Chelsea v Manchester United: match preview

This meeting begins a 13-game run-in during which Chelsea and Manchester United each hope to claim a Champions League berth. For Frank Lampard’s side the carrot is knowing a win takes them nine points clear of their visitors who for the same reason will be desperate to avoid this and claim victory themselves to close to within three points to the hosts. Odion Ighalo will be in United’s squad and the on-loan striker may play at some point. Jamie Jackson
