This is the first time Chelsea and Manchester United going the take on each other in the pre-season friendly match 09-10. The Old Trafford will appear with their defender who was rule out for injury. Defending champions Man United is carrying most time title of premier league on the other hand Chelsea FC just two time title holders. Manchester United achieved most wins of 27 out of 38 and 6 drawn and just 4 lose. But the opposition Chelsea got 25 wins, 8 drawn and 5 lose and was in 3rd position. So the competition was so tough.

Sir Alex Ferguson’s management to lose Tevez’s efforts of the Argentine striker this year on the other Carlo Ancelotti’s management tried heart and soul to include him on the side of Chelsea.
Injury has been felt effect in both sides. Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole and Michael Ballack is doubt to attend in the FA Community Shield tournament. And the opposition Man Utd will perform without defenders Nemanja Vidic (calf), Wes Brown (thigh) and Gary Neville (groin).
The key players on the side of Chelsea are John Terry. I am not sure that Didier Drogba wil attend or not. United’s Wayne Rooney and Owen will have to face extra pressure because of the absence of Ronaldo-Tevez.
