The line-ups for today’s highly anticipated clash between Chelsea and Manchester United have been released.
The visitors have no real surprises in their line-up, with the only shock inclusion being that of Maruoane Fellaini, who has become some what of a ‘big game player’ under Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Chelsea’s XI, however, has more than plenty to discuss. Antonio Conte’s side are once again lining up as a back three, a formation that the Italian boss has used so effectively whilst at the helm of both Juventus and the Italian national team.
The Blues utilised the formation for the first time under Conte last week in their 3-0 drubbing of reigning Premier League Champions Leicester City, and it seems that the new boss has opted to stick with his ‘winning formula’ once again this weekend.
So are the Chelsea fans happy about it? We’ve hunted on Twitter to get some of the best reactions from the Stamford Bridge faithful – and indeed the United fans – so here they are …
Chelsea team today: Courtois; Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Cahill (c); Moses, Kante, Matic, Alonso; Pedro, Diego Costa, Hazard. #CFC

Personally think Mourinho should be attacking Chelsea's 3-4-3 with full force. Their back three are a liability if you have a go at them.
