Man Utd star Fred’s wife posts cute Instagram snap ahead of Chelsea match

Manchester United are travelling to west London to face Chelsea in the Carabao Cup fourth round – and midfielder Fred’s wife has posted a cute Instagram post beforehand.

Fred, 26, is hoping to kickstart Man Utd’s season after a poor start despite beating Chelsea 4-0 in their first Premier League game.

The Blues will be hoping to get revenge tonight at Stamford Bridge.

Brazilian Fred’s wedding was just before the season started as he tied the knot with Monique Salum.

Before the match tonight, United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has backed Fred and Andreas Pereira to bring energy and creativity to his team's midfield in the absence of the injured Paul Pogba.

France World Cup winner Pogba, who has missed eight of United's last 10 matches, is expected to remain on the sidelines until December due to an ankle problem.

Pereira has featured in the last seven Premier League matches and showed signs of building a fluid midfield partnership with fellow Brazilian Fred and Scott McTominay as United beat Norwich City 3-1 on Sunday.

"I think his energy and drive – the two Brazilians to be fair, Fred and Andreas – they are going to be important for us," Solskjaer told reporters.

"Fred will probably take Paul's position for a while now and that's been brilliant for us.

“But Andreas has grown in the last few games. His energy and running, chasing, he is a different sort of 10.

"There is no use talking about who is not going to be here for a long, long time… Paul's been brilliant and he is a creative midfielder that we need, but then it is up to the others to step up."

Chelsea face Man Utd at Stamford Bridge at 8.05pm.
