Chelsea vs. Manchester United: Picking a Blues Lineup to Beat the EPL Champions

Sunday's Premier League matchup between Chelsea and Manchester United has a lot at stake for both teams. Chelsea is currently in fourth place in the EPL and being 12 points behind the two Manchester clubs, it's very doubtful they'll be able to win the EPL title. Manchester United could possibly use this win to jump ahead of Manchester City for sole position of first place in the EPL.

So there is definitely a lot at stake for when these two teams meet. Although Manchester United are the clear favorite, it must be remembered that they haven't won a game at Chelsea since 2002. The Red Devils also have a lot of injured players right now, so this opens the door for a possible Blues victory.

Still it won't be easy. Already earlier this season Chelsea was beaten 3-1 by Manchester United at Old Trafford. In order for the Blues to win, Andre Villas-Boas is going to need to successfully coach a great match and put in a successful starting lineup. 

In this article, I'm going to predict which 11 players will start for Chelsea this weekend. My assumption is that Chelsea will use the 4-2-1-3 formation that has been working well for them lately.
