains among the stand-out fixtures on the Premier League calender. 

Manchester United will go into the game hoping for a repeat of the promising performance against Stoke at Old Trafford on Tuesday. The Red Devils impressed in the 3-0 win that saw Jesse Lingard, Anthony Martial and Wayne Rooney find the target.

If Van Gaal does oversee another performance of that ilk, it'll be without a number of first-team players who are currently out injured. Below, we take a look at those who are ruled out of the tie or struggling to be fit in time...


Chelsea vs Manchester United kicks off at 4pm.
