[Teams] Man Utd vs Chelsea: Confirmed Line-Ups

Manchester United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford tonight for the first big clash of the new Premier League season. Here are the confirmed line-ups for the game

Manchester United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford tonight for the first big clash of the new Premier League season. 

United boss David Moyes has decided to start striker Wayne Rooney despite interest from tonight’s opponents, as he plays just behind Robin van Persie tonight.

Jose Mourinho has surprised many by not starting with a recognised striker as Andre Schurrle starts in the ‘false 9’ role up top. Juan Mata is on the bench as Demba Ba and Victor Moses fail to make the squad.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Man Utd Team

De Gea, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Carrick, Cleverley, Valencia, Rooney, Welbeck, Van Persie.

Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Büttner, Anderson, Giggs, Young, Kagawa

Chelsea Team

Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, De Bruyne, Oscar, Hazard, Schurrle.

Subs: Schwarzer, Azpilicueta, Essien, Mikel, Mata, Lukaku, Torres

    At tyms i wonder d kind of courch we have, What is even happening? Why are they celeting players wit sentement? Is our so called courch here to kill us or what? I see no reason why the like of mata the only attacking midfelder we have and mekel the only experience defencieve midfelder we have will be on the bench for lampard and schurrel. We no longer control our game the way it was befor our self proclaim special one tulk over. Dis is not my chelsea of last season, D chelsea that dominated possesion against united last season home and away.
