It’s been a strange season so far for both Manchester United and Chelsea.
Both of them need the three points desperately, the Red Devils currently sit 6th in the Premier League table and are on a run of three straight league defeats in a row. The Blues are unbelievably 15th in the table and need to try and put some daylight between themselves and the relegation zone. Manchester united are 6/4 for the win, with Chelsea at 9/5 and the draw at 21/10.
Under pressure United boss Louis van Gaal must decide whether to start Captain Wayne Rooney against Chelsea. The England striker started on the bench for United’s 2-0 defeat to Stoke at the Britannia stadium on Boxing Day. Schweinsteiger returns from suspension and defender Matteo Darmian has a chance of making his return after a hamstring injury.
Chelsea will be without star striker Diego Costa for this game, he picked up his 5th booking of the season in the 2-2 draw against Watford, a game in which Costa scored twice and looked really impressive. So that’s a big blow for Chelsea in this game.
