Manchester United V Chelsea: Team News, Lineups, Live Stream, TV Info, MU manager’s job at stake
Manchester United vs. Chelsea match set for later today is not being seen as a match between two great sides that will decide the future of Premier League. On the other hand the two teams are fighting for their own survival and to keep the interest of their fans alive.
On the other hand the Manchester United managerâ€™s fate may hinge on the outcome of this all important match. Louis van Gaal hasnâ€™t been able to lead his team to victories. Almost everyone is criticizing him describing his strategy to be responsible for the teamâ€™s poor show.
The team hasnâ€™t seen a single win since November 21 and a loss to Chelsea means that his hope of being able to retain very important position in club soccer will be shattered. Nonetheless players have said that they want to win the match desperately for their manager.
The win is going to be tough as they need to show courage to break their three-game BPL losing streak. In contrast Chelsea has begun to turn their season around under interim boss Guus Hiddink, but that still leaves them barely hovering above relegation. In the meantime Wayne Rooney came off the bench on Boxing Day, and itâ€™s unknown if heâ€™s ready to make his return start. Chelsea is also dealing with striker problems, as Diego Costa will be unavailable for todayâ€™s match. The Spaniard is suspended, after picking up a yellow card in Chelseaâ€™s most recent match against Watford.
