Manchester United vs Chelsea (Live Updates) : Solskjaer, Lampard test might at Old Trafford

Club legends Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Frank Lampard will be keen to show they are up to the task when they lead out their teams in the the Premier League Super Sunday clash at Old Trafford.

The Red Devils won all six of their summer outings – including triumphs over both Milan clubs and Champions League runners-up Tottenham – and so come into the new season in far better form than they ended the old one.

Competitive action is a whole different story, though, and Solskjaer’s big rebuild could have perhaps done with an easier start on paper.

For Chelsea, they will certainly be looking to carry their form over from last summer having lost just one of their final 13 games across all competitions in 2018-19. And on the whole they have managed to do that in pre-season with four wins from seven games – including a particularly notable one over Barcelona
