Considering the injuries to Rooney at Man Ure, And Cesc at the arse, This is a huge chance for us, Huge. Three points are an absolute must. On days gone by, Old Trafford used to be a very happy hunting ground for us, not so in recent years but we are in good form, very good form.thumbsup.gif

Absolutely bricking this game already. Going to be tough even with Rooney out, and they are obviously going to look to exploit our full backs and get Nani/Valencia running at Paulo and Yuri. However, they'll be just as worried about Zhirkov and Malouda bombing past Neville. Its a shame that Ivanovic hasnt made it and its vital that Nico or Joe and Malouda get back to help.

However, JT and Alex should have an easier game tomorrow keeping Berbatov quiet rather than Rooney and with the back four + Mikel, i'm confident of keeping them out. Had this game been last season, and we'd seen Tevez, Ronaldo and Rooney all out; we'd be supremely confident.

Take the game to them Chels.

Cech

Ferreira Terry Alex Zhirkov

Ballack Mikel Lampard

Anelka/J.Cole Drogba Malouda

Im really hoping for a team that looks like this

Cech

Ferreira , Alex , Terry , Zhirkov

Deco , Mikel

Joe Cole , Lampard , Malouda

Drogba

Dont you think Deco would get muscled out vs Carrick and Fletcher? Think Ballack's physical presence will see him start, although I wouldn't mind Deco starting ahead of Joe/Anelka.

Just listened to Jason Cundy making a tool out of Lou Macari who bumbled his way through a head-to-head discussion on the game. Cundy was basically laughing at him throughout after his ludicrous claims of Chelsea havent the players to handle the big games and that they hound the ref at every opportunity.

The last claim made me laugh considering its straight out of the Manure how to influence the ref handbook.

Just listening to their arrogant supporters on other forums make me want this more than anything in the past. I hope we fucking tank them. :D

deco would be much more of an impact in the game than ballack and i think fletcher will be sticking with lampard throughout the game but nobody can stick with lampard for a full game. most of are chances will probably be through malouda against gary nevile.

belletti

Spot on mate, reckon Balley's got a good chance of starting as a second holding midfielder, giving Frank the freedom to move forwards. United will probably play with one striker and a five-man midfield to stop Lampard bombing forward to support Flo and DD11.

Owen Hargreaves could return to the Manchester United bench after 19 months out with a knee injury, while John O'Shea could also return.

Wayne Rooney, injured in midweek, will be replaced by Dimitar Berbatov.

Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti will recall Didier Drogba, who has recovered from a knock that prevented him from training earlier this week.

Drogba's return could mean Joe Cole drops to the bench, with Nicolas Anelka taking up a deeper role.

Man Utd

Injured: Anderson (knee), Brown & Welbeck (both metatarsal), Owen (hamstring), Rooney (ankle)

Chelsea

Injured: Bosingwa, Essien & Ivanovic (all knee), Carvalho & A Cole (both ankle)

Guys, do you think ancelotti would start the game with drogba or keep him on the bench ?

i dont know but somehow we looked like a much more formidable team with lots of opportunities to score when drogba wasnt playing.

and that goes for the games during the African nations cup too.

guys drogba should start but it wouldn't be a disaster for me if he didn't and anelka did ...... but the real disaster will be if they both started then carlo will just prove he is sooo stupid ..... everyone including my grandmother knows we play better with 2 real wingers ....!!!!!

so please everyone putting them both in his start up line .... stop it !!!!

Deco has played so well in the last couple of games in that deep role and we need a player in there that can keep the team ticking over and add a little bit of creativity from the middle. Also I think Deco has a bit more pace about him than Ballack and thats something our midfield notoriously lacks. Personally I wouldnt fancy Ballack up against the younger, more energetic Man Utd midfield.

Drogba never shows up against Man Utd anyway and we seem to play so freely without him for some reason. tbh the team that played against Villa would feel a bit hard done by for the one(s) who miss out. We've scored 7 twice wthout Drogba. I know for a fact that Dids will have a mare tomorrow.

And btw Man Utd without Rooney, played 6 won 6

Chelsea without Drogba over Xmas, Played 5 won 5

Strange

last chance to stamp our mark on this years title race,a win @ sold trafford & its game on a draw will make it difficult,& a defeat & i think its time for a clearout & time for some young blood.

I dont think they would dare in a game as big as this. Even against a shit team, he wouldn't be ready to start. No doubt he'll come on if they are beating us 1-0 with 20 mins to go...

I think this game will be about two great coaches and their masterplans.

Ancelotti failed against Mourinho so that's his chance to make up for it.
