Man Utd vs Chelsea: Erik Ten Hag's men aiming to secure Champions League spot against Blues – stream, TV channel, odds | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED take on Chelsea in their penultimate Premier League game of the season – and they need just one point to qualify for next season's Champions League.

The Red Devils beat Bournemouth 1-0 thanks to a quality goal from Casemiro last weekend to move an inch closer to European football.

The Blues, however, were beaten 1-0 by Manchester City as Frank Lampard slipped to his seventh defeat in nine games in charge of Chelsea.

And their season finishes with two tough clashes against United and Newcastle, who qualified for the Champions League on Monday night.

United go into the game at Old Trafford with the Champions League in their sights, knowing a point will see them qualify.

Erik ten Hag's side will have another chance, thanks to their three-point lead over Liverpool, if they lose to the Blues as they face Fulham on the final day of the season.

Chelsea, however, are playing for pride after seeing their season collapse over the last few months.

The Blues were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid and have dropped into the bottom half of the table.

Lampard's side can only hope for an eleventh-placed finish if they can overtake Crystal Palace in their final two games.

A win over United would be an excellent start for the Blues, as they are currently only one point behind the Eagles.


Team news

Ten Hag will continue to be without Lisandro Martinez, Marcel Sabitzer and Donny van de Beek.

Marcus Rashford has been back in training, so he could feature for the Red Devils as he aims to be available for the final three games of the season.

Scott McTominay is also back in the squad after he made his return to action against Bournemouth on the weekend.

For Lampard, defender Benoit Badiashile is out for the rest of the season after suffering a hamstring injury.

Midfielders Mason Mount and N'Golo Kante are also doubts for the match as they continue to recover from recent knocks.

Defenders Reece James, Ben Chilwell and Marc Cucurella are also expected to miss the clash at Old Trafford.

Predicted starting XIs

Ten Hag could throw Rashford back into the starting line-up if he is fit enough to take up his spot on the left wing over Jadon Sancho.

The England international has been the club's talisman this season, with 16 goals in the Premier League.

While Chelsea could name an unchanged line-up to the one that lost to Man City at the Etihad Stadium.

Lampard's current injury list could hinder his options of changing up the team again.

Key battle

The key battle of the match will be between central-midfielder bosses Casemiro and Enzo Fernandez.

Both players will be in charge of breaking up the opposition's play and starting off counter-attacks.

Casemiro has been in great form for the Red Devils since his arrival from Real Madrid last summer, while Fernandez has also impressed since joining Chelsea in January from Benfica.

The two players have a similar playing-style, though Casemiro's experience could give him the edge in the battle between the two.
