Team News: Rashford to lead the line against Chelsea; Ibrahimovic benched

Manchester United go head-to-head with Premier League champions elect Chelsea at Old Trafford this afternoon. Chelsea were the team last to beat United in the league, with the home side playing 21 matches since, winning eleven and drawing ten, which is good form when you think United are undefeated in the league, but seems worse when you bring in the fact ten matches has been drawn. United need to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season, still having a chance through the league, and in the UEFA Europa League, drawing 1-1 away to Anderlecht on Thursday evening. This Thursday will be the decider as to whether Jose Mourinho will retain two chances to the pinnacle European competition next season, or whether those chances will be gone, which could well be the case.

Manchester United:

De Gea;

Valencia, Bailly, Rojo, Darmian;

Herrera, Young;

Fellaini, Pogba;

Lingard, Rashford

Substitutes:

Romero; Blind, Fosu-Mensah, Shaw; Carrick, Mkhitaryan; Ibrahimovic

Chelsea:

Begovic;

Azpilicueta, Luiz, Cahill;

Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso;

Pedro, Costa, Hazard

Substitutes:

Eduardo; Zouma, Terry; Fabregas, Loftus-Cheek, Willian; Batshuayi

United and Chelsea have a history of which 176 matches have been played. United have won 75, drawn 49 and were beaten 52 times. The last time United beat Chelsea was in October 2012 at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League. Twelve matches have been played since then, with United losing seven and drawing five times. Jose Mourinho and his United side cannot let Chelsea extend their supreme reign over United at Old Trafford today. United need to stand up ad be counted, or this will continue. Twelve matches before a victory sounds much better than thirteen matches without a victory! Come on UNITED!
