Mikel Starts – Chelsea's Possible Starting XI vs Man United

Mikel ChelseaChelsea and Manchester United will collide in a match whose outcome may as well largely influence where both teams will end up this season.
Blues are only 2 points behind league leaders Arsenal, while Manchester United are 5 points behind 4th placed Liverpool.
Perhaps a draw is a favorable result for both teams but at Stamford Bridge, Mourinho will surely go for the win.
Both teams have won 5 of their last 6 league games but the main concern for United is that they are without two best players Rooney and Van Persie.
As far as Chelsea team news is concerned, new signing Nemanja Matic might be ready but is unlikely to start against the Red Devils and Mourinho may opt for Mikel instead of Luiz in the midfield.
The Brazilian star started the game against Hull last week alongside compatriot Ramires.
Hazard is going to be the key again and Torres is likely to keep his starting place after impressing versus the Tigers.
Here is Chelsea’s predicted starting XI vs Manchester United.

    Mikel has been in chelsea for close to 9 seasons, he has seen it all, winning trophies, so am sure he is no longer afraid of any competition in the club. Hes Africas second best, going to Brazil with Nigeria, an achiever. God be with him.
