Chelsea vs. Manchester United live score, updates, highlights from Premier League

Few teams have successfully found a way to stop European champion and Premier League leader Chelsea this year. That’s the task facing an undermanned Manchester United team heading to Stamford Bridge under an interim manager and with only one win in its last seven league matches.

The Red Devils, in 10th place and 12 points behind Chelsea, will attempt the feat without several starters with the likes of Paul Pogba, Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane unavailable. And in late lineup news, Cristiano Ronaldo will start on the bench. Man United will be happy to come away from London with a draw as it attempts to work its way back up the table and fight for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification.

Meanwhile, Chelsea is riding high on the heels of a 4-0 Champions League win against Juventus in midweek and with star striker Romelu Lukaku back available off the bench. Chelsea is deep, and Timo Werner will get the start as the center forward; American attacker Christian Pulisic will be available off the bench.
