Chelsea are set to face Manchester United at home on Sunday, and manager Guus Hiddink spoke about our players' availability ahead of the match. According to the manager, strikers Radamel Falcao and Loïc Rémy will certainly miss the game due to injury.

Another player that won't be available to play is Alexandre Pato, who's still getting back into proper fitness via a special training programme as he hasn't seen the pitch since November last year.
Guus reports Pato is on a special 'pre-season' training programme and will not be involved for a few games. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) 5. Februar 2016
Meanwhile, attacking midfielder Pedro might return to the line-up after missing the Watford game as he recovers from a groin injury.
Guus says Pedro has missed some training but he should be okay. Remy should return next week. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) 5. Februar 2016
Guus says he will see how Pedro reacts to intensive training today and tomorrow. He has a slight groin problem. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) 5. Februar 2016
Pedro hasn't been great during his Chelsea spell so far, but a player returning to our squad is always good news regardless of form. May he find his scoring boots again, perhaps against the 'gazumped' United.
