Fellow forward Romelu Lukaku is not in such hot form in front of goal, though, having now failed to find the back of the net in his last seven outings for United.

Fred is pushing for a start in midfield, but Juan Mata’s display at Stamford Bridge could mean that he gets the nod alongside Nemanja Matic and former Juve man Paul Pogbaonce again.
Juventus will be able to welcome Ronaldo back into the starting lineup, with the Portuguese talisman returning to a club where he scored 118 goals in 292 appearances.
The visitors could be without former Liverpool midfielder Emre Can, who may need surgery for a thyroid problem. Allegri rested Giorgio Chiellini and Dybala for the weekend draw with Genoa, and both could be in line to return for this match.
