Rashford, Sabitzer, Martinez – Manchester United injury news and return dates ahead of Chelsea

Man United could seal qualification for next season’s Champions League qualification if they pick up a point against Chelsea in the Premier League clash

Manchester United could seal their place back in the Champions League for next season should they pick up at least a point against Chelsea later this week.

United sit fourth in the Premier League table as things stand, level on points with Newcastle United, and are well placed for being back in Europe’s top club competition for the 2023/24 campaign. The 1-0 victory over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium has placed them three points clear of fifth-placed Liverpool.
After Jurgen Klopp’s outfit could only draw at Anfield against Aston Villa, United extended their advantage over their bitter rivals. United are in a promising position and have their destiny firmly in their hands with a game in hand.
