    All right, you know what? We're winning at the Bridge. Calling it now, 3-1 United.

    Post-City elation... prediction will probably be different tomorrow morning when I wake up for work

    It will be much tougher, hope Carrick can play, else truly problematic

    Reckon we could easily get a draw. A win isn't beyond us if you look at form. But Chelsea are still tough to beat. Will say 1-1.

    I'd take a draw, but there's a good chance we can win.

    Shame Matic and Fabregas didn't pick up a yellow card today.

    In this form going to Stamford Bridge and getting 3 points isn't beyond us. Chelsea have been below par last few weeks, I think Jose would settle for a point now if he were offered one.

    They will fear us, and sit back. No doubt about it.

    We will win.

    The way Chelsea has been playing in the last month coupled with our own form a draw is the minimum we should expect from this one.

    Fear you, not really, no suspensions to either matic or fabregas today, we will be fine. Our defending wont be as clueless as city's either.

    We're playing really, really well but I don't think they'll fear us at all.

    Form goes out of the window in games like this and they've still been winning anyway. I'd take a point easily.

    To be fair you are easily finishing top four so you might as well go for it.

    All good runs come to an end and we are due a good performance. Expect a Jose masterclass of Liverpool and City last season proportions.

    2-0 to us.

    Last time a cocky resident City fan said similar things, we know how that ended...

    That said this is a different type of test. Mourinho isn't as clueless against big teams especially at home, will most likely sit back and counter. I predict a 1-1 draw.

    Remy back will be a big thing, to think diego is gonna miss both games against them :mad:, there left sided attack wont be as succesful considering ivanovic and willian are on that side. And eden against valencia will be something to target.

    This was said vs Liverpool and City, clearly it doesn't go out the window as much as people like to believe. We'll win.

    Im anything but cocky, but I am always confident with Jose against the big teams, and especially against United.

    Plus you are in a good run of form and I always prefer to face sides when they have won a lot on the trot as all runs come to an end, and we have been poor.

    Itll be like the games last season where you have all the play, we win 2-0.

    I think Jose will nullify the left hand side so it'll be on Mata, Herrera and Valencia to make something happen.

    Has Van Gaal ever beaten Mourinho though?

    I will say Jose will do his typical thing where he stiffles a team with 11 men that track back, then get some lucky break and rag a 1-0 and then claim he is a tactical genius and he bleeds blue

    We can afford to drop points here (unless we want the title, but c'mon let them have it for this year)

    It's important if we want 2nd we beat Arsenal at home. It looks like the top 4 is done now which means we can really play with freedom and set a statement for next year. Let's do it in this game.

    2-1 to us. Chelsea laboured to wins in the last few matches and we are in-form, and confidence is high.

    Imagine believing in jinxes. United are playing much better, we'll win, won't be as confidently as City but we'll win.

    Remy should be back.

    Same situation last time we faced where we only had Drogba!
