#2 Will both Lukaku and Rashford start for United?

Both Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford should ideally start for United, as they have a knack of frequently venturing into the opposition penalty box. Chelsea have the error-prone David Luiz as one of their central defenders. As such, the Blues could struggle to stop United’s forwards from scoring.

Lukaku’s physical presence might make things difficult for the Chelsea defenders during the set-pieces. The burly striker has scored 15 goals this season, and would look to increase his tally against Chelsea.

Moreover, Rashford would be a constant menace with his opportunistic forays into the final third. Both Rashford and Llukaku should be able to trouble the likes of Luiz, Antonio Rudiger and Cezar Azpilicueta, as United would be hungry for goals on Sunday.

United might also think of playing Alexis Sanchez because of his speed, but he would be a lesser threat from set-pieces than Lukaku and Rashford. It would be interesting to see the attacking combination Solskjaer opts for in the crucial match.
