Chelsea host Manchester United in the Premier League so we take a look at five potential attacking threats for both sides

In what is being billed as the biggest match of the Premier League season so far, which could potentially have an effect on the destination of the Premier League title, a resurgent Manchester United travel to Stamford Bridge for crucial clash with Chelsea.

As a result, preview five attacking threats who could impact the match, with BoyleSports pricing Chelsea at 21/20 for the win.

Juan Mata
An obvious choice, the man Jose Mourinho sold to Man Utd last January could come back to haunt them in the Red Devils’ quest for silverware, and is 5/1 with Coral to notch anytime.

And, get this…

The silky 26-year-old has dispatched against both of United’s major rivals recently. He netted in the 4-2 thumping of Manchester City last time out, as well as bagging a brace at Anfield in the 2-1 victory over Liverpool, which reads as a record of three goals in as many matches, plus an assist sandwiched in between, proving that he performs against big teams.

Eden Hazard
You could make a case for the Belgian being Chelsea’s player of the season, after a haul of 17 goals in all competitions this term. He is 9/4 with BetVictor to find the net anytime, and has scored twice before against the Red Devils.

Wayne Rooney
Will be instrumental for Louis van Gaal, if Man Utd are going to win this match, and the 29-year-old record has dispatched nine against the Blues.

His best-priced odds of 5/2 with Ladbrokes to net anytime are great value, especially with United ideally needing their big players to step up.

Didier Drogba
Mourinho will need his Ivory Coast talisman to roll back the years if the Blues are going to stand any chance of victory, and the powerful centre forward has scored four times in matches against Man Utd previously.

Odds of 2/1 with in the anytime market represent good value, especially as he will likely be operating as the lone frontman, supported by a talented attacking medley of Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and Willian.

Marouane Fellaini
In supreme form of late and reinvigorated under Van Gaal, the Belgian powerhouse, has been instrumental to Man Utd’s turnaround in form, and netted in the win against fierce rivals Man City last time out.

The 27-year-old can be a handful against Chelsea, and is more than likely to cause John Terry an abundance of problems from set-pieces. Anytime odds of 9/2 with Bet365 represent very good value.
