It's not a must win; it's not a can't lose ... but ...

Alex Livesey

"I promised Arsène Wenger after our game last week that he need not worry, I would pick a team to win."

-Sir Alex Ferguson, The Guardian


Manchester United starting lineup (4-3-3):
Anders Lindegaard | Patrice Evra, Nemanja Vidic, Jonny Evans, Rafael | Tom Cleverley, Anderson, Phil Jones | Ryan Giggs, Robin van Persie, Antonio Valencia

Substitutes from: David De Gea, Rio Ferdinand, Alexander Buttner, Paul Scholes, Shinji Kagawa, Javier Hernandez, Wayne Rooney

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1):
Petr Cech | Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Branislav Ivanovic, Cesar Azpilicueta | Frank Lampard, Ramires | Oscar, Juan Mata, Victor Moses | Demba Ba

Substitutes from: Ross Turnbull, Paulo Ferreira, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Nathan Ake, Yossi Benayoun, Fernando Torres


Eden Hazard, MIA. Noooooooooooo... Did look like he picked up a slight knock vs. FC Basel. If true, saving him for Spurs is the right move.

But it's a good thing Interim named all these defenders to the bench. Genius! If Chelsea need goals, they have the dynamic duo of Torres & Hobo to bring on. What could possibly go wrong?
