Chelsea vs Man United: Carrick provides Red Devil's team news ahead of Sunday's clash

Manchester United's Michael Carrick has confirmed that the club has "two or three little concerns" ahead of Sunday's Premier League match against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Red Devils will be without Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane due to injury, while Mason Greenwood is anticipated to miss out after testing positive for coronavirus recently.

Carrick added during Friday's news conference that Luke Shaw is still a doubt after sustaining a head injury against Watford last weekend, and that Fred is trying to recover from an ankle injury in time to play.

Edinson Cavani has been out with a tendon problem recently and could be out again for the 20-time English champions, who are reportedly close to appointing Ralf Rangnick as their new interim manager.

"We got two or three little issues. It is never ideal. One or two we are waiting on and Luke took a bang on the head a few weeks ago and took a bang against Watford. We'll make a call on him," Carrick told reporters.

"Fred twisted his ankle, played a big part, we will have to see how that settles down. One or two others."

Man United will also be without club captain Harry Maguire on Sunday due to suspension, as the center-back was sent off in last weekend's 4-1 loss to Watford.
