Managers David Moyes and Jose Mourinho will be looking to win one over each other in early goings of the title race after both managers joined to new clubs this summer.
In team news, Mourinho is expected to be without defender David Luiz, who remains doubtful for the contest with a hamstring problem. The Brazilian center-back missed Chelsea’s Premier League openers against Hull and Aston Villa and could skip the Old Trafford.
He, however, was still named in the Chelsea traveling squad.
Mourinho must also decide on whether to star Demba Ba, Fernando Torres or Romelu Lukaku in his attack.
Meanwhile, Moyes has hinted that striker Wayne Rooney could join Robin van Persie in the Manchester United starting line-up tonight, despite Chelsea pushing to sign the player before the end of the transfer window.
Danny Welbeck has also been playing well and would feel a little disappointed to lose his place after scoring twice in the season opener against Swansea City.
Manchester United (squad): De Gea, Lindegaard, Smalling, Jones, Ferdinand, Vidic, Evans, Evra, Buttner, Fabio, Zaha, Valencia, Carrick, Cleverley, Anderson, Giggs, Lingard, Januzaj, Welbeck, Rooney, Van Persie
