Line-Up Tonight

Line-Up Tonight

It`s a return to that simmering cauldron of hate tonight when Manchester United return to Stamford Bridge for a Capital One Cup (League) game.

Previously, in this competition, Sir Alex has taken the opportunity to blood a few youngsters whilst also giving his fringe players a chance to shine, tonight looks as if it will be no different.

Talking about his possible starting eleven, Sir Alex has remarked to the media,

"Obviously we will make changes for Wednesday`s game. The squad that played at Newcastle in the last round will be in place again."

"You don`t want to lose down there and we want to continue in the cup."

"Any game down there is going to be tough. There has been good progress there since Roberto Di Matteo took the job. They are big games - and big games are good for us."


Our spies tell us that Chris Smalling and Phil Jones are still on the injured list, as is Nemanja Vidic whilst the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie are likely to be rested.

However, one young man likely to feature is our 19 year-old centre back Michael Keane. Obviously, the youngster is looking forward dot continuing his Capital One Cup crusade remarking to the media,

"I know there are probably only going to be one or two opportunities because of the players involved but I can`t think like that."

Take every opportunity that comes young man!
