Confirmed Starting XI: Chelsea vs Manchester United – Romero starts

Manchester United continue their FA Cup campaign tonight, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer looks to bounce back from the defeat inflicted on us by Paris Saint-Germain.

A trip away to Chelsea is never easy and no doubt tonight will be no different. The game itself should be a close affair with goals galore if recent form is anything to go by.

The team news is in and somewhat surprisingly, Solskjaer is ringing the changes… The Baby Faced Assassin has seemingly chosen to rest David de Gea, thus handing minutes to Sergio Romero in the process.

Luke Shaw starts at left-back, while captain on the day, Ashley Young, plays on the right-hand side of the defence. Victor Lindelof plays as centre-back alongside Chris Smalling.

Nemanja Matic will play at the midfield’s base, with Ander Herrera and Paul Pogba just in front of him. We need a huge performance from the Frenchman if we’re to get a positive result.

Juan Mata returns to his old stomping ground, although I’m not quite sure where he’ll play positionally. Both Marcus Rashford and Romelu Lukaku start, perhaps in a two-man strike partnership?
