I think with Lingard & Martial both out he needs to change the system as we can't just play the counter attack way anymore.
I think we need to be looking at 2 up top playing Lukaku and Rashford together and maybe looking at a diamond in midfield I'd be looking to put someone like Sanchez if fit right on top of Jorgino and have my 2 strikers really press the defence. The only issue with this plan is I think Chelsea are really weak at full back but unless we put Rashford wide we don't have anyone to exploit that so we might see Lukaku out wide on the right which means it'll be Pogba who needs to get up and press on Jorgino.
Reports are Chong & Gomes will travel with the squad Greenwood won't because of injury.
I think this will be a tough game Chelsea are wounded and Stamford Bridge is not a happy hunting ground for us even in times of trouble Chelsea have nearly always got the better of us there and we've always struggled to put the handcuffs on Hazard.
In terms of selection I think there will be some rotation because it's the FA Cup but not a lot who knows we might even get to see the mystery man Fred.
I wouldn't be surprised to see a 3-5-2 here if we are to change the system without Lingard and Martial. Similar to England's set up at the World Cup.
Possibly De Gea/Romero; Bailly, Lindelof, Jones; Dalot, Herrera, Matic, Pogba, Shaw; Lukaku, Rashford.
If sticking with 3 in attack then Sanchez has to be right or central I think. Clearly not working for him playing from the left.
Hopefully see one or both of Chong and Gomes on the bench. I think one of these lads needs to replace Mata in the squad for next season and possibly this season.
Just the way of the world now especially online on social media platforms it's impossible to just be doing ok you are either the messiah or a fraud and it swings from one game to the other.
Always said the time to judge Ole's credentials is at the end of March lets see where he is then and then make a call on where we go.
Stamford Bridge is an absolute grave yard for Utd teams has been for years think it's our least fruitful away ground in the last 15 years can probably count the number of away wins on 1 hand including cup and CL. Even in times of struggle at Chelsea they've always turned us over it's just one of those places where we struggle.
If we lose tonight that's ok as long as we compete it's the same on Sunday vs Liverpool a Utd team has to try and win and compete with the opponent under the previous regime we just cowered in the corner and took our beatings that was not acceptable.
I think it will be 4-3-3 he doesn't strike me as a back 3 kind of guy you do wonder if he'll try and man mark Hazard as that has been a tactic for us recently but really I'd like to see us go at Chelsea's weak spots which is the wide areas.
I don’t think Ole’s credentials should be based on the result tonight at all. All I ask for is to compete and actually look like we are a team who can beat these bigger sides. Obviously losing Lingard and Martial isn’t great but if we can beat Chelsea and hold our own against Liverpool and City in the next month then think Ole is the hot favourite.
I could see the logic in going for Mata because it’ll probably be a close game and his guile could unlock the door for us. However I really think this Chelsea team can be got at as shown by City, Bournemouth and a few others this season. Big question is who would the Chelsea left back rather play against? Mata or Lukaku? Lukaku has his flaws but against Arsenal in a similar game he was superb.
I think we could see Pogba play deeper today with Herrera pushing forward and stopping Jorginho because with this Sarri side you stop Jorginho you stop Chelsea. That’s the big shame with Lingard missing as would be perfect
I don’t even think we’ve been a great as the commentators are making out. Chelsea have been very poor and not really given us much to worry about. Don’t understand why he hasn’t thrown Giroud up top along with Higuain at 2-0 down
