Although penalty woes took headlines after Manchester United beat Norwich on the weekend, Anthony Martial’s goal at the end of the game topped off a great performance by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.
With the Frenchman seemingly back to full fitness, fans are expecting the striker to start midweek when the Red Devils take on Chelsea in the Carabao Cup. Frank Lampard’s Chelsea have been in fine form recently, but that hasn’t stopped these United fans from making some bold predictions about the matchup.
Hopefully a Martial hat trick ??

Some fans are begging for Ole to make no changes to the lineup we saw against the Canaries. It seems that the combination of Marcus Rashford, Daniel James and Martial is the winning formula in some fan’s eyes.
Don’t make any changes in the line up against Chelsea

What do we think?
The game against Chelsea will be difficult, but after a convincing win against the Blues in the opening weekend of the Premier League, this Manchester United team have proven they have it in them. Should the likes of Martial, Rashford and James play as well as they did against Norwich, they could cause the Chelsea defenders some serious problems.
