Marcus Rashford and N'Golo Kante both make the cut.

With Manchester United and Chelsea set to lock horns and get their Premier League campaigns under way, we are faced with two giants of English football very much in periods of transition.

The Red Devils are looking to rediscover both their identity and the good times under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while Chelsea are also pinning their hopes on a returning club legend achieving great things.

With a host of talent on offer, including some big money signings set for debuts, Sportsmail compiles the best United and Chelsea XI on the eve of the big clash...

Right back - Aaron Wan-Bissaka

The big money summer signing has been impressive for United in pre-season, and needs to hit the ground running in this one.

Still yet to earn a senior England cap, Wan-Bissaka cost United a pricey £50m and will be under the spotlight from the first whistle.

Centre-back - Harry Maguire

The world's most expensive defender was always going to feature, and today's test could be a baptism of fire.

Maguire proved his ability at Leicester, and within Gareth Southgate's back three with England, but the pressure at United will be cranked up from the word go.
After desperately needing to overhaul the defence, Solskjaer placed all his eggs in Maguire's basket. Now it's time to repay that faith.
