Manchester United start with the absolutely awful Marouane Fellaini, who unfortunately recovered from his injury suffered against Stoke.

Fellaini is partnered by Michael Carrick, with the same team chosen as started in the previous match. Borthwick-Jackson, Chris Smalling, Daley Blind and Matteo Darmian are ahead of David de Gea.

In attack, Wayne Rooney is supported by Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard on the wings, with Juan Mata at number 10 against his former side.

Morgan Schneiderlin and Ander Herrera, United's best midfielders, are on the bench as Louis van Gaal tries to really earn his sacking. Noted dispenser of racist abuse, John Terry, starts for Chelsea, so lets hope he gets absolutely torn apart.
