It will be interesting to see how Man Utd cope without Ronaldo and Tevez and it’s also a good match to see how Chelsea is going to play with their new system under Carlo Ancelotti.
The summer transfer dealings for both clubs so far is also interesting with both clubs not splashing the cash as their usual standards, they still have time to do business but as it stands Utd have brought in Antonio Valencia (Wigan, undisclosed); Michael Owen (Newcastle, free); Gabriel Obertan (Bordeaux, £3m); Mame Biram Diouf (Molde); Paul Pogba (Le Havre) while Chelsea have roped in Ross Turnbull (Middlesbrough, free); Daniel Sturridge (Manchester City, free); Yuri Zhirkov (CSKA Moscow, undisclosed).
Out of all those signing it’s probable that we will only get to see Valencia, Owen, Zhirkov and Sturridge in the game.
United have some injury worries going into the match with Vidic and Van Der Sar out while Chelsea have no major concerns.
Don’t forget to watch the game live.
