RCM – Ramires
After another woeful performance from Cesc Fabregas, Mourinho is likely to choose between Ramires or John Obi Mikel. Ramires’ pace could see him pip the Nigerian to a starting place.
LCM – Nemanja Matic
The holding midfielder has been noticeably off key since the start of the season; however, his stunning strike against Everton at the weekend saw his game improve significantly, and will hopefully have a lasting impact on his confidence.
