Chelsea Team Breakdown
The Blues face the uncomfortable uncertainty over whether or not Frank Lampard will play in this match. It's looking doubtful at this point, but until he is ruled out, fans can still hold out hope.
Chelsea struggled after going down early in its previous matchup, which is unsettling for fans of the club. Chelsea has seen very little adversity throughout its season, and this game will go a long way towards showing fans what their club is made of.
With or without Lampard, the Blues must find a way to get their season back on track. Fans should expect the club to put on a good showing in this heated contest.
Manchester United Team Breakdown
The Red Devils will be just as focused on this matchup, as the club could give itself a comfortable position heading towards the end of the season with a win.
Javier Hernandez could be the player of the game again after kicking two huge goals for Chelsea in its previous game. He spoke about this upcoming match to the Manchester United official website via Adam Bostock:
"We knew the importance of this game, but the start was bad for us to be honest, conceding two goals at home. But happily we scored three and now we can look forward to the next game which is another very important one against Chelsea," Hernandez told ITV Sport.
Does he have anything to prove in this game?
"No, [I have] nothing [to prove]," he said. "I always say I enjoy it a lot here. I have been ready since the start of the season and when the gaffer gives me my chance, I have to do my best. If I score it's good. But if I don't score the most important thing is the team."
All eyes will be on the star forward heading into this match. The Red Devils will need Hernandez to have his best game of the year if they are to knock off Chelsea.
Prediction: Manchester United has the momentum heading into this game, which is something that should not go overlooked by soccer fans. Chelsea will allow the lingering effects of its last loss to hurt them in this game. 2-1 Manchester United.
