Chelsea have not lost in their last 10 Barclays Premier League fixtures. Manchester United have won 51 of their last 59 home matches, losing just five – two of those defeats came against Chelsea.
New Manchester United manager David Moyes will take charge of his first home Barclays Premier League clash at Old Trafford against The London Blues on Monday.
United won their season opening match against the Swans last weekend, with Robin van Persie and Danny Welbeck scoring doubles for the champions and Wayne Rooney looking fit. Rooney could make his first start under Moyes against Chelsea after recovering from injury.
"There have been a lot of things I have been looking forward to – like taking the team on tour and leading them out at Wembley,” Moyes said. "But to do it at Old Trafford for the first game against Chelsea is a thrill for me, it really is."
With both sides aiming for the Barclays Premier League title, the match will be intense, with neither club willing to concede early ground to their rivals.
"Wayne's got a good chance of playing,” Moyes said. “He has a good chance of starting.”
Brazilian defender Rafael Da Silva, Darren Fletcher, Nick Powell, Ashley Young, Nani, and Javier Hernandez are not likely to start.
Jose Mourinho's Chelsea began their campaign with consecutive home wins against Hull City and Aston Villa.
Mourinho’s only concern is David Luiz, who is a doubt to feature due to a hamstring injury.
