After six wins on the bounce and nine points from three games against Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool and Manchester City, Manchester United are heading to Stamford Bridge as the Premier League’s in-form side.
Following a desperately disappointing defeat against Arsenal in the FA Cup, who’d have thought Man United would be travelling to face Chelsea after such an incredible run of results?
It doesn’t come much tougher than an away trip to Chelsea against Jose Mourinho‘s side but confidence will be flowing through the veins of every United player on Saturday and they’ll all believe they can come away with three points. The question to then ask is who starts?
Football is full of clichés and one certainly applies here: if it isn’t broken, why fix it?
With United playing so well as a team right now, there is surely very little reason why van Gaal would want to change it and if they can control the game against Liverpool at Anfield, there is every chance they can do the same at Stamford Bridge.
