United can go 5 points clear tonight with a victory at Bloomfield Road.

With Chelsea ‘back in the title race’ after hammering Bolton last night we can knock them back out with a victory over Ian Holloway’s Blackpool.

The seasiders have been the story of the season having been promoted and trying their best to prove they deserve to be here. They are currently going through somewhat of a rough patch but add to that we haven’t been the best travellers this season and it looks like this game will be one to watch.

As expected Rafael returns and importantly Rio Ferdinand has failed to get over the groin problem that saw him miss Saturday’s game against Blackburn so Chris Smalling again deputises.

Starting XI: VDS; Rafael, Smalling, Vidic, Evra; Scholes, Gibson, Fletcher; Nani Rooney Berbatov

Subs: Lindegaard, Owen, Anderson, Giggs, Hernandez, Fabio, Evans
