Chelsea look to remain unbeaten
Chelsea have started their 2012/13 in a convincing fashion, bagging 22 points from their opening eight games. They will have to work hard tomorrow to maintain their unbeaten streak as Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge.
United have also got off to a decent start, currently sitting in third place with 18 points.
Both sides are carrying a few injuries heading into the game. For the Blues, captain John Terry is serving his four game suspension and Frank Lampard is ruled out with a calf injury that he picked up against Donetsk midweek.
United are without their off-season recruit, Shinji Kagawa, who is out for the foreseeable future with a knee injury. Phil Jones and Anders Lindegaard also miss out.
This will be Chelsea’s biggest test of the season so far. United have struggled to gain both consistency and momentum this season, but with a front line as powerful as theirs, this game could go either way.
Chelsea have been playing some incredible football so far that has both got results and
been pleasing on the eye. The likes of Juan Mata, Oscar and Eden Hazard have been an integral part of the success so far.
Momentum could play a role in this game. Chelsea were surprisingly beaten by Shakhtar Donetsk in midweek and looked far from European Champions. However United completed an impressive comeback over Braga, winning by three goals to two.
This has all the ingredients to be a great game. Kick off is at 4pm.
