In recent times this fixture would have been nailed on as an early Premier League title decider. However, a change in fortunes and circumstance for Manchester United and Chelsea means fans and management of both clubs will have slightly more modest hopes and ambitions this season, with Champions League qualification likely to be seen as a great achievement. See how each starts out today with a Man Utd vs Chelsea live stream – no matter where on Earth you are.
Chelsea are ushering in a fresh new era as rookie boss and club legend Frank Lampard takes the helm, while United go into the season after a decidedly mixed transfer window.
Manchester United vs Chelsea live stream – where and when
Today’s game takes place at Old Trafford in Manchester , with kick-off at 4.30pm BST in the UK, which is 11.30am ET, 8.30am PT in the US, and 1.30am AEST on Monday morning for those looking to tune in from Down Under.
Hamstrung by a transfer ban, much of the focus today will be on what sort of team Lampard has cooked up out of last year’s leftovers and a raft of eager youngsters that must now make the quick transition from unwanted loan stock to fully-fledged Chelsea first-team contenders.
Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjae also looks to set to be reliant on younger members of the playing staff making their mark on the first team as part of the Norweigan’s “long rebuild”. The addition of Harry Maguire will add some presence and character to United’s back line, as well as a major goal threat at set pieces. However, the loss of Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan on transfer deadline day without bringing in a suitable replacement now leaves the Red Devils’s looking decidedly light up front.
Paul Pogba has shaken off a back injury and looks set to start for United, but Alexis Sanchez continues to be rested following his exertions at the Copa America earlier in the summer. Chelsea, meanwhile, have been sweating on the fitness of key midfielder N’Golo Kante, who is a doubt with a knee injury
