Van Persie celebrates

Team news

Danny Welbeck is out of Sunday’s game with a knee injury, but Nemanja Vidic and Paul Scholes have returned to training. Although though the title has been wrapped up, Sir Alex insists he will play a strong team. This is firstly because he feels he has a duty to the other teams chasing a top-four place, but also because he would love to throw a spanner into Rafa Benitez’s works!

Form

Last weekend’s sleepy performance against Arsenal was expected, with the team having secured the title that week. We played better in the second half, however, and now the celebrations are over we will be back to business.

Head-to-head

This will be the fifth meeting between these sides this season, with Chelsea leading the series 2-1. Chelsea haven’t won at Old Trafford since 2010 but came pretty close this season in the FA Cup. They’ll be looking to end that run to help their hopes of Champions League qualification.
