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

Sports Mole rounds up Manchester United's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday night's EFL Cup tie with Chelsea.

Manchester United make the trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the EFL Cup fourth round on Wednesday night having registered back-to-back wins on their travels.

Just three days after seeing off Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League, United recorded a deserved 3-1 victory over Norwich City in the Premier League.

While Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will make numerous changes to his side, the Norwegian will view this competition as an opportunity to hand more experience to the younger members of his squad, as well as providing game time for players who have recently recovered from fitness issues

Here, Sports Mole rounds up United's injury and suspension news ahead of the showdown in West London.
