Manchester United vs. Chelsea: Choosing the Blues' Ideal Lineup for Sunday

Chelsea and Manchester United will come face-to-face once again at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Sunday's FA Cup Cup quarterfinal between Manchester United and Chelsea was always going to be the highlight of the round, but given their respective midweek defeats in Europe, the sense of occasion has been cranked up a notch.

This fixture is now about redemption. Chelsea will be looking to keep their season alive by extending the hope of securing at least one trophy this season having lost 1-0 to Steaua Bucharest, while United will be eager to bounce back after crashing out of the Champions League.

They are both wounded beasts and recent history has told us that hell hath no fury like Manchester United or Chelsea scorned.

While all the debate since Real Madrid's victory at Old Trafford on Tuesday has surrounded Nani's red card and Wayne Rooeny's omission from the United lineup, Rafael Benitez has selection headaches of his own.

Chelsea would have had a little over 48 hours rest after their trip to Romania to face Steaua, so the Spaniard will be debating which players are fit and ready for United. Well, Bleacher Report has done his job for him, selecting Chelsea's ideal line-up for this mouth-watering cup tie.
