Chelsea vs. Manchester United: Lineups and gamethread

Michael Steele

Chelsea host Manchester United with a chance to extend their lead at the top of the table to 4 points.

There's not a whole lot to be said about this game. It's Chelsea, and it's Manchester United. Chelsea currently sit four points clear of the traditional powerhouse, so three points at home today would open up a significant amount of breathing room at this early point in the season.

Chelsea had a poor showing mid-week, and I'm hoping it was due in large part to them looking ahead to this game. United also looked a bit off mid-week, but looking at the lineup they used there is little doubt as to why. Roberto Di Matteo and Alex Ferguson will be sending out the following lineups for Sunday's clash in London:

Chelsea lineup: Petr Cech, Branislav Ivanovic, Gary Cahill, David Luiz, Ashley Cole, Ramires, Mikel, Juan Mata, Oscar, Eden Hazard; Fernando Torres

Chelsea bench: Ross Turnbull, Cesar Azpilicueta, Ryan Bertrand, Oriol Romeu, Marko Marin, Victor Moses, Daniel Sturridge

Manchester United lineup: David De Gea, Rafael, Rio Ferdinand, Johny Evans, Patrice Evra, Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Ashley Young, Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie

Manchester United bench: Anders Lindegaard, Anderson, Ryan Giggs, Javier Hernandez, Nani, Danny Welbeck, Paul Scholes

As always, please don't link to illegal streams and keep comments appropriate. Win, lose or draw, Chelsea will still be top of the table at the end of the day.
