Man Utd Provisional Squad Vs Chelsea Revealed, Nigerian Duo Omitted Despite InjuriesNigerian duo Tosin Kehinde and Matthew Olosunde will not make their first-team debuts for Manchester United in the eagerly anticipated clash against Chelsea at Old Trafford this afternoon.

Fresh reports out of England confirm that the two 19-year-olds have not been named to United's provisional roster for the match day 28 fixture.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will not be able to call on injured midfielders Ander Herrera and Marouane Fellaini while the future of Paul Pogba is up in the air after falling out with the Portuguese, so it was thought that Kehinde would make the squad list especially as he has trained with the first team in recent weeks.

Despite defensive-minded stars Daley Blind, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo not in contention for the game against the Blues and Eric Bailly lacking match fitness, Olosunde has not been summoned by Mourinho.

Tosin Kehinde has appeared in 12 games for United's reserve team this season, while Olosunde has ten games under his belt.

Mourinho has opted to include Scott McTominay in the squad ahead of the Lagos-born midfielder, the Englishman has played four games for the U23s in the Premier League 2 in the current season.
