Chelsea Team News: Injuries, suspensions and line-up vs Man Utd – football news

Undefeated Chelsea are involved in a blockbuster match to restart the Premier League season after the international break as Manchester United visit Stamford Bridge.

United are currently trailing behind the rest of the top six as they sit seven points behind Manchester City, Chelsea and Liverpool, who occupy the top three places in the table.

Many pundits believe that Alexis Sanchez’s last minute winner against Newcastle before the international break helped save the job of manager Jose Mourinho, meaning he remains in charge for a return to his old stomping ground.

Maurizio Sarri could be set to heap more doubt on Mourinho’s long term future at Old Trafford, as the Blues go into the match as heavy favourites.


Chelsea Injuries


Chelsea have suffered two main injury concerns over the international break after going into their last league game with a clean bill of health.

Antonio Rudiger suffered a groin injury at the end of Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton, with the increasingly influential defender now in a race to be fit in time for Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off.

Ethan Amapdu, meanwhile, may only be a bit part player for Chelsea, but he pulled out of the Wales squad after their recent 4-1 defeat to Spain left him with a knee problem.

Chelsea Suspensions


Neither Chelsea nor Manchester United have any players out with suspensions ahead of Saturday’s clash, while there are no players in danger of bans should they pick up yellow cards.


Chelsea Potential Starting Line-Up


Sarri faces another busy period handling his squad who will be battling for major honours on all fronts. The Manchester United game will be a big priority for Chelsea, with BATE Borisov to come in the Europa League on Thursday.

Willian is the only player at the club to have started in each of the last six games though Pedro remains a potential starter.

Chelsea have stuck religiously to a 4-3-3 formation this season and have operated with tactical consistancy. Alvaro Morata has scored in each of his last two games which might give Sarri some food for thought after opting to play Olivier Giroud ahead of the £70m striker in recent weeks.

Ross Barkley may well retain his place ahead of Mateo Kovacic but the rest of the line up looks set to be quite predictable, especially in comparison to that of United.

Man Utd Team News


Mourinho has suffered the blow of having both Nemanja Matic and Luke Shaw added to the list of injury concerns ahead of their trip to west London, with the pair having both pulled out of their respective international squads since the Newcastle clash.

Scott McTominay has been a regular in recent weeks and he is also battling for fitness ahead of the Saturday afternoon kick off while Ander Herrera and Jesse Lingard are expected to remain on the sidelines.

Marcos Rojo is long term absentee with a knee problem.


TV channel & kick-off time


The match at Stamford Bridge kicks off at 12:30pm BST on Saturday, with live coverage available in the UK on Sky Sports Premier League from 11:30am and Sky Sports Main Event from midday. In the U.S. the game will be shown on NBCSN at 7:30am ET.

FIFA 19 Premier League bargains: Best Ultimate Team cheap buys under 5,000 coins – football news

The ridiculous amount of money in the Premier League means every club in the league can attract big names signings, every squad has some quality.

Which in turn is good and bad news for FIFA 19 Ultimate Team fans. The popularity drives up the cost of Premier League players in the FUT market, meaning any player with good stats will be forced to an outrageous price. At the same time though, with how competitive the league is there are plenty of excellent players, even outside of the top six clubs.

Whether you’re looking to create a Premier League team or you’re already planning your starter squad for when you get FIFA for Christmas, we have you covered. Here are the top five FUT bargains in the Premier League, all of whom you can pick up for under 5,000 coins each.


Kasper Schmeichel – 84


Budget goalkeepers don’t get much better than this, with an overall of 84 but a price of just 2,500 coins, Kasper Schmeichel is a fantastic pick up.

The undoubted highlight of this card is 88 reflexes which in-game makes Schmeichel feel much better than most goalkeepers. Whether it’s stopping longshots or in one on one scenarios, the Dane will pull out sensational saves which could be the difference between a win or loss.

His main weakness is handling with a rating of only 77 but rebound goals don’t appear to be as common in FIFA 19 so it shouldn’t be an issue. The rest of the Leicester City man’s stats are solid too with 83 diving, 80 positioning and 82 kicking.


Antonio Rudiger – 81


HD Rudiger

While Chelsea this season have an uncharacteristic focus on attacking, they still have some excellent defenders at the club. Antonio Rudiger has become a regular starter at the London club and will soon do the same for your FUT squad.

The 81-rated defender will only cost you around 2,400 coins but will be worth every penny. Standing at 6’3” the German is an imposing presence and will cause any attacker a hard time with 90 aggression and 80 strength. His 73 pace is pretty good for a centre-back, meaning he can get close to strikers before making good use of his 81 sliding tackle and 84 standing tackle stats.

And for those who like to play it out from the back, his 75 short passing should be more than good enough to start your transition into attack.


Jean Michael Seri – 82


What a wonderful card this is and somehow only costs around 1,100 coins, probably because people only look at his 76 pace.

Jean Michael Seri is an incredibly talented footballer and is a pleasure to use in FIFA 19. On the surface, this card doesn’t look like anything special with 81 dribbling, 71 shooting, 73 defending, 82 passing and 73 physicality. But once you see some his in-game stats, you’ll understand.

Seri can unlock any defence with a lovely combination of 84 vision and 86 short passing while his 84 long passing can also create problems. His 88 balance, 84 ball control and 81 agility make him incredibly difficult to tackle too. Almost all of his remaining stats are in the yellow and he has a four-star weak-foot, making him a very balanced midfielder. With excellent passing and ball retention, Seri will pull the strings in most matches.


Gerard Deulofeu – 81


Gerard Deulofeu, Watford

Another ridiculously cheap card, you can find Gerard Deulofeu for as cheap as 850 coins. The Watford winger is perfect a budget squad.

For the sweatier players out there, his 90 pace is more than enough to create danger, especially with his excellent dribbling. The Spaniard has 86 in the stat with in-game 94 agility, 88 dribbling and 86 ball control. Pair that with his four-star skills and weak-foot you have an effective player in any attacking scenario.

Deulofeu’s passing and shooting are both fairly average but his 84 curve means you can fully abuse finesse shots which are currently overtuned in the game.

Wilfried Zaha – 82


And finally, if you’re looking for a quick and skillful striker without breaking the bank, you have to opt for Wilfried Zaha. The Crystal Palace star is the classic striker you want in FUT and currently you can find him for around 4,000 coins.

With 91 pace, 87 dribbling and five-star skills you’re almost guaranteed to create opportunities with this man leading the line. His shooting isn’t amazing but 77 finishing is more than good enough considering the easy opportunities Zaha can make for himself.

The main issue is the fact that he’s a CF so for better chemistry you might have to shell out some extra coins for a position-change card.
