Chelsea against Manchester United – it’s one of the most eagerly anticipated fixtures on the calendar.

The two sides have been involved in some highly entertaining, and often controversial, meetings in recent years. The modern rivalry has only intensified following the public feud involving managers Antonio Conte and Jose Mourinho.

There is plenty riding on Sunday’s game. Bragging rights for the fans, and managers, and what could prove to be a huge three points in the race for Champions League qualification.

As the Metro report, Conte has confirmed that the reigning Premier League champions will be making the trip up North without David Luiz, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Ross Barkley, who have all been ruled our with respective injury problems.

Despite the games coming thick and fast, it seems unlikely that Conte will field anything other than a full-strength side at Old Trafford, such is the magnitude of the fixture.

Here’s how we predict that the Blues will lineup for the game, with 12-goal Alvaro Morata returning to the attack and Gary Cahill remaining among the substitutes.
