Chelsea vs Manchester United

Stamford Bridge

19 January 2014

16:00 GMT

Manchester United’s visit to Stamford Bridge to play Chelsea rekindles memories of numerous feisty contests over the years when both teams were fighting for the title. United seemingly appear out of the title race this season after falling 11 points behind Arsenal, but this fixture has lost none of its excitement (at least in the pre-match build up).

A win for Chelsea will represent Mourinho’s 100th in the Premier League. Despite United’s recent form, three points from this encounter is easier said than done. United have been poor at home, but their away form has been decent with just one defeat in the last five.

Team News:

Branislav Ivanovic and Marco van Ginkel have been ruled out, but Frank Lampard returns to the team. Chelsea have no major injury worries apart from it.

United are going through an injury crisis at the moment with several stars ruled out of this encounter.

Robin Van Persie and Wayne Rooney are the pick of the bunch. Nani, Young, Fellaini, and Fabio da Silva also miss the match as well.

Predicted Line-ups:

Chelsea (4-2-3-1): Cech; Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry, Cole; Lampard, Ramires; Willian, Oscar, Hazard; Torres

Manchester United (4-4-1-1): De Gea; Smalling, Vidic, Evans, Evra; Cleverley, Carrick; Valencia, Welbeck, Januzaj, Hernandez

Prediction:

Chelsea have been ruthlessly efficient in defence since the 3-2 defeat against Stoke City and it is expected to continue on Sunday as well. After having drawn the reverse fixture at Old Trafford 0-0, Mourinho will see this as the perfect opportunity (considering United’s injury crisis) to get one over David Moyes.

Chelsea 2-0 Manchester United

  22. Shey nah bcos of d rubbish united dey play diz nah dat giv u d opportunity 4 writting man utd off…no p lets go and watch God knw d best

  23. That is a horrible line up for United.
    One. Januzaj ain’t good enough for the AMC link role at the moment.
    Two. Ashley young just come back from injury. Really ?
    Three. Look at the bench, No wingers? Wheres Zaha? Why is Cleverley on the bench? He ain’t a match winner.
    Four. Kagawa. Best link player probably just as good as Rooney if given the chance. Moyes sticks him on bench and probably won’t use him or will stick him on the left.

    This line up does n’t inspire anything to me.

  24. Am man utd fan but i wish da best team all da best

  25. first sey-up man u. Course am thinking this game will be the best man u in this season. I wish it MAN U 5 CHL 0 like our last champion league. Every MAN U fans sey.. Amen.
