Man Utd vs Chelsea [P+R]


Starting XI

Old Trafford
Sunday, 26 November
Kick-off: 1600 GMT

Manchester United have no new injury worries ahead of the top-of-the-table clash with champions Chelsea.

Rio Ferdinand had been a doubt after picking up a foot injury but has been passed fit, while Patrice Evra could come in for left-back Gabriel Heinze.

Chelsea should have top scorer Didier Drogba (ankle) and midfielder Michael Ballack available after slight knocks.

Frank Lampard returns to the squad and Ricardo Carvalho (ankle) has recovered, but Salomon Kalou is still sidelined.

Man Utd (from): Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Neville, O'Shea, Brown, Ferdinand, Vidic, Silvestre, Heinze, Evra, Ronaldo, Fletcher, Scholes, Carrick, Giggs, Richardson, Rooney, Saha, Smith.

Chelsea (from): Cudicini, Hilario, Ferreira, Geremi, Terry, Carvalho, Boulahrouz, Bridge, A Cole, Lampard, Essien, Ballack, Makelele, Drogba, Robben, Shevchenko, Wright-Phillips, J Cole, Diarra, Mikel.


the battle of the titans!

i predict a close game with a late goal by Saha!
1-0 Saha



Senior Squad
What a first half, Shev and Drogba are getting owned, let's hope we can keep it up in the second half. We have been great, Chelsea are trying to slow the game but we aren't allowing them. Great finish by Saha, Rooney is having a good game as well. Is Vidic their target or what? He is getting some special treatment by Shev and Drogba, especially in the face.


Senior Squad
Great finish!!!
United are playing good attacking football!
The wings are working very well, Ronaldo and Neville working well on the right.
Heinze with deep crosses on the left.

Good stuff!


Red Card [Being a douche] exp. 22/1/06
Chelseas only problem is they have too many stars. Ballack and Lamps ain't clicking. Sheva and Drogba ain't matching each other.

They need Robben and Joe in the match NOW.

Great performance by Man U so far. Gigs is a fvcking human rocket.


Senior Squad
Chelsea is relying on Fat Lamps mid-range shots.
No clear cut chance from Chelsea yet.

Ballack tackles Heinze really late again. He's going to get a red card soon...
