"Today, we play against the champions.  We don't play against a team that is 11 points away from the leaders, we play versus Manchester United."

"...we are playing well, in the process of a big evolution [...] But we need to keep going, always chasing improvement, both individually and as a team."

-Jose Mourinho; source: Matchday Programme Note (Man United - 19/01/14)

A couple surprises in either lineup, with Ivanovic and Evra making unexpected appearances in the first team lineup.  On paper, this is a no contest.  But a contest it will be nonetheless.  Hang on to your hats!
