Manchester United to turn start 29-year-old as the striker against Chelsea

Manchester United and Chelsea have always had a rivalry, particularly over the last decade since the London club became perennial title challengers. Tonight sees the two sides face off in the FA Cup quarter-final, with a place at Wembley in the semi-final at stake.

However, Jose Mourinho’s task has been made much harder. Last night, it emerged that a trio of strikers would miss the clash with injury, and also Zlatan Ibrahimovic is banned.

That led to questions about who was going to lead the line for Manchester United, and it looks as though The Express have given us our answer. They say that Jose Mourinho will turn to none other than Marouane Fellaini.

The tall Belgian has been in and out of the team this campaign, but it looks as though he’ll be the man who will spearhead our attack in arguably our most important game of the season.

First of all, this injury news simply couldn’t have happened at a worse time, and it does really pose a problem for the self-proclaimed Special One.

However, if Fellaini does start, he deserves our full backing. It’s going to be a tough, physical battle throughout, and who knows what can happen if he can get runners in behind him.
