Manchester United news: Early team update ahead of Chelsea clash

Manchester United will jet back to England on Friday to finalize preparations for their English Premier League clash against Chelsea on Monday night. 

The Red Devils have been on a one-week warm-weather camp in Spain as the league took a winter-break to give players some time off due to busy schedules. 

Team news

New signing Odion Ighalo did not travel with the team to Spain due to reasons out of the club's control and was also banned from the club's training ground over coronavirus fears.

He is however expected to travel with the team to London for the clash and might get the chance to make his debut. 

Bruno Fernandes, the other January arrival, has been training with the rest of the squad in Spain and is also expected to start against the Blues. 

Axel Tuanzebe, Tim Fosu-Mensah, and Scott McTominay have been stepping up their return to fitness but the game against Frank Lampard's side may come too soon for them. 

Paul Pogba's road to recovery is positive after he posted a photo while in training without the protective boot.

Nemanja Matic is back following his suspension and will be in contention to start against his former side. 

This will be the third meeting between the two sides this season, with Ole Gunnar's men coming out on top in the past two occasions. 

They first won 4-0 in the opening match of the season at Old Trafford, before a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge in the League Cup quarterfinals. 

Six points separate the two sides in the standings, underlining the importance of the match in the race for a top-four finish.
