Jadon Sancho and Harry Maguire have both been ruled out of the Premier League clash between Manchester United and Chelsea on Thursday. Both Maguire and Sancho won’t be available for Manchester United when they play hosts to Chelsea in a rescheduled league game. The game was brought forward due to the FA Cup final commitment on the part of outgoing European champions Chelsea.The Blues made the FA Cup final after beating London rivals Crystal Palace 2-0 earlier this month thanks to the second half goals from the England international duo of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount and will face Merseyside giants Liverpool in the bid to win a first FA Cup title since the 2018 edition.
According to Rangnick, Maguire will miss the Chelsea game due to a knee injury, while tonsillitis is the reason for the potential absence of Sancho for the game.
Rangnick and his Manchester United players have lost their last two games in the Premier League and only an home win over Chelsea would improve their slim chance of finishing in fourth spot which will guarantee Champions League football in the new season.
