Obviously I don't need to tell you how big a game this is nowadays. Although the rivalry between the two clubs and sets of fans isn't that great, Chelsea are our main title rivals. I'm not sure what to make of this. I think if we were going in to this in good form I'd fancy us to end their 4 year unbeaten home record, but we're not so I'd be happy with a draw. On the other hand, we're capable of clicking and if we do then we could turn them over, then you think of that dire performance at Anfield and think no chance....
Berbatov has a good chance of making his second appearance for the club.
Ronaldo is back, as you all know, but he might have to settle for a place on the bench.
Scholes is back after his midweek ban.
Vidic is suspended following his red card last Saturday.
Brown, no word yet. If he's fit, Sir Alex has a choice to make as to whom he plays at right back. Either Brown or Nev with Evans partnering Rio, or Brown to partner Rio with Nev playing right back.
Carrick is out for 6 weeks.
Foster twisted his ankle in the week so it looks like Kuszczak will take his place on the bench
I'll edit in the squad later.
