Attack: Sancho, Elanga, Rashford
The biggest call United’s manager could’ve made against Liverpool was to leave Cristiano Ronaldo out of the starting line-up. His decision to do so was one thing, but leaving him out for Anthony Elanga, rather than the returning Anthony Martial, made even more of a statement.
With uncertainty still surrounding the 37-year-old’s future, he may have to settle for a place on the bench again at Southampton. Elanga would’ve been expected to join Ronaldo hadn’t Ten Hag ruled Martial out of the trip through injury. But the Swedish youngster, Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford all delivered against Liverpool and could maintain their starting spots because of it.
Expected Chelsea XI in full: De Gea, Dalot, Varane, Martinez, Malacia, Casemiro, Fernandes, Eriksen, Sancho, Elanga, Rashford
