Manchester United duo doubts for Chelsea, Michael Carrick coy on Rangnick talk


Manchester United duo doubts for Chelsea, Michael Carrick coy on Rangnick talk

Chelsea vs Manchester United

Manchester United are set for perhaps one of their toughest clashes of the season this weekend.

The Red Devils face a trip to west London for a meeting with current Premier League table-toppers, Chelsea.

Thomas Tuchel’s side are the top scorers in the Premier League and have the best defensive record in the division.

Man United, on the other hand, have been leaking goals for fun this term and have been awful against the bigger sides.

United, of course, got smashed 5-0 by Liverpool whilst also being completely dominated by Manchester City in a tie that could have easily ended with a much bigger scoreline than the 2-0 it was.

Michael Carrick speaks on Rangnick & confirms key duo are doubts for Chelsea

The man tasked with avoiding a 3rd straight hammering from sides that were supposed to be Man United’s title rivals this season is Michael Carrick.

Carrick is the current caretaker manager, though Ralf Rangnick is widely expected to become the interim boss very soon.

So, it was not surprising to see Carrick asked about this in his pre-Chelsea press conference on Friday. However, the former midfielder gave little away when quizzed on this:

“There’s a lot of different styles and there’s a good group of players here. Whoever comes in and whatever is implemented I’m sure they can adapt, there’s some real good talent within the squad, sure they’ll look forward to what’s ahead.”

Carrick added:

“My pure focus is on preparing the team as best as I can.

“It’s a huge responsibility that I have at the moment and I’ve given it everything. Anything after Sunday is not in my thoughts at the moment.”

Elsewhere, Carrick confirmed that both Luke Shaw and Fred are doubts for Sunday’s game:
