FRANK LAMPARD’s reign as Chelsea manager begins with a huge visit to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.
The Blues return fresh from a pre-season in which they secured impressive wins against Barcelona and RB Leipzig, but an air of uncertainty still awaits the new boss at Stamford Bridge due to the club’s two-window transfer ban.
In the opposite dugout to Lampard, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer embarks on his first full season at the helm in the red half of Manchester after replacing former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho at United in late 2018.
What time does Man Utd vs Chelsea kick off?
This Premier League clash will take place on Sunday, August 11.

What is the team news?
Eric Bailly is United’s only long term absentee and continues to recover from a back injury, and Alexis Sanchez will be given another month before selection after returning late from the Copa America.
Midfielder Paul Pogba did not feature in the final pre-season game but should be fit enough to start.
Meanwhile, Chelsea will be without Willian who was also at the Copa America.
Apart from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Antonio Rudiger – who are all braced for lengthy spells on the sidelines – Frank Lampard has a full squad at his disposal for his first game at the helm.
