Uruguay striker Cavani has yet to feature since his deadline day move, having also been forced to quarantine for a fortnight following his free transfer.

What have we said about the clubs?
What are the odds?
- Manchester United 6/4
- Chelsea 7/4
- Draw 13/5
What’s our prediction?
The result of this match greatly depends on which Chelsea defence shows up. The one that leaked three goals against Southampton or the one that kept a clean sheet against Sevilla. Frank Lampard’s side had leaked 63 goals in 43 matches before Tuesday’s shut-out – the worst return of any Blues boss.
United’s back line is hardly watertight, but did manage to limit a PSG side containing Neymar and Kylian Mbappe to one goal, so if recent results are anything to go by it will either be a goalfest or a stalemate.
Predicted score: Manchester United 3 Chelsea 2
