Louis van Gaal’s job is on the line going into one of the late kick-offs today and Chelsea, who only recently sacked Jose Mourinho, could be responsible for getting the special one his next job.
Chelsea begin the day with the risk of dropping into the relegation zone and, after their 2-2 draw with Watford, need to produce their first victory under Hiddink if they are to even threaten for a top four finish.
Manchester United produced an abject display at Stoke on Boxing Day and Memphis Depay was one of the players who took the brunt of the criticism, his selection, or lack of it, will be one of the biggest talking points in today’s line-ups.
Rooney was dropped to the bench a couple of days ago and the England skipper is expected to return to the starting XI this evening after being one of the more effective players in the second half at the Britannia.
