Chelsea Predicted XI: We predict Frank Lampard’s starting XI as the Blues travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United this afternoon.

Frank Lampard’s spent over £200million in the transfer window as they aim to compete at the top of the league once again and win trophies.

However, despite an influx of big signings, the Blues’ defensive frailties seem to remain as they have conceded nine goals in their opening five Premier League matches.

The latest setback came last time out when the West London side drew 3-3 against Southampton after being 2-0 and 3-2 in front.

Lampard will know that he will need to find a solution quick, especially with other top sides dropping points, giving real opportunities for so many teams.

But with the fixtures coming thick and fast at the start of this 2020/21 campaign, the Blues boss could be forced to shuffle his pack once again.

So which players will the ex-England international task with getting a positive result at Old Trafford?

Here we predict Lampard’s starting XI…

Goalkeeper: Kepa Arrizabalaga’s tough time continued last Saturday as he made a mess of Southampton’s second goal. So Lampard will be happy that summer signing Edouard Mendy has made an early comeback from a thigh injury and could make a surprise to start in goal.  The Shot-stopper performed vey well against Sevilla in the Champions League midweek.
