-------De Gea------------
Rafael--Jones---Rojo---Shaw
-----Fellaini---Blind--------
Herrera---Mata----Di Maria---
----------Falcao-------------
Fellaini at CDM dont work. If he has to play then he needs a role that will make him get into the box. Also Herrera at RM is not going to happen. I would also switch Rojo to LB for the extra height he provides.

------------DDG
Rafael--Jones--Smalling--Rojo
-----------Blind
--Fellaini/Mata---Herrera
Valencia----Falcao----Di Maria

Valencia isn't playing Yaldho. I think Shaw should play he has the extra incentive of being a chelsea boy from the start, he's got a point to prove and he'll hopefully begin some good form there.

Fellaini deserves the start but I can't justify Mata not playing against his old club. It wouldn't feel right seeing him on the bench after all that's the reason he left them because he would be on the bench for such an important game after being POTY the 2 years he was there.

Tough call...glad it's not my job. I have faith in us regardless, we obviously have the talent..we just need a good team performance and we should walk away with the 3 points.
I agree Valencia most likely wont play but he could give us that balance i feel. He will protect the right side very well. It will give more freedom to our central midfielders. Just because he was a good players for Chelsea is no reason for Mata to start but it would be great for him personally if he gets a start.
Exactly that's what I mean about Mata, its just a shame you know?

and I agree valencia's work rate would be great but he wont play he's not fit :/
rojo and shaw are the same height: 6' 1"

if height is a major concern put jones at RB and smalling at CB

Priceless lol
4-2-3-1 for Chelsea.
......DE GEA.......
Rafa...Jones..Smalling...Rojo..
.....Carrick...Blind...........
Herrerra...Mata.....Maria.....
..........Falcao.......
what thinks you fellas?

can Rojo play LB
Lovely. But unlikely. RVP will start. And Carrick is not going to start as hes playing for reserves on Friday.
+1
@Drogbalampard did you missed the world cup?
@ drogbalampard He started all of argentina's matches as the leftback.
i wtached at the WC but i tought he was a CB :D
i like it
You forgot van Gaals love child don't think he'll be on the bench.
3months into the season

Our best player : Di Maria
Most important player: Rooney

Agree or disagree?
Define important. Someone we need to start every game? De Gea. Lol. Rooney might be the captain but his place can be filled, though yes he is the most important out of our strikers. Agree with the best player choice.
agree
+1
ESPN reporting that Madrid wants to spend another 17 million pounds to sign chicharo.
i'd say for a striker it's much easier to score in bundesliga/spanish league than in EPL, especially when you play in teams like madrid/barcelona/bayern/dortmund...

so im not surprised if chicha performs very well in madrid...

Yes please. A good move for all parties. Chicha will score for fun against lower table teams in La Liga, we'll get 17 millions for our forth choice striker, and Madrid will have a good back up for Benzema and a shirt seller.
+1
It's mostly because Madrid is so ridiculously stacked. Any quality finisher will get goals when he's surrounded by Ronaldo, Bale, James, Modric, Kroos, and Isco
^2 seasons ago, it was Alonso, Di Maria, Ozil, Ronaldo. Well, I suppose that proves money can buy success. I'm not trying to discredit Madrid or anything, am just saying people who say money can't buy success need to rethink their values.
We will beat chelsea 4 1, they won't see it coming, they will come and try to park the trucks but we will pull them apart like a shark, di maria will assist all four goals... you heard it here first my people
+2
I'll have what you're having! :p
+6
why would we park the bus against a team with a weak defence... nonetheless will be a good game! im expecting a lot of goals
Weak defence? Weak?
I let you know sir, we didn't concede against the mighty QPR.

Bet you feel silly now
+5
because your coach is mourinho.. thats what he does in all the big games.

besides that, utd are at home and will have the incentive to attack, leaving gaps behind. thats exactly how teams have been beating us in the last year. they defend deep and hit us on the counter. if west brom can do that and score twice it makes sense to try that against us and probably not concede 2 because your defense is stronger.
+1
Why won't you park the bus against El Tigre, The Tiger and Falcao at the Theatre of Dreams. Au Revoir!

Alright, back to Earth. We just need to hope that our players hit top form and hope LVG gets the tactics right. We need to set the right mentality for the game.
There's a big difference of being optimistic and delusional.
let's all be fair and stop labelling chelshit as "bus parker"

let's admit our defense has been very flaky this season while chelsea has been playing very cleverley so far

a win would be great but what would be greater is if we can dominate possession and launch numerous on-target shots because winning a game is one thing, but having the ability to play beautifully against strong opponent is another thing... it's a proof that we can have a sustainable season ahead of us...
You have to beat chelsea. I think all the top teams will fall short at stamford Bridge. But at Old trafford, Anfield, and Emirates...it's very possible to beat them..And we all need Chelsea to lose ASAP..this momentum they have is not good for any of us
i'm not delusional lol, i'm just joking around
+1
Cleverley is playing for Aston Villa ;)
I don't literally mean park the bus like they did last season I mean play on the counter. I think it will be a scoring draw.
i don't think we'll play Park the Bus but we'll play counter attacks
Park the bus and counter attack is pretty much the same thing bro
counter attack just seems cooler to say :D
https://twitter.com/Sport_Witness/status/525328384747134976?s=09

if his wage isnt too high, and he agrees to be 2nd choice, i dont rly mind having him in our squad
that is precisely what we are getting him for. First choice De Gea both in United and Spain.

Lindegaard wants to move so be it, if something we now have a 2nd goalkeep world class that has so much experience that would make all Diablo 3 servers crash.
Damn, check out Lamela's goal tonight, was a super goal.

Absolutely brilliant!
Tomorrow's headlines: Florentino Perez wants Lamela at Bernabeu.
+11
lol
"lamela was born to play in white, he is a true son of madrid.

but he plays for tottenham so we would never talk about how much we want him in the media. we'd never say we'll offer 2-3x his actual value, because spurs are our friends and we respect them. we have this great partnership where we buy their best players and we loan them some of our reserves. win-win for everyone."

-Flo Perez
/end quote

+8
The statement sounded alright until this "we have this great partnership where we buy their best players and we loan them some of our reserves. Win-win for everyone." Sound like they're ripping them off even though its true.
lol perez would have stopped at the partnership part, i added the rest for spice. ive heard spurs fans air this complaint of the so called "partnership" so i wanted to include it, although obviously perez would never say that in the media.
i love number 33's reaction

http://www1.skysports.com/football/news/11668/9530657/premier-league-chelseas-diego-costa-hospitalised-with-virus-ahead-of-super-sunday-trip-to-manchester-united

Costa hospitalised earlier this week with a virus, sounds pretty serious to be hospitalised, he has been discharged but still, apparently carrying a hammy injury as well although I'm not sure how valid that is lol.

Surely he wont be playing on Sunday? Would be a pretty elaborate bluff if he does lol, he will need a medical miracle to be totally ready to play in what will be an intense game.

I don't want to wish injury on any player but I hope he doesn't play on Sunday, defence is having kittens as it is lol.
I think its safe to say he wont play on sunday..there is only 0.001% chances of him recovering from both hamstring and virus issue in just couple of days...So Drogba will lead the attack most likely.
@Bazinga

I can see Drogba even at his age causing us plenty of problems anyway, we're pretty weak in the air tbh.

I hope Costa makes a full recovery from his virus, just after Sunday please :D
+2
Dont know why..But, I feel its going to be a cagey game on sunda...good luck and let the best team win :D

the telegraph seem to think costa also pulled his groin, so he's not going to be up for selection. we will know more after mourinho's presser tomorrow.
what virus?
ebola?

"Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has offered the 32-year-old former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes a chance to complete his rehabilitation from a knee injury and to work his way back to fitness with the club."
Hmm..

http://www.manutd.com/en/News-And-Features/Football-News/2014/Oct/louis-van-gaal-offers-victor-valdes-chance-to-recover-from-injury-at-aon-training-complex.aspx?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=post&utm_campaign=ManUtd
Why here? The club with the most injuries? Is it because of our new medical facility? I'm wondering why LVG made the decision.
Maybe for De Gea to learn some from Valdes.
Nice gesture and it tests the new facilities too. Not sure about him signing for us. Im sure he's thought about this carefully.
@Shiwa

Its not costing us anything, he isn't contracted, he might even be getting charged for using the facility's lol.

Oh and I'm pretty sure it was Van Gaal who promoted Valdes from the Barca academy, probably just a favour for an old pupil.
"Valdes, a free agent, will have his recovery supervised by the United medical staff before training with the first team, as he bids to regain full fitness."

He is not getting payed maybe, but definitely not getting charged as well. It sounds like united is offering him route to recovery and if all goes well sign him as a back-up next season.
@Bazinga

Yeah that's why I said "might", the new Samsung medical facility we've had built is state of the art, Its not open for the recovery of the footballing world I wouldn't think lol, no way is he getting paid for the luxury of using our facility's.

I think this is probably just a favour, I don't see the point in signing him even on a free, Spanish Dave is number 1.
I think it is LVG's way of leaving the door open for possibly getting Valdes as the backup to DDG with Lindegaard not in LVG's plans. Just my guess.
+1
MUFC1990 - Yeah, but in professional world nobody will do favor's for free...LVG must be having some plans for him considering Lindegaard (30) is also not any younger than Valdes
I'm surprised Lindegaard decided to stay despite not getting any first team action. He seems fine with it too, I admire that. If he cant get games, what makes you think Valdes will unless De Gea gets injured or his form miraculously plummets (which hasn't happened since... when?).
yeah i posted this below. seems we will sign him, otherwise why isnt he getting treatment at barca or some other club?

he will obviously give more compeitition to de gea but i'd prefer if we signed de gea to a long term contract before we sign valdez.. sends the wrong message otherwise. also we signed some giant 17 year old, i wonder how he fits into all of this. perhaps it is too soon to be talking about him in the first team set up.

like phil jones and ashley young and the other players we signed that summer, they have less than 2 years on contract and will have just 1 year on contract by the time summer kicks around. jones and de gea should sign soon or it means we will let them leave. we should offer young on a free and try to sign reus :P
+2
It has the Cillessen-Krul vibe, the young with potential and the experienced one. Maybe LVG knows how to use Valdes at specific situations.
