Alonso and Werner benched as injured Cavani misses out |

Two more teams get their Gameweek 26 double-headers underway this afternoon at Stamford Bridge.

Kick-off in the clash between Chelsea and Manchester United is at 16:30 GMT.

All eyes are on Bruno Fernandes from a Fantasy perspective, with his ownership in excess of 60% overall and sitting at 96.8% in the top 10k.

Over 14% of the leading 10,000 managers have made Fernandes their captain in Double Gameweek 26.

Thomas Tuchel continues to tinker with his starting XI, making five alterations from Gameweek 25.

Ben Chilwell and Callum Hudson-Odoi replace Marcos Alonso and Reece James at wing-back, with Andreas Christensen in for Kurt Zouma at centre-half.

There are changes further forward, too, with Timo Werner benched and Hakim Ziyech starting his first match since Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Barnsley in the FA Cup.

Olivier Giroud is also preferred to Tammy Abraham as the spearhead of the hosts’ attack.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer make two changes to the Manchester United side that beat Newcastle United last weekend.

Scott McTominay and Mason Greenwood are recalled, with Nemanja Matic and Anthony Martial benched.

McTominay and Donny van de Beek had been injury doubts for this weekend, with the Dutchman also recovering to make the bench.

Edinson Cavani isn’t fit to feature, however.

Chelsea XI: Mendy, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Rudiger, Hudson-Odoi, Kante, Kovacic, Chilwell, Ziyech, Mount, Giroud.

Man Utd XI: de Gea, Wan-Bissaka, Lindelof, Maguire, Shaw, McTominay, Fred, Greenwood, Fernandes, James, Rashford.
