Chelsea vs. Manchester United: Complete Preview, Team News, Predicted Lineups

Whenever Chelsea and Manchester United meet, you can expect there to be fireworks.

As if it wasn't enough that these are the top two teams in the EPL right now, extra spice has been added to the mixture over John Terry's racism trial and its aftermath.

The four-game ban handed to Terry means that he will miss this Sunday's showdown at Stamford Bridge, but the recent history between Rio Ferdinand and Ashley Cole should be more than enough to add to the heat between the sides.

As it should though, football will take the spotlight this Sunday.

Both teams have endured mixed fortunes in recent weeks.

United picked themselves back up after a disappointing 3-2 loss to Tottenham Hotspur, with a run of wins in both the EPL and the Champions League.

Chelsea are still undefeated in the league, but will have to recoup quickly after a loss on the road to Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League this week.

Both teams exhibit an exciting array of attacking talent and perhaps some suspect defending, meaning the goal count should be high and the match thrilling.
