Will today be Louis van Gaal’s last day as Manchester United boss?
Or will the Dutchman shove two fingers up and the English media and the hoards of worldwide haters by leading Man United to a hugely important win over struggling Chelsea?
Ahead of the mouthwatering match at Old Trafford on Monday, we’ve got an incredible offer.
Wayne Rooney will surely return to the United staring XI on Monday.
Rooney came off the bench at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday for the second half, and the all-time leading England goalscorer turned out his best performance for some time.
Elsewhere, Van Gaal is likely to make some changes for the Chelsea match, although it’s difficult to predict what those changes will be. Memphis Depay, however is likely to lose his place in the side, while Bastian Schweinsteiger is available to return after his suspension. Morgan Schneiderlin could also return to first team action.
Chelsea, 15th in the table and just two points above the drop zone, also have selection issues.
Loic Remy may start in attack as Diego Costa is suspended after collecting his fifth booking of the season, while Eden Hazard is a doubt after he limped out of Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Cesc Fabregas is out of the Chelsea matchday squad.
Other possible rotations for Guus Hiddink could be to start Ramires in midfield, while Kurt Zouma could start at the back after John Terry and Gary Cahill lined up against Watford in a 2-2 draw on Saturday.
It’s difficult to predict Monday’s match due to the underwhelming form of both sides.
In general though, Chelsea are unbeaten in their last five Premier League meetings with Man United, while the last three fixtures between these two sides at Old Trafford in the Premier League have produced just three goals in total.
It’s also worth noting that Guus Hiddink has won his last three competitive meetings with Louis van Gaal; all with PSV against AZ Alkmaar in the Netherlands in 2005-06.
Predicted Man United XI: De Gea, Young, Smalling, Jones, Blind, Schweinsteiger, Schneiderlin, Herrera, Mata, Martial, Rooney.
Predicted Chelsea XI: Courtois, Ivanovic, Zouma, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Matic, Ramires, Willian, Oscar, Pedro, Remy.
