I think we'll win this. Chelsea are exactly the kind of team that our negative tactics thrive against: they want to play good football, control possession, but they're a bit sloppy and definitely dodgy at the back, so our counter-attacking style should work well. If we don't win, we're in seriously trouble in terms of a our league position.

I think we'll do this too bman. I've [perhaps foolishly] got £25 on us at 4 to 1 to win.

Chelsea Caballero; James, Christensen, Rudiger, Azpilicueta; Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic; Pedro, Batshuayi, Willian.
Substitutes: Arrizabalaga, Zouma, Alonso, Tomori, Barkley, Mount, Giroud.

Manchester United de Gea; Bailly, Maguire, Shaw; Wan-Bissaka, Fred, Matic, Williams; Fernandes; James, Martial.
Substitutes: Romero, Jones, Dalot, Mata, Pereira, Ighalo, Greenwood.

That's a weird line-up, I've got a bad feeling about that. Ole doesn't do well when he tries to be clever. On the plus side, Chelsea seems to be missing some important players.

That's a fun back 3... I actually like it in theory, but Bailly will be so rusty and I don't know if Shaw is good enough 1v1 to be a CB.

I like that we're sticking with a back 5 and a front 2 - just annoying we didn't do it when Rashford and Martial were both fit

I always liked their first album more than their second
