Manchester United starting XI (4-4-2): van der Sar; Evra, Vidic, Ferdinand, Smalling, O'Shea; Nani, Carrick, Scholes, Fletcher; Rooney; Chicharito
Subs: Kuszczak, Brown, Berbatov, Giggs, Fabio, Rafael, Gibson

Chelsea starting XI (4-4-2): Cech; Cole, Terry, Luiz, Ivanovic; Malouda, Lampard, Essien, Ramires; Anelka, Torres
Subs: Turnbull, Drogba, Mikel, Bosingwa, Zhirkov, Kalou, McEachran

I suppose this could be a '4-3-3/4-5-1' if Rooney plays on the left. However, I suspect this is the exact same lineup as we brought out versus Wigan Athletic, where it was more '4-2-3-1' in the 1st half with Rooney dropping deep to link play. Very interesting that Chicharito gets the start over Dimitar Berbatov
