Both sides are struggling at the moment and it could be a defining clash for the under-fire Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal.
The Dutchman might follow the path of his former student and could be the next man to be sacked after José Mourinho, specially after his side’s recent run of form and a defeat against Chelsea could be curtains for him.
Manchester United slumped to a humiliating 2-0 defeat at the Britannia Stadium in their previous match and will do their best to bounce back after four straight defeats in all competitions.
As for Chelsea, the Blues looked motivated under their new manager Guus Hiddink, but failed to secure a win against a spirited Watford side on Saturday afternoon, as Oscar failed to convert from the spot.
Manchester United Vs Chelsea Team News
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal is on borrowed time as the Dutchman will be without his five first-team players due to injuries and suspension and will need to win this high-profile clash to hold on to his job.
While defensive midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is also expected to return to the squad after recovering from his hip injury, Ander Herrera is likely to replace Marouane Fellaini in the starting lineup.
At the same time, Bastian Schweinsteiger has finished serving his three-match ban and is expected return to the starting lineup.
But for Chelsea, there are no injury issues at the moment, and it will be interesting to see if Guus Hiddink makes any significant changes to the lineup that drew against Watford.
The only absence for Hiddink will be Diego Costa, who will hopefully be replaced by Remy. The Brazilian is suspended for the Manchester United game after picking up a few bookings in his last few outings.
