It’s a big one, folks.
Eight points and a match-in-hand divide first-place Chelsea and third-place Manchester United at the top end of the Premier League table, and the two giants will look to make another statement of power on Saturday at Stamford Bridge (Watch live on NBC at 12:30 p.m. ET and online via Live Extra).
The Blues are dealing with some injuries, and Didier Drogba again starts up top in place of Diego Costa. Loic Remy is not in the 18, either.
The Red Devils will trot out Paddy McNair in the back, while Angel Di Maria and Robin van Persie are on the bench again.
