CONFIRMED: Manchester United v Chelsea line-ups - Rooney starts

Manchester United take on Chelsea at Old Trafford.

In the most eagerly anticipated clash of the two-week old 2013/14 Premier League season so far, Manchester United host Chelsea in the Premier League.

Both sides boast different managers to when they last met, with it being the first time David Moyes and Jose Mourinho have locked horns since their appointments at Manchester United and Chelsea earlier in the summer.

There has also been much speculation surrounding the future of Wayne Rooney, said to be unhappy at United and keen on a switch to Chelsea, with the Red Devils reluctant to sell, rejecting two offers from the Blues so far.

Both sides have 100 per cent starts to the season so far, with United on three points after winning 4-1 away at Swansea on the opening day.

Chelsea are on six points after successive home wins against Hull City (2-0) and Aston Villa (2-1).

The line-ups for the fixture have been announced and are as follows, with Chelsea having Andre Schurrle starting up front, and Rooney up front for United.

Manchester United:

De Gea, Jones, Vidic, Ferdinand, Evra. Carrick, Cleverley, Valencia, Rooney, RVP, Welbeck.

Subs: Lindegaard, Smalling, Buttner, Anderson, Giggs, Kagawa, Young.


Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, De Bruyne, Oscar, Hazard, Schurrle.

Subs: Schwarzer, Azpilicueta, Essien, Mikel, Mata, Lukaku, Torres.
