Pre-match buzz

Chelsea's defense did it for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men as they were held goalless. Juan Mata and Marcus Rashford's attempts were thwarted by the Blues new gloveman, Edouard Mendy and the Red Devils will be hoping to get the ball at the back of the net against Leipzig. This will also be Edinson Cavani's second outing for the side and the 33-year-old will be keen on making a mark for his new side. United will miss the services of Jesse Lingard, Phil Jones and Eric Bailly to injuries.

Leipzig comes in with some injury concerns of their own. Midfielder Tyler Adams, defender Marcel Halstenberg, right-back Lukas Klostermann, Austria international Konrad Laimer, and young German forward Fabrice Hartmann are all on the injury roster. Both sides haven't faced each other in a competitive fixture and the sides will be keen on registering another win to top the table. United will further be bolstered by the return of Anthony Martial as he returns from his suspension.

Who will win?

United are still the predicted winners and will be keen on extending the momentum they have gained since beating Newcastle. However, the German side is known for playing precision football and the fact they were semi-finalists of the previous edition of the Champions League makes this a game the English side cannot take lightly. Quite simple, a mouth-watering clash is on the cards.
