Manchester United team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Chelsea

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Chelsea on February 17.

Manchester United will be looking to win in the Premier League for the first time since January 11 when they travel to Chelsea for their next top-flight fixture on February 17.

The Red Devils have only won one of their last five in the league, losing two of their last three in the process.

Bruno Fernandes made his debut in Saturday's clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers but could not inspire his new side to a win as the points were shared in a goalless draw.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side now have more than two weeks off ahead of their next league fixture against a Chelsea side that sit fourth, six points above them in the Premier League table.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Frank Lampard's side.
