4-2-3-1 with Costa and Hazard ruled out while Fabregas and Zouma Dropped: Strongest Chelsea Lineup vs Manchester United?


Games are coming thick and fast for all the teams in Premier League and this coming Monday night, we will have two of the dominant but weakened force of English Football go at each other. Manchester United play host to Chelsea and ahead of the kick-off, we take a look at the Predicted Chelsea lineup vs Manchester United.

Team news for the Blues look rather bleak as Diego Costa has been ruled out of the game after picking his 5th yellow card of the season while Eden Hazard is a major doubt for this game after suffering an injury against Watford last night.

With Hazard ruled out, Pedro and Willian will have to take care of the wings while Oscar will continue to lead the attack despite missing that crucial penalty kick in the 80th minute against Watford.

Cesc Fabregas‘ torrid time could get even worse as the Spaniard could lose out his starting place to Ramires after being substituted at half time vs Watford by Guus Hiddink. Ramires could see him return to action with Loic Remy set to play as the lone striker in Costa’s absence.

Defense would remain almost similar to the Watford game with Gary Cahill coming in for Kurt Zouma. United’s attackers have shown very little ambition going forward this season and that is why Blues defense could be in for an easy night at Old Trafford this coming Monday.
