It's billed as one of the games of the season and what a game we could have in prospect.​


Chelsea will have to do without the services of captain, John Terry
for the visit of the champions, while Didier Drogba could
see a return to action after completing a successful night with the Chelsea
reserves a few nights ago.

United will be without Nemanja Vidic (Suspended), Michael Carrick
(Injured), although the Champions could see the return of winger,
Cristiano Ronaldo
on Sunday lunchtime.


Chelsea have outscored United considerably so far this season netting 9 times
against United's 4, also conceading fewer then the Red Devils with only 2 against
them to United's 5. (ALL competitions)

Chelsea will be looking to maintain their incredible home record on Sunday but
revenge will be on the cards as United were left licking their wounds after a
bruising encounter with the Londeners at the bridge last time out.

Last seasons meetings;
Manchester United 2-0 Chelsea (Old Trafford, Premier League)
Chelsea 2-1 Manchester United (Stamford Bridge, Premier League)
Manchester United (6)1-1(5) Chelsea (Luzhniki Stadium, Champions League Final)

The Irish Independant (Irish Newspaper) are suggesting that Chelsea will play
4/5/1 with a view to 4/3/3 and that United will play 4/3/3 with Ronaldo, Berbatov
and Tevez up front leaving Rooney on the bench...

Very good, but the work rate dropped.

Berbatov is showing us why we signed him. Defence is brilliant and a special note
on Evans who has been superb!

Hargreaves is doing well, Scholsey has to be careful, we don't need a stupid red
card now.

Loosing VDS is a bad blow but what about that save by PIG, despite it being
offside, quality.

I've got a feeling we'll see Anderson soon, because we need a bit more effort in
the middle of the field. We're doing well and oh how I wish it was full time
now! :rolleyes:

Riley blows up on absolutly everything, albeit he's giving us a fair amount
of "good" decisions!

Cole's chance was a disgrace, he clearly handled the ball to control it and I
thought it was in. A very very big let off and we have to be able to cope with their

We CAN win this!

Rooney cost us the game giving away a pointless free kick

Thats such a petty point mate!

Rooney was very good one picked up Kalou in the box, and thats why we conceded...

I'm fairly happy though, I would have taken this before the game started...

Ronaldo was a bismal though....dived....moaned, and just swaggered about...

^^^Don;t forget VDS's dogyness...:rolleyes:

Defence was great as said....I'm happy with it all....beat Fulham, and we're four
points behind so thats nowt at this stage!

The FA pulled a fast one on us with fixtures, but we came out smiling! :D...

As Rooney said on MUTV, we had to go to three of the toughest places in the
opening 4 games, Pompey, Liverpool and Chelsea so thats a great plus to take 4
points from that despite loosing 5.

Only thing that really annoys me now, is the opeing game TBH, but we're on the
right patch...;)
