Predicted Starting XI: Chelsea vs Man Utd

Manchester United and Chelsea go head-to-head for the second and final time in the league this season, after Robin van Persie broke Chelsea hearts with a more than deserved 94th minute leveller at Old Trafford.

Louis van Gaal’s man have improved dramatically since then, and if their form since the turn of the year started back in September, we could well be challenging for the title.

An injury-hit Manchester United side head South, with Daley Blind, Michael Carrick, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo all unavailable, leaving Van Gaal restricted both in the middle of midfield and the heart of defence.

The Dutchman has already said that Wayne Rooney could play in the holding midfielder role, which could present one final opportunity for Radamel Falcao to prove his worth – heres to hoping he takes that chance and finally puts in a performance we’ve all been expecting.

Predicted XI

De Gea; Valencia, Smalling, McNair, Shaw; Rooney, Herrera, Fellaini; Mata, Young, Falcao
