Chelsea vs Manchester United - Competition: Premier League, 22. round
Match date: Sunday, 19 January 2014  
Chelsea team after 21 rounds are sitting on the very good 3rd place in the English league table being very close to the second Manchester City and the leader, Arsenal. The gap between them and the Gunners is only two points. The Blues are one of the three teams in the English Premier League (also Arsenal and Everton) that have lost the smallest amount of goals, so far 19 – with 40 scored. The best scorer in the team is Eden Hazard – 9 goals – who, so has been rumoured, soon might be playing for PSG. In the year 2014 the Blues are unbeaten – 3 matches (all away) – 3 victories. Additionally, they haven’t lost any goals in 2014 so far – 3 games, 7 goals scored. The upcoming encounter will be the first at home, so the same attitude in a first home game in 2014 is to be expected. In spite of the fact that the opponent, who is of top-league class, but is currently in a very unstable form, the Blues will be perceived as a favourite of the upcoming game.
Probable lineups Chelsea: Cech – Azpilicueta, Cahill, Terry, Cole – Matic, Ramires – Willian, Oscar, Hazard – Torres.

 Manchester United are still playing unstable. They started 2014 with three lost matches – one in the league (1:2 against Tottenham), one in the FA Cup (1:2 against Swansea) and one in League Cup (1:2 against Sunderland). And despite the fact that they managed to win pretty easily in the last round against Swansea (2:0), some of the fans and experts couldn’t help feeling that this can be a beginning of a new-old crisis. It is true that between 10.12 and 28.12 Manchester United remained unbeaten, but they are still occupying 7th place in the league, losing 11 points to the leader, Arsenal and 9 points to the opponent in the upcoming game, Chelsea. For such a titled and ambitious club as Manchester United current state is simply a catastrophe. 
Probable lineups Manchester United: de Gea – Rafael, Smalling, Vidic, Evra – Jones, Carrick – Valencia, Rooney, Januzaj – Welbec.
