The Premier League season continues this weekend, and it promises to be an exciting, impactful, and entertaining experience for everyone involved. With Chelsea taking on Manchester United on Sunday at Stamford Bridge, the most important game of the week will take place at the stadium.
The Blues are currently in first place in the English Premier League table with 29 points after 12 games, while the Red Devils are in eighth place with 17 points after 12 games, respectively.
We'd like to take a look at five players who have been ruled out of the big game for a variety of reasons ahead of the big game on Sunday.
Manchester United's Paul Pogba
The Manchester United midfielder sustained a thigh injury while playing for his country during the November international break, and he has been ruled out for 8 to 10 weeks as a result.
With Paul Pogba ruled out of tomorrow's match against Chelsea, the Frenchman could make his comeback sometime in December.
His hamstring injury, sustained during a training session ahead of the Newcastle United match, has sidelined him for the remainder of this season and has kept him out of the international break in November.
Thomas Tuchel, on the other hand, confirms that he will miss tomorrow's game against the Red Devils, but that he is not far from being fully fit.
Because of an anterior cruciate ligament injury, the England international left-back will be out for at least six weeks, according to the latest reports.
Ben Chilwell could have played his final game of the season during the Champions League match against Juventus, and he will not be available for selection for tomorrow's match against Borussia Dortmund.
Due to the two yellow cards he received during Manchester United's 4-1 loss to Watford, the Red Devils captain will miss Sunday's premier league match against Chelsea.
Harry Maguire will be available for selection for the remainder of the season because he will have completed his one-game suspension.
During the first half of Chelsea's 4-0 thrashing of Juventus on Tuesday night, the Frenchman was replaced by Diego Costa.
In spite of the significant progress made in N'golo Kante's recovery, Thomas Tuchel stated that he would be out for a few days, effectively ruling him out of the Manchester United match on Sunday.
